Knit A Handmade Cable Cowl and Wristers 

Convert any shirt into a turtleneck with this cozy cowl. The stylish wristers make it easy to keep your fingers and wrists warm. Coordinate with style!

What’s Needed:

  • Knitting Loom: 8 Zippy Looms + 4 Zippy Corners, 36 pegs total
  • Yarn: Approx 180 yds (165m) super-bulky or jumbo yarn. (Sample uses Malabrigo Rasta in Plomo.)
  • Notions: Knitting tool, crochet hook, scissors, cable needle.

Special Stitches You'll Need

Skip With Yarn To Back (SL1WYB)

Skip 1 peg with yarn toward the back of the peg.

Cable 1 Over 2 Left (C1 Over 2 Left)

Skip peg 1 with yarn behind peg; knit peg 2 and peg 3. Place loop from peg 2 and peg 3 on cable needle; hold cable needle to the center of the knitting loom. Take working yarn to the front of peg 1. Knit peg 1. Move loop from peg 1 to peg 3. Place loops from cable needle on peg 1 and peg 2.

Gently tug on the loop on peg 2, then on the loop on peg 3— this removes yarn slack from the sts.



Cable 1 Over 2 Right (C1 Over 2 Right)

Place loops from peg 1 and peg 2 on cable needle; hold cable needle to the center of the knitting loom. Knit peg 3. Place loop from peg 3 on peg 1. Place sts from cable needle on peg 2 and peg 3. Knit peg 2, then knit peg 3. Gently tug on the loop on peg 2, then on the loop on peg 3—this removes yarn slack from the sts.
