Windflower Cowl Pattern
This cozy cowl is just full of cable twists. I have used a combination of both right and left-leaning cable crosses to create an engaging pattern with intriguing texture. When selecting your yarn, I find this cowl to work best with roving type yarn to really show off the depth of the cable stitches.
Included with this pattern are instructions in both written and chart form, depending of your preference.
