Instructions are charted and written in a percentage checklist style which makes it easy to track your progress. You will need approximately 360 to 400 yds (329 to 366 m) of a sport weight yarn. Less yarn will yield a more shallow cowl, still perfectly fine. More yarn will yield a deeper cowl. The pattern is easily adaptable if you want to make it longer–simply add more stitch pattern repeats.  The lace/texture pattern is impressive to look at and simple to work. It is easily memorized so you can focus on the beautiful color. Size is 14” deep and 34” circumference.
