This cowl has a great fit, a tailored double-hem, and wonderful texture. The large, sculptural cables contrast beautifully with a delicate lace mesh. Two versions of lace mesh have been provided: Version 1 (shown in our Wool Socks red) has mesh patterning worked on every round. Version 2 (shown in Nest brown) is the same mesh pattern, but with a free round of knitting in between each patterned round. Charts for both have been provided – knitter’s preference!
