The reversible stitch pattern allows you to wear the cowl any way you want without having to worry about the wrong side. On the one side of the cowl there is a flame-like stitch pattern and on the other side a textured rib pattern.

The cowl is worked in the round top down in one piece without seaming.

Circumference 40” / 100 cm along cast on edge, 44” / 112 cm along bind off edge, height 5.5” / 14 cm from cast on to bind off
Materials:
Worsted weight yarn, exactly 210 yards / 192 meters was used for the sample cowl, but I recommend having some more just in case (test knitters’ yardages varied between 210-230 yards / 190-210 meters)
