For the Simple/Easy Crafts Swap I found a super cute cabled, button up cowl on my partner's wist. I had a look around Ravelry and couldn't find anything that was quite right so I had a go at making it up myself. Since my partner has received I thought I'd go ahead and post the pattern up here in case anyone was interested Smiley It is the first time I've ever written a pattern so if anyone has any suggestions on how to improve it please do say!




What you need:
60m or 100g of a soft Super Chunky wool/yarn. I used Rico Design Fashion Tweed.
Size 9mm needles (13 US)
Large cable needle
3 buttons


Cast on 16 stitches using the cable cast on method.
Row 1: K1, P1, K1, P1, K8, K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 2: P1, K1, P1, K1, P8, P1, K1, P1, K1
Row 3: K1, P1, K1, P1, K8, K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 4: P1, K1, P1, K1, P8, P1, K1, P1, K1
Row 5: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, put next 3 stitches on cable needle and hold to the back, K3 stitches, place stitches on the cable needle back on the live needle and K these 3, K1, K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 6: P1, K1, P1, K1, P8, P1, K1, P1, K1

Repeat the set of rows 1-6 for 11 more times. For final set:
Row 1: K1, P1, K1, P1, K8, K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 2: P1, K1, P1, K1, P8, P1, K1, P1, K1
Row 3: K1, P1, K1, P1, K8, K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 4: P1, K1, P1, K1, P8, P1, K1, P1, K1
Row 5: K1, P1, YO, K1, P1, K4, YO, K4, K1, P1, YO, K1, P1 (Button Hole Row)
Row 6: P1, K1, P1, K1, P8, P1, K1, P1, K1

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.

That looks so straightforward, it's a really clear pattern thank you. I'm itching to try it now.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
