Cables & Stripes Cowl
This Cables & Stripes free crochet cowl pattern will keep you warm and can be worn in more than one way, with varying styles to suit your mood. It resembles cabled rope with horizontal stripes. It is also reversible with a mock knitted look for a different look.
You can wear this cowl up close to your neck giving you superior warmth. You can just let it hang around your neck as a fashionable accessory to your attire. You can also have it hug your neck and also hang loose. The wonderful quality of Cables & Stripes is that you can stripe to your heart’s content using a variety of colors.
