Here's the pattern -
Normally I don't do cables with multicolor yarns either. This one was a big enough cable and the yarn was darker shades I gambled and it worked out! I'm finished now except for buttons. DH is going to make me some so I'll share the FO when I get them.
Judy, its a short cowl. I may make a longer one at some point, but wanted to do as the pattern was written first.
