Designed and knit by Cathy Campbell

Description:  Soft cables are the focus of this luxurious cowl.  This design is broken up into three parts:  the Bottom Ribbing, the Cable Pattern and the Top Ribbing.  Because of the large gauge and therefore larger gaps between stitches, there are no button holes to make.   The buttons are simply pushed through the gaps between the stitches.
