The movement of the stitches mimics the motion of a cable, but instead comes from a creative placement of increases, decreases, and yarn over stitches.

The cowl is worked in the round in a single piece—no sewing or seaming is required. Points on both ends can be emphasized during blocking. Finished cowl can be worn with either edge facing up.
