• The cowl is knit from the top down, in the round.
• The cowl needs approximately 180 yds of each color. You can make a second cowl with the rest of the yarn.
• If you would like to substitute yarns, I would suggest a Sport weight. Gerty is a very round and lofty yarn and plumps out quite a bit after washing. It knits up more like Sport weight.
• The easy slip stitch/mosaic pattern has you knitting only one color at a time.
