Quetzal Cowl

 I'm very excited to show off my Quetzal Cowl, which is in the new Winter Issue of Knitscene!
The cowl is worked flat like a scarf. It uses a pretty simple cable and lace pattern. It's a great pattern for trying cabling without a cable needle. Ditching the cable needle made this piece super quick to knit.
After blocking, a small seam is added to turn it into a cowl. You can wear this thing a variety of ways!
I think it would also look cute with the seam along one shoulder and then wrapped around the neck one time. the corners would then fall in the front and back, making it shawl-like.

The sample is knit out of Canopy Fingering from The Fibre Company. The yarn is an alpaca/merino/bamboo blend and is fantastic to work with. I would love to make a whole sweater out of that yarn. Very nice stuff!

Hope you enjoy the new pattern! I'll be back later this week to talk about some of my favorites from the new issue of Knitscene.
