Our Cozy Cable Cowl is a knitting trifecta: it’s easy to make, knits up in no time, and uses our incredibly soft Lanecardate Feltro. It’s a surefire project when you need to quickly make something warm and beautiful for yourself or someone you love!

Inspired by our Chunky Cable Hat, the Cowl version uses a combination of three simple cables that never get boring. It also includes subtle shaping hidden among the cables for a flattering (and cozy!) fit.
