We are thrilled to announce the 1st of Nutmeg's fall 2015 pattern series! Sassenach is a wonderfully slouchy cowl that can be doubled up to be extra warm or worn long for a great fall look. This pattern is a great intro to cables, as it utilizes only one type of cabling technique. It produces a beautiful, classic double plaited pattern that recalls the Scottish Highlands of Outlander’s fierce heroine, Claire Fraser.
2 Skeins Bulky Weight yarn, 100 yds. each (pictured is one of Camellia Fiber Co.’s alpaca/merino wool blend) I recommend a lovely solid or slightly heathered yarn for this project to highlight the strong cable motif, but feel free to choose your favorite!
23 stitches and 19 rows = 4” stockinette with US 10 (6.0 mm) needles
- US 9 and US 10, 24” circular needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)
- Cable Needle
- Craft Needle (for weaving in ends)
