Giant Cabled Cowl using GIANT yarn and GIANT needles
I found some lovely big, chunky yarn the other day whilst out shopping. It was the perfect excuse to get my 20mm needles out too, at last. R refused to come into the room until I had put them safely away as I looked like some kind of yarn crazed vampire hunter.

If you too are itching for an excuse to use them and have a couple of hours to spare, try this pattern for a warm, cosy and above all enormous cowl. It is a cable pattern, and I doubt any of us have a cable needle this big, so check out my tutorial for cabling without a cable needle here: http://buttonsandpickles.com/cabling-without-a-cable-needle-how-to/

    Repeat these rows 4 times and loosely cast off.

  • Step 15

    Use the crochet hook to mattress stitch the cast on edge and the cast off edge together. I found it best to start on the end with the tail of yarn from the cast on and then match the stitches up from there.

    Weave in ends and plonk over your head. You will have the warmest, cabliest neck in all the land.
