  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This cozy cowl is knit with DK weight wool for crisp cabled stitches with a super soft suri lining. Qing Fibre’s Melted Baby Suri is my favorite fluffy fibre and it is oh so soft next to the skin. The length of the cowl can easily be customized by knitting more cabled pattern repeats. I recommend selecting a solid wool like West Wool Tandem to help exaggerate the cabled stitch definition. This quick-toknit cowl will surely keep you comforted and warm this woolly season.
