Inspired by the large, twisting redwoods in the forests around Humboldt, California, this cowl's main feature is a chunky cable that winds its way around the neck.
The Humboldt cowl is perfect for a quick, cuddly, cold weather knit fix. The design gives the illusion of a scarf that has been delicately wrapped around your neck. It fits well under a jacket without adding the bulk that a long chunky scarf would.
If you're a beginner and unsure of knitting a cable pattern, this pattern will help you learn. It's very easy and explained in plain english.
NOTE: CO is 36 stitches. You will have a 12 stitch garter on either side of the cable. Updated PDF for download is coming soon.
