I knit this pattern in an evening meant it to be a gift for a friend but like it so well and it would go so well with my jacket that its future is under advisement. When finished it looks as if it were so much more complicated to knit than in actuality - brilliant design!

There are so many possibilities for this faux cable pattern. The cowl is really nice and would great in any color. It would be a pretty quick knit as well because the stitches are so easy. This stitch pattern would also look great as a scarf for a man or woman. I'm eager to add try all these possibilities.

What a beautiful pattern. I'm anxious to do this pattern in a baby blanket. Any ideas or patterns I could refer to?

Hi mountainjoy, the main difference will be that instead of knitting in the round for a cowl you will be knitting flat for a blanket. Fortunately, the designer has provided instructions for knitting flat. Click on the link above, then scroll down to the Comments section. She has provided a link there to the knitted flat pattern. You'll have to double or triple the number of stitches you cast on to make it blanket-sized (and repeat the pattern that many more times too).

A pattern that has everything going for it. It's nice looking when it is done. It's easy to make. It's easy to remember. It's the kind of pattern that you want to make for everyone . And you'll want to make it in several colors to keep for yourself.

One of those patterns that is committed to memory in no time so one can knit and read (or watch television if one so desires) and find it finished before the book is done - and only one skein. Knitted in the round so nothing to seam and when it is complete, the pattern looks so complex that no one will know that it was other than a difficult knitting pattern unless one gives the game away
