This super scrunchy cowl has a deeply-textured cable and seed stitch pattern that's completely reversible ...
... knit in the round from the bottom up.

The secret to its depth - and its reversibility - is a unique double cable stitch pattern. Fun!

Finished Size: 29" / 73.5 cm around by 10" / 25.5 cm deep.

To modify circumference, work more or fewer stitch repeats.
To modify depth, work more or fewer row repeats.
