Simple Cable Hair Tube Pattern

This is good as a close-fitting cowl to pull up over your nose in cold and windy weather or as a hair tube if, like me, you have longish hair and like to pull it back while keeping your head warm.

I used:
100g of Manos Silk Blend in Pisces
4.5mm 40cm circular needle
cable needle
stitch marker

Cast on 110 sts. and mark start with stitch-marker

Row 1: *P4 K6  *repeat to end
Row 2: *P4 C6B *repeat to end
Rows 3, 4, 5 and 6: Repeat Row 1

Repeat pattern 11 times then on the 12th repeat cast off after Row 3.

C6B - Slip 3 sts onto a cable needle and hold behind work. Knit 3 sts from main needle, then 3 sts off the cable needle.
