Product details

Big needles and wide reversible cables produce a comfy cowl, whether youâre using a luxury yarn, or a sturdy, washable acrylic. I made several with both Red Heart and Lion Brand Superwash Merino Cashmere blend, and all of them were soft and warm.

This cowl can double as a headband. Itâs unisex, as long as you choose appropriate buttons and call it a âneck gaiter" instead of a âcowl" for your male recipients! There are identical cables on the front and back. No seams, no visible cast-on edges.

This is knit flat; using a US #8 needle for the cast-on, bind-off and double-knitted rows at each end (creating tubular beginnings and endings with no cast-on edge). A US #15 is used for the 60 rows of the body of the cowl, which makes it knit up quickly.

Gauge is not a big concern, as you will just repeat the 12-row pattern as many or few times as needed for the length you require.

Note: There are several photos, but the last pattern page is a one-page, black
