Fable Cowls

Fable = fake cable.  Looks like a cable but no cabling and it is much flatter.  There are three items using this stitch.  The Fable Scarf which is knitted flat and two Fable Neck Cowls knitted in the round. Your pattern will include all 3. The scarf is knitted flat and the cowls in the round.  

I rate these as moderate.
