This textured knit cowl will keep you comfy and cozy. The Cute As A Button yarn from Lion brand is super soft and fuzzy. This cowl uses stripes of a variation of the horseshoe cable and of stockinette stitch to make a design that is similar to the Vivian Crochet Cowl. With just one skein you can make a warm and wonderful winter accessory!

  1. Hi Jessie!
    I’m trying out this pattern, but as I am a relative knitting newbie, I’m not sure what “tw yo twice” means in rows 4 and 6?
    Thank you!
