This soft and squishy cowl is made up of large cables that are easy to work. The stitch pattern keeps it interesting and a worsted or aran weight yarn and US size 9 needles make it a quick project. It uses every last bit of yarn in one skein (210 yd or 192 m) of Malabrigo Merino Worsted, so plan accordingly!
