The Indira Cowl is an elegant, tapered cowl featuring two unique double-braided cables, simple lace, and luxurious fisherman’s ribbing. The cowl is worked from side to side, beginning with a provisional cast on and knit to its full width before the cowl is grafted in pattern and the edging is worked. It's the perfect project for cable lovers, and the use of a mohair lace weight yarn as a marl gives the cowl the perfect halo. It is designed by Vanessa Smith.
