What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that I was able to knit the cowl fairly quickly and without any real difficulty. I love knitting cables.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You should have the 108 yards of super bulky yarn as recommended by the designer. However, if you have a slender neck, you may wish to consider shortening it by omitting one cable repetition.

Well done you! Now you can tackle any cable pattern!

Thank you very much for sharing this wonderful pattern and providing a tutorial. Your instructions are clear and encouraging, and the in-progress photos showing each stage are very helpful. You have helped me conquer any trepidation I may have had to knit cables! In fact, now I find myself drawn to cabled patterns and being more aware of cabled cardigans and sweaters around me. Yesterday at a staff meeting I was "studying" two different sweaters that colleagues were wearing!
