Thin cables running across the soft textured surface keep this cowl comfortably around neck, while its height is enough to cover one's head and ears in cold winds.
The cowl is easy to knit and finish, it is worked in the round on circular needles as one piece.
The cowl requires four 50 g balls of DK weight yarn, but naturally, it can be worked in lighter and heavier yarn weights just as well.
The pattern is available on Ravelry.
The sample is knitted in Schachenmayr Nomotta's Extra Merino, shade no. 56. Because of its loose twist, needles sometimes get lost between the threads, but that also makes the yarn so wonderfully soft and fluffy. It is also a very convenient centre-pull ball.
