L'homme fatal

It's been winter this week! There is no snow yet, but the freezing cold nights have put white glitter on the trees. It's pretty. And cold. And since my husband managed to loose his favorite scarf last year, he needed something new for keeping his neck warm. He's really not that into scarves, though, so I figured a cowl would be a good substitute. And since he loves colors, I chose a lovely violet color for his cowl.

The cowl is worked as a ribbed tube, without increases or decreases. The cable pattern is inspired by gentlemen's socks, a subtle, beautiful pattern which twists and bends the ribbing just a little bit before letting it once again become ordinary ribbing. And since the cowl itself is quite straightforward, and since I have fallen in love with beautiful edges, I have added tubular edges on both sides. It looks professional, and the result makes it all worthwhile.
