My DH’s brother (BIL) and his wife (SIL) both have birthdays this month. I wanted to make something special for them. Considering the single-digit temperatures we’ve had the last week, I think they’ll be well-received.
The fiber is from Ashford and it’s an 80/20 Merino and silk blend. It was slippery and a challenge, but I managed a decently consistent aran weight 2-ply yarn.
The pattern is here. I wanted to add buttons to my SIL’s cowl, so had to do a little modification to add button holes and a different border. My BIL’s cowl is shorter than the pattern indicated and has a ribbed edge.
Crocheted cables are so much fun - and I love the way they look!
