Looking for a high-impact low-investment gift? Well, I’m super-excited to present my second knitting design. This squishy fat-cabled cowl is the ultimate in quick little knits. Worked up in less than a skein of Malabrigo Chunky, it is a perfect first cable project. Whip out several for Christmas gifts and still have time to put your feet up and sip a cup of hot cocoa.
Seriously, y’all, this is a Fast Knit. Turn on Love Actually cast on, and you’ll be done before the credits roll. With 10 days left till Christmas, you have time to crank out several.
Awbrey was named for my mother-in-law, who just moved to Michigan from Alabama and asked for something cozy, bright, and warm. This cowl does the trick! It’s stretchy enough to pull over your head, but the cables draw it in close to the neck to keep the chill away.
I hope you like it!
