Horseshoe cables adorn this cowl worked in aran weight plied yarn, framed by ribbing on bottom and top edges. Cables are fun and quite addictive to knit—you’ll want to make more than one of these! Big Cable Cowl is part of a beautiful collection entitled Texture: Exploring Stitch Patterns in Knitwear by Hannah Fettig, the designer behind Knitbot.
Gift Kit includes the book, Texture as well as selected yarn. At Yarn Loop, we believe that you should always get yarn with your new pattern book!
