This cowl is worked with 2 strands of Rowan Lima held together for a very dense, soft, and warm fabric. It features large, sculptural cables and a three-button closure. Use a double pointed needle or straight cable needle to work the cable sections. This helps to accommodate the large number of stitches being worked.
