This reversible ribbed scarf or cowl has an attractive asymmetrical cable. It's worked in super bulky yarn, so it knits up very quickly.
The cowl can be worked in one of three sizes depending on how you want to wear it. The sample cowl is in the medium size (~44" circumference) and used 2 skeins of Cascade Yarns Lana Grande. The scarf used 4 skeins of Lana Grande.
Don't have gigantic yarn? You could substitute with two strands of a bulky yarn.
