White Cabled Cowl Knitting Pattern



Cabled cowl is perfect little neckwarming accessory. Since this cowl is only about a half as much knitting as a full-length scarf, you will have a new cowl in no time!
This cowl is as fun to knit as it is fun to wear. Chunky cables make it easy to wear with any coat; under your heavy winter coat or over a light spring jacket.

  • Tension Gauge: 22 st = 10 cm [4’’], 30 rows 10 cm [4’’]

  • WS – wrong side

  • C12F: slip next 6 sts onto cb and hold at front, knit next 6 sts then knit the 6 sts from cable needle (left cross).
  •  C12B: slip next 6 sts onto cn and hold to back, purl next 6 sts then purl the 6 sts from the cable needle (right cross)
  •  6-st RC (RS): Slip 3 sts to cn (cable needle) and hold to back, k3, k3 from cn

Baby Diaper Cover Free Knitting Pattern



What will you need:

1 ball yarn (50 g.). I used 4 play. Blue
Circular knitting needles: size 4;
Regular needles: size 4 mm/US 6
Tension Gauge 22 st = 10 cm [4''], 32 rows = 10 cm [4'']



Tip!

The knitting should be loose and soft because wool felts up with wear, causing the diaper cover to shrink slightly. Before starting to knit the actual garment, knit a swatch and adjust your knitting gauge to correspond tothat of the pattern.

A wool diaper cover is worn over a regular diaper. A reusable diaper cover is easy to make.
