Arachnophobia Hat & Cowl pattern
Spiders are good and natural... but the only time they’re cute is on knitwear. This hat and cowl set might make you shudder with every cabled stitch, but it knits up fast. Designed by Emily Williams.

10/2013 - Originally published.
10/1/2020 - Updated layout. The original pattern was correct, but we took the opportunity to change the edging for the cowl from rolled to ribbed, and made the chart the same for both the cowl and the hat.
10/28/2020 - Whoops. Instructions for edging at top of cowl should also be ribbed, not rolled, like bottom.
