Here’s the stitch diagram and instructions for the mock cable. To make this lovely cowl, you’ll only need 1 ball of Classic Shades Frenzy and size US10 [6mm] needles. Make 2 panels and sew them together along the garter stitch ridges.
Cast on 32 sts and knit the ribbing first as follows:
Row 4: K4, p6, k2tog, p3, yo, p3, k4.
Row 1 (WS): K4, [p2, k2, p2, k2, p2, k4] twice.
Row 5: K8, yo, k3, K2togtw, k9.
Row 2 (RS): Knit. Rows 3 & 4: Rep Rows 1 and 2. Row 5: Rep Row 1 Then work your way across the stitch diagram (or text instructions below) repeating the stitches and rows in the blue box. Work until you have 4 complete repeats of Rows 1-10 (4 mock cables) and then work 1 plain knit row and then rows 1-4 of the ribbing again. Cast off loosely. Next I’ll explain how to take this one-ball project and make it into a 2-ball project.
Row 1: K4, yo, k3, K2togtw, k13. Row 2: K4, p8, k2tog, p3, yo, p1, k4. Row 3: K6, yo, k3, K2togtw, k11.
Row 6: K4, p4, k2tog, p3, yo, p5, k4. Row 7: K10, yo,20 k3, K2togtw, k7. Row 8: K4, p2, 18 k2tog, p3, yo, p7, k4. Row 9: K12, yo, k3, K2togtw, k5. 16 Row 10: K4, k2tog, p3, yo, p9, k4. 14 Rows 11-20: Repeat rows 1-10. 12 Special Abbreviation:
Knit 2 together 10with a twist (K2togtw): Knit 2 together by inserting RH needle in front leg of first st and then in back8 leg of 2nd st, then knit, drawing up loop between strands as usual. 6
