my new design :: Awbrey

Looking for a high-impact low-investment gift? This squishy fat-cabled cowl is the ultimate in quick little knits. Worked up in less than a skein of Malabrigo Chunky, it is a perfect first cable project. Whip out several for Christmas gifts and still have time to put your feet up and sip a cup of hot cocoa.


Awbrey was named for my mother-in-law, who just moved to Michigan from Alabama and asked for something cozy, bright, and warm. This cowl does the trick! It’s stretchy enough to pull over your head, but the cables draw it in close to the neck to keep the chill away.
