The Cable Cowl is a long, loopable confection. It's knitted holding 2 yarns together - our uber-luscious Mohair Silk, and our all-silk 5/1 Singles. This gives the fabric weight and drape, and features the most heavenly halo on earth. You cast on many-many stitches onto a long circular needle, and then there's only about 6" of knitting depth before you're done! It's a soft, lovely, elegant piece that will keep you warm and snuggly.
