Interlocking columns of left- and right-twisting cables evoke the structure and movement of a cable-operated mountain railroad, which is where this cowl gets its fun name. The post-stitch cables reach upward from the bottom edge of the cowl, giving it rich allover texture.

The Funicular Cowl is a tubular design worked in rounds from bottom to top. The cable pattern is created by crossing groups of three Treble Crochet post stitches over one another. A round of Single Crochet gives the top edge a clean finish.
