Grey Cabled Cowl

This chunky cabled cowl will keep your neck warm through the bitter cold days. The light grey color will match with everything- an essential piece to add to your wardrobe!
I used about one and half skeins of Loops & Threads Cozy Wool in Pewter. This is knit in the round with size 15 circular needles. 
Co 72 sts, and join without turning
Rows 1,2,3,5,6,7: knit
Row 4: *st 2 sts to dpn, hold to back, k2, k2 from dpn, k4; rep from * to end around
Row 8: *k4, sl 2 sts to dpn, hold to front, k2, k2 from dpn; rep from * to end around

Repeat rows 1-8 until desired length. After a row 3, bo loosely. 
Fasten off, and weave in any remaining ends. 
This all-over cabled pattern works up quickly and adds textural interest to a simple cowl. 
My finished cowl is 13" tall and 26" around. I like to do the cables without the dpn, so you could do whichever one makes you more comfortable. 
Hope you all enjoy this warm pattern!
Xoxo, Alyssa
