I was in a new yarn store today and saw the perfect yarn for this. I like the way the instructions are written. I find cable confusing but I don't think I will have any trouble with this pattern. This will work up so nicely and your friends will think you paid a fortune for the cowl. Thank you.

This is gorgeous and looks like a great way to practice cable knitting. Can't wait to give it a shot!

What I like about this cowl pattern is that it's worked flat and then the two ends are sewn together at the end. Although I don't mind working in the round, I prefer making flat pieces on straight needles. This is perfect for that and the cables and color are so pretty.

Another interesting cowl and a good way to solidify your cable ability... one of the great features of these cowl and scarf patterns is the chance to learn and practise skills before taking that giant leap into a jacket or sweater that needs that special stitch
