Chunky Cable Cowl

This simple little cowl is cozy enough to keep you warm, but small enough to stay out of the way as you layer up for colder weather. Make it today for a quick accessory that will stay with you through the seasons. Are you a little fuzzy on the knit stitch? Be sure to watch our video tutorial below.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Size: 23” around, 6” tall

Gauge: 7 sts and 9 rows in a 4” square in stockinette stitch

Materials

Yarn: Tahki Yarns Gemini (49 yards [45 meters]/50 grams): #08 Sunset (2 skeins)
Needles: US size 19 (15.0 mm) needles

Pattern Notes

This cowl is started with a provisional cast on and grafted into a seamless circle after the last row. If preferred, it can be started with a regular cast on and seamed together at the end.
This pattern can also be used to make a wide scarf, though at least three skeins would be required to make it of a decent length.
