Classic Cabled Cowl
If you have not tried cables yet, this pattern is for you! It's simple with this big fat yarn and large needles! It's so simple, in fact, that you'll wonder why you haven't tried them before. I am the instructor for the Craftsy Workshop for Classic Cabled Cowl or you can purchase the pattern alone in my Etsy shop. The workshop is on sale for $7.99 regularly $15.99 and the Etsy pattern is $5.00.
You can whip these up for your family and friends as gifts in one evening! The same pattern will work for women, men and teens and uses just one skein of super bulky yarn!
The lighter yarn colors really show off your cable work! The buttons really make it extra special. No buttonholes here! Just poke the buttons up through the cowl. I suggest you take your finished cowl to the button store so you can see what it will look like.
If you like the giganto buttons, purchase snaps, as the big buttons won't go through. I am often asked where I purchase my buttons. Hancock Fabrics, JoAnn Fabrics are two stores that carry a great selection. There is a local store here in Omaha, that I like.....Mangelsen's, where I purchase most of them.
This is a great, affordable gift for everyone on your list. Once you master this simple cable, you can tackle any pattern that uses them!
Go for it!
