A reversible cabled cowl in two lengths—the shorter one can be worn as a single loop and the longer can be wrapped twice. The reversible cables are worked just like traditional cables but in one by one rib.

Grafting in stockinette solves the problem of grafting opposite ends of a ribbed piece, which will always be visible misaligned by half a stitch. A twist is trapped within this stockinette section by arranging the stitches so that they’re offset by quarter of a round. The longer version is also twisted before grafting so that it’s easy to arrange in pleasing folds and has more interest when worn without double
