The flowing lines of cables pair nicely with garter and slipped stitch detail on Baby Cocktails' Talisker, creating “panels” around the cowl. Each panel flares out just a bit in contrast to the slipped stitches, and these scalloped edges are big and bold and cozy, not small and dainty. Knit in the round, the lines of the pattern are easy to see and to memorize after a repeat or two. You can adjust for depth or width and notes on how to do so are noted in the pattern.
