The Zigzag Cable Cowl by Lisa R. Myers is a simple one hank project. This cowl is the perfect size to wear under a coat to keep your neck warm without lots of bulk. This pattern is worked in the round without a seam and no pesky ends to weave in, just your cast on tail and bind off tail. The zigzag is created by increases, decreases, and a quick four stitch cable every 4 rows. Clara by Manos Del Uruguay is a light and lofty sport-weight yarn with a hefty 385 yards per skein. The 100% superwash merino fiber takes dye beautifully (in addition to being beautifully easy to care for). Machine wash or hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry. Manos Del Uruguay is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization. The hands of Uruguay is a non profit organization which assembles women in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. The aim of the organization is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women. Knitters will also need a size 4.5 mm (US 7) 16″ circular knitting needle. Photographed in Obispo.
