The Aegis Cowl by Sivia Harding is a
charming cable-y addition to the cowl repertoire. It is a quick, super
wearable garment topper featuring an intensely cabled front section
ornamented with beads that are strung onto the yarn before you cast on.
The pattern includes instructions for matching cuffs.
“Aegis” refers to an ancient protective shield that
was worn by Athena, among others. In ancient Greece, it is often
depicted as bearing a serpent-haired image. I think cables might
represent a slightly more civilized version. I hope wearing your Aegis
will empower you!
