Whether it’s an early morning stroll to awaken the senses, or a quiet eventide contemplation, a winter walk along the beach is always a good opportunity to take stock and hit refresh. The crisp fresh air keeps us in the moment, while gazing toward the horizon remind us to hold on to our dreams for tomorrow.
The Sandwaves Cowl is the perfect companion for your winter walks. Deep ribbing at the top and bottom mimics the long shadows of winter and winding cables form waves like the traces left in soft sand at low tide.
The cowl is worked in the round with chunky yarn, making this a quick knit. Good for the advanced beginner, this would be a nice introduction to cable knitting. Choose a smooth yarn in a solid or semi-solid colour to best show off the texture.
The pattern uses only 2 cable stitches, the 2/2 LPC (2 over 2 left purl cross) and the 2/2 RPC (2 over 2 right purl cross) and these can easily be done without the use of a cable needle. Video tutorials can be found here and are also linked in the pattern notes.
