Wow. I’m still amazed by how much this pattern looks like cables. This was one of the most satisfying projects I’ve ever done and here’s why:
1. The pattern was easy to memorize (it’s just knits and purls!!)
2. I could knit this in front of the TV without looking at my knitting (the first time I’ve ever been able to do this)
3. I didn’t mess up once. (The first time this has ever happened.)
I’m so glad I discovered this stitch pattern on Knitting Unlimited! I can see turning this into a longer infinity scarf, fingerless gloves, maybe even a bag or pillow cover….
I think you’ll be addicted to this stitch pattern too as you knit through each row, you’ll start to see how deceptively simple it is. This cowl knitting pattern pairs nicely with a bold merlot, and your favorite binge-worthy show on Netflix.
