Needles
Size US 6 (4 mm) circular needles 24-32”/60-80 cm long, or size to obtain gauge.
(Optional) Size US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needles 24-
32”/60-80 cm long.
While gauge is not critical for this project, different gauge can affect the size and overall yardage.

Additional tools
Tapestry needle, waste yarn, crochet hook for Provisional CO.

Gauge

Notes
• The cowl is worked flat from a provisional cast-on and grafted to join the ends.
• Note that most knitters will require a different needle size to obtain the same gauge in single color as in colorwork. Use larger needle for mosaic stitch if needed.
