Introducing a beautiful, lightweight cowl that is perfect for the changing weather, the Corner Cable Drape Cowl.
Not only is this a classic looking piece to add to your wardrobe, your eyes will be drawn to the details in the cables. The beautiful color changes of Lion Brand Mandala yarn perfectly accentuates the cowls design.
The cowl is made as one flat piece that creates a simple cable design that aligns the top and bottom edge of the cowl. However, If crocheting cables intimidate you, this is a good beginner project so give it a try. After your main cowl is made you will sew the edges partially together to create the “drape” in the cowl.
I loved crocheting the cowl in a light weight (#3) yarn. By using the finer yarn you create a nice, light fabric that keeps the chill off but doesn’t keep you too warm on spring days. Due to the colors naturally changing in the Mandala yarn it results in you getting two completely different colorful looks to your cowl. Just turn and rotate the front and back of the cowl which leaves you with two different colorways.
The Corner Cable Drape Cowl is made as One Size Fits Most and is a loose fitting garment that really does fit most. I recommend using Lion Brand Mandala yarn, it only takes 1 ball; however, the cowl can be made in any light weight (#3) yarn. Use a crochet H (5 mm) hook, or whatever size meets gauge, this will ensure a proper final size. Some other helpful notions are (1) yarn needle, (2) scissors and (3) a measuring tape.
