What I love about knitting is how many different ways there are to do certain techniques — the cowl Diamanthea takes knitting through the back loop to the next level!
Those graceful lines do not look like cables, and yet they are! Knitting through the back loop turns knit stitches into sleek columns. The cables involve twisted stitches and that is the secret behind the diamond motifs in this cowl!
Just managed to take an outdoor photo before it started to rain again:
The size is easy to adjust, you can cast on more or less repeats or work more rows. The pattern also includes a photo tutorial on how to cross 1 stitch with a removable stitch marker. Which makes the 1-over-2 cable less fiddly and the stitch that is crossed easier to retrieve!
Pattern includes written instructions and a chart.
