Fiddleback Hat and Cowl
Fiddleback wood, or Flame Maple, is a beautiful wood grain often used to make fiddles and guitars. When I came across this particular cable pattern it reminded me of the lovely undulating wood grain of the back of a fiddle. This wide cowl starts with a short section of rib which flows right into the cabled pattern. While not technically reversible, the wrong side of the fabric is attractive in its own way. Worked in a fingering weight yarn, the cowl has a nice drape and would be a warm and fashionable way to keep the winter chill away, while the matching hat is worked in a watchcap style and will do nicely keeping your ears warm.
