This cowl is simple yet eye catching in it's construction as it is knitted fat and seamed at the end. It includes both written and charted instructions. Matches the Criss Cross Cabled Headband - *Perran Yarns have offered an exclusive voucher code for purchasers of this pattern. The code is included in the pattern.* The cabled pattern is very effective, using both knit and purl stitches to create a cable within a cable effect. It is more unusual than some cables, but you will soon pick up the repeating pattern. It is also quite quick to knit up so would make a great last minute gift if you fnd yourself needing to whip something up from your stash. The cowl takes around 85g to 100g of aran weight yarn. Perfect for using up that leftover ball of yarn!

I am currently offering a 20% discount from my Etsy store for subscribers to my newsletter. Just click the link! My Nan taught me to knit when i was a little girl. As a teenager I taught myself to cross stitch. Now I am in my 30's and am currently having a bit of a renewal in my knitting passion! I have also taught myself to crochet. In the past I have done sample knitting for Rowan yarns as well as their head designer Marie Wallin. I am enjoying writing my own knitting and crochet patterns. Most of my designs are with my children in mind, things that they would like me to make for them.
