I used all but 3g of colour A from a skein which weighed 150g. You may need extra yarn if you work all 90 repeats of the pattern. If you run short and don’t want to splash out on an extra skein, just work one or two fewer pattern repeats. The cowl will still be long and snuggly as the yarn is quite stretchy and lofty! Or you could work the iCord in a separate colour - which takes about 20g of yarn.
