Chunky Aran cable cowl: This knitting pattern creates a textured cowl which works doubly hard as a cosy headband. Knit seamlessly in the round; the cowl is quick to knit up, and the cabling is straightforward and suitable for those new to Aran knitting.

The pattern details how the headband/neckwarmer can be modified in width and length. Gauge is not hugely important with this project. I would suggest knitting it with a slightly smaller needle than your yarn calls for if you tend to have a loose gauge, as some stretch is needed. The yarn I used was Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica; the pattern would work well with a similarly chunky yarn. Needle size needed: 5.5mm and 6mm circular needles.

As a knitter from the Aran Islands, I'm delighted to be bringing my own patterns here, combining traditional motifs with more modern yarns and techniques.

Thanks for looking: feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
