Give yourself a Valentine: a cozy cabled cowl to warm your heart (and neck) until spring finally arrives. This is a great beginner cable project. You’ll learn to read simple cable charts and how to make a stretchy cast-on (to fit comfortably over your shoulders) and a more secure bind-off (to tuck beneath your chin). Class sample worked in mYak Baby Yak Medium (100% baby yak, 125 yards/50g) on US 9/5.5mm needles.
Materials: (2) skeins Manos del Uruguay Maxima (100% merino, 218 yards/100g) or 250 yards similar worsted weight yarn; US 10/6mm 16” circular needle; copy of City Creek Cowl pattern by Susan Lawrence (available free on Ravelry).
