Those tempting bundles of mini skeins can be hard to resist, and this pattern was designed to use up every bit of yarn when you knit the larger-sized cowl. You can play around with the color order to create fun combinations. To conserve yarn at cast-on, we recommend using the crochet cast-on method, which is usually a provisional method; when used to cast on with your working yarn, this method will not only save an yarn usage, it will match your bind-off nearly perfectly, too!
