Carniolan is a squishy cowl named after a honey bee.
The cowl can easily be customized to the knitter’s
tastes for length, depth and weight.
The pattern is written for bulky weight yarn and
finished dimensions are given for that weight.
Soft bulky yarn works best rather than dense bulky.
Suggestions for other yarn weights as follows:
Dk weight yarn will need approximately 420 yards.

Worsted weight yarn will need approximately 350 yards.
Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows over 4”(10cm) of pattern with US size 8 (5.0mm) knitting needles.
