Chunky Cable Cowl Pattern

We have been busy bees over at Woolarium the last few months. Behind the scenes there has been much thinking, much planning, much knitting. But it has all been worth it - for today we launch the first of the patterns that we have been working on!

We're very proud to introduce you to our Chunky Cable Cowl pattern, exclusively designed by Leisl Shanley for Woolarium. Created with beginner knitters in mind, it's a fabulous introduction to cabling, and is sure to keep many a neck snug and warm in the colder months!


The cowl is knit up in Spud & Chloë Outer - a lovely super bulky weight yarn composed of superwash wool and organic cotton. Knit using 10mm needles, this is a quick, fun knit - making it ideal for Christmas gifts. The yarn is so deliciously soft that you'll want to make one for everybody on your Christmas list, especially with a cable pattern as easy as this one!

The pattern is free with every purchase of Spud & Chloë Outer. 2 skeins results in a cowl approximately 95cm long, however if you like your cowls to be longer we recommend using 3 skeins.


Our cowl is knit up in shade Rhino (7220), which is a gorgeous soft grey which works beautifully with dark winter coats. However, it took us ages to pick a colour for the sample, as there are so many lovely shades to choose from. You can view our range of Outer colours on the Woolarium website.


We've had so much fun creating this pattern, and hope you love it as much as we do. Many thanks to our model Kate (who has requested one of her own in payment!), and to Spud & Chloë for creating such a gorgeous yarn to work with. We're looking forward to seeing our customer's versions!


  1. Is the pattern available for purchase? I already have the yarn in my stash and this is the perfect project!

  2. Hi Natalie - the pattern is available on our website now, under Patterns. We hope you enjoy making it!
