The combination of cable patterning and a special yarn is magical! The Cable Fable Cowl design was inspired by the subtle heathers of the Harrisville Daylights and Nightshades. The whisper of color comes to life in the cable pattern especially after wet blocking. This fashionable, reversible, asymmetric piece is a “go-to” accessory for all your PNW outings.

Harrisville Daylights (white sample is color Lint), Harrisville Nightshades (black sample is color Last Call). 80% Cormo Wool/20% Wool. 250 yards/229 m per 3.5 oz/100 gram skein. Two skeins are needed to complete the project.
