A chunky cozy cowl
Striate originally appeared in Knit Now issue 95 (November 2018).

Designed for newcomers to colourwork, with bold colours and lines and a simple slip-stitch cable pattern that is fun and quick to knit. This cowl is very cozy in winter and easily fits under coats to keep out icy drafts.
