Oct 31, 2013 - uploaded an improved version…updated format layout addressed some clarity/grammar issues.

I really like the way that this stands up on its own…Tip: if you want yours to stand, you need to get nice tight stitches when swatching :)

Overview:
Knit in the round bottom up. A band of eyelet wreaths edged in garter followed by five wide ribbing panels, topped with garter stitch and crocheted picot scallops - you can skip the crochet edging and do the same intro eyelet bands as the ‘outro’ if you choose.

Aprox. 110 yds (100 m) of chunky yarn (6 - 7 wpi) ~Sample used 1 ball (110 yds/100 m/100 g) Louisa Harding Hulda (Chunky) in brown.

If you do not crochet but want to keep the look of the sample, there is a lovely knitted edging posted in the projects page for this pattern - karendidit’s Red Castle Cowl (her photo is also featured here) - which gives directions for a perfect knitted version.
