Top off your favorite fisherman’s sweater (like my Fisherman’s Daughter here) … or your favorite tee shirt … with this cozy neck warmer. The brioche waffle rib is reversible and dense, and the cable edging allows the cowl to hug the neckline beautifully.

Fisherman’s Cowl is worked flat in one piece from side to side, and grafted or seamed to form a cylinder - wider at the base, narrower at the top.
This shaping doesn’t require short rows, but is a natural result of the difference in row gauges between the waffle stitch and the cable.

Sunday Knits 5 ply (worsted) in Nirvana (92% merino 8% cashmere), Eden (100% merino), Brigadoon (100% merino tweed) or Angelic (75% merino 25% angora); 125 m / 137 yd per 50 g / 1-3⁄4 oz skein: 2 skeins.
Substitute any light worsted weight yarn that works nicely to gauge.

Cable needle or double pointed needle; tapestry needle.

Cables, slip-stitch (brioche-style) waffle stitch, provisional cast on, grafting.
