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.



What will you need:
  •    2 balls yarn. Each 200 m, 100 g. I used “Patons”, Smoothie DK, 100% Acrylic.
  • Colour: 01020
  • Needles:  4 mm [US 6].
  • Tension Gauge: 22 st = 10 cm [4’’], 30 rows 10 cm [4’’]
  • Big sewing needle.

Cabled Cowl  Measurement:

Circumference – 68 cm.

High (not stretched ) – 32 cm.

Abbreviations and explanations

  •   CN – cable needle;
  •   RS – right side
  • WS – wrong side
  • K – knit
  • P – purl
  • 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
  •  6-st LC (WS): Slip 3 sts to cn and hold to front, p3, p3 from cn.

Instructions:

1. Cast on 96 stitches, or as many as you want the cowl wide (must be in a multiple of 12);
2. Begin cabled pattern, working until the cowl is long enough to wrap comfortably around your neck or  18 times:
Row  1 (RS): Knit to end of row;
Row  2 (WS): Purl to end of row;
Row  3 (RS): Knit to end of row;
Row  4 (WS): Purl to end of row;

Row 9 (RS): Knit to end of row;
Row 10 (WS): C12B, p6, [6-st LC, p6] x 5, C12B, p6.

3. Bind off and seam the two ends together.
4. Wear it all winter and be proud that you knit it yourself.

  5. Am I really supposed to do the second cable row on the wrong side? Row 10, as written? I've never done cables on the wrong side of a piece.
