This PDF KNITTING PATTERN provides full instructions for how to create your own Keras Cowl. Keras (Greek for horn) is a long and narrow cowl that features two Staghorn cables that twist beautifully around strips of Stockinette stitch. The cowl is knit in the round from end to end and twisted before the two ends are joined. Simple techniques join with beautiful yarn here to create a striking piece.
