Sandy winter cable knit cowl pattern

Free Cable Knit Cowl Pattern

This easy-to-knit sandy cable cowl is a great pair to the knitted sandy winter cable hat that I finished last week. I hope you will like my cable knit cowl pattern, enjoy knitting it and will proudly wear it, or give it as a present to your beloved ones.

Cable knit cowl size:

Length: 46cm

Width: 25 cm

Gauge: 18 stitches = 4 inches

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit; p – purl

selvage stitch  Always slip the first stitch purlwise, work to the last stitch, purl the last stitch

Cable 4 Back (C4B): Slip 4 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in back of work, 4k from the left hand needle, 4k from the extra needle.

Cable 4 Front (C4F): Slip 4 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in front of work, 4k from the left hand needle, 4k from the extra needle.

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> 16 inch circular needles number 8 US (5 mm);

<> Alpacana Lanoso Yarn: 35% wool, 40% acrylic, 25% alpaca. Sandy color: 100 grams -130 m per skein.

<> Black fur pom poms.

Knitting the body of the cable cowl:

So lets start. Cast on 48 stitches for the cable knit cowl.

Row 1: selvage st (slip the first stitch), 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 38k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st (purl).

Row 2: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 36p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Rows 3-6: Repeat Rows 1 and 2.

Row 7: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, [4k, C4F] -3 times, 1k,1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Row 8: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 36p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Rows 9-14: Repeat Rows 1 and 2.

Row 15: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, [C4B, 4k] -3 times, 1k,1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st

Row 16: selvage st, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 36p, 1k, 1p, 1k, 1p, 1k, selvage st.

Now repeat Rows 1-16 – 3 more times. If you want longer cable cowl or make it double size, then just repeat Rows 1-16 as many times as you need.

Cut yarn leaving 50-60 cm tail. Now we are going to finish the cable cowl by using method of horizontal invisible seam. This method can be also used for sewing sweater, knitted jacket, etc.

Put both edges of knit cable cowl with right sides facing you. Use tapestry needle.

Working with piece that is farther away from you. First step is to insert the needle from right to left under the stitch (it reminds me a ‘gull’).

Next step is to insert the needle into the stich of the closest piece and exactly in the center of the ‘gull’, extract the needle in the middle of the next gull of the same closest piece.

Go back to father piece and repeat same steps.

At the end we can see an imitation of already knitted stitches.

Now decorate the cowl with the same kind of pom pom that was used for sandy winter knitted hat pattern with cables.

Please visit our shop section with a wide variety of fur pom poms.

It’s time to enjoy your set. I believe its really pretty.
