Hey hey and happy Thursday! Remember a few weeks back when I posted the Minty Morning Headband? Well what a difference a gauge makes! Today I’m actually going to be using the exact same pattern as the Minty Morning Headband, but with superbulky yarn to make a cowl!
The Cora Cowl features edge cables, and a big beautiful braided cable right in the middle. I love the effect of cabled edges. I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick yarn, and I’m really happy with the way it turned out. The texture of the yarn is so soft, and the cable pattern is my new go to! The Cora Cowl is knit flat, and seamed. You can make it to any length you want.
