Rnd 2: *C2L, k3, p2; rep from *.
Rnd 4: *K1, C2L, k2, p2; rep from *.
Rnd 6: *K2, C2L, k1, p2; rep from *.
Rnd 8: *K3, C2L, p2; rep from *.

This pattern is written to use one skein of yarn with little leftover.
It can be easily customized by adding or subtracting repeats. The Bulky weight sample used 4 vertical repeats, while the Worsted weight sample used 7 vertical repeats.
Note that gauge is not crucial to this project, though it will impact the final measurements and the amount of yarn used. Both yarns use the same needle size to achieve a similar gauge.
CO 98 sts.
Work Cable Pattern from chart or written instructions until cowl is desired depth, ending after Rnd 8.
BO all sts, using a loose bind off.
Cut yarn and weave in any remaining ends.
Gently block to desired dimensions.
I’m hoping to be able to get a pattern for fingerless gloves, either knit or crochet.
This is my first time on I like kinging. It will take me a while to figure it out so bare with me
Hi Bernice! We have a variety of fingerless gloves:

I live in the US and wrote you a few times but never heard back.
I was wondering Alpaca Tweed Worsted Weight Yarn would work for this pattern.
Thanks a lot.
Hello Rita! I’ve reached out to the designer for advice and she or I will reply as soon as possible. Thanks! – Nicola, Editor
Hi! So, I think we actually connected over on Ravelry with this question – and I hope that I was able to answer you there?
But, in answer to your question, yes, a Worsted yarn would work just fine – it will depend on your gauge. Since you’re using a slightly thinner yarn then the sample calls for, you might want to try a few different needle sizes and see how your gauge works out.
Any other questions, please, don’t hesitate to reach out – you can message me on Ravelry as SarahDawns, or you can e-mail me.
I live in rhe USA and wondered if ALPACA TWEED WORSTED WEIGHT YARN WOULD WORK FOR THE CRISIAL COWL.

Good Morning from USA. I have 1 SKEIN OF ALPACA TWEED WORSTED WEIGHT YARN FROM LONDON.
WILL IT WORK FOR THIS PATTERN.
Do you sell the denim yarn?
Hello Carol! We do not sell the yarn. You may need to contact the company to see where you can find the yarn locally or how to order. Hope that helps! – Nicola
