Earlier this year I shared the free pattern for this Murphy Slouchy Beanie. It’s been one of my favorite patterns that I’ve made to date, so I was pretty excited when my dear aunt asked me to make 3 of them for herself and her 2 sisters. I chose a super soft acrylic yarn to make the beanies but was just shy of completing the hats with just one skein (yarn chicken is a favorite past time of mine, and I lose more often then not). LOL!
Since I had almost a whole skein left after completing the beanies, I immediately started brainstorming a pattern I could make quickly with the remaining yarn. Hence, this Cozy Cabled Cowl was born.
It’s the same design pattern I used on the Murphy Slouchy, so you can make the set with just 2 skeins of yarn as well!
The most complex part of this cowl is the cabling, but if you’ve ever worked in post stitches before, you should have no issue making this cowl!
If you want to swatch it out but not have to frog all your hard work, check out this Easy Cabled Mug Cozy pattern! This cowl is worked almost exactly the same just longer with a different amount of normal stitches worked amongst the post stitches.
Of course, you could always check out my blog post on this Cozy Cabled Cowl here for additional help as well. 🙂

Thats all there is to it! I hope you enjoyed making this delightful Cozy Cabled Cowl as much as I did. 🙂
Super cute pattern, thanks! I’m curious though, row 2 says27 stitches at the end but the number of stitches in the pattern equals29 stitches. Can you clarify?
Aww thanks so much Katie! I’m wondering if you’re maybe counting the starting ch2 in your count? I keep getting 27 when I add it all up. I did make a recent correction to row 5 that did have a typo adding up to 29, but don’t see the same error on row 2. Either way, you should end with 27 completed stitches for each row of the Cowl. Hope this helps! 🙂
It’s not adding up for me. Row 4 has at the end 27 stitches but row 5 needs 29 stitches to complete.
Thanks so much for reaching out! I totally missed a typo when testing and proofing the pattern (there was an extra “ch 2, dc 2” written in before the last simple cable). Thank you so much for bringing it to my attention! It has been corrected which should help clear things up. 🙂
