WIP - cabled cowl
I'm in love! The yarn is James C. Brett marble chunky in colorway 6. Pattern is a friends. If she puts it on Rav I'll share the link.

One more cable cross I think then bind off and add buttons.

Jan, that's beautiful! The pattern and the yarn work so well together. Usually I think cables and multicolors fight for dominance but you persuaded them to cooperate. Impressive. You really do such lovely knitting, always.

Oh that's so pretty! Hope your friend uploads it. I've never been able to get good cabling with anything other than solid colored worsted weight yarn. I do a lot of

That cable really pops out...beautiful yarn!
Does the cowl hang low or wrap the neck?

Beautiful cowl! The cable looks so good against the garter stitch edging. That's a great combination of stitches and color.

Thanks everyone!

Here's the pattern -
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...ky-cabled-cowl

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.

Awww, I was hoping it was going to be a free pattern, I'll still get it one of these days. But right now I have three big projects going (one's almost done) and two or three more planed. Can't wait to see your FO.

Will those buttons be made out of wood? If so, have you figured out what species and shape?

It is so beautiful Jan. Really looking forward to pictures of the FO.
