Even though the pattern is very stretchy, feedback from knitters is that the smallest version can be one less repeat, and the longest version can be one more repeat. Therefore:
Version A - which becomes a snug neck gaiter: Cast on 105 stitches (5 repeats).
Version C - Cast on 231 stitches (11 repeats). You will probably want to knit a couple of rows before joining!

Pattern revision coming soon.

Horizontal and vertical stripes echo the lines of Hurricane Ridge, forming a cowl that is simultaneously geometric and soft. The pattern includes three different size and shape options: a stand-up collar version that can be folded or pinned under a jacket or coat, a deep neck-hugging cowl, and a longer cowl that can be worn as is or wrapped twice around your neck.

Skill level: Intermediate; Provisional cast-on and grafting. (Alternative cast-on and bind-off are suggested.)

Hope you enjoy knitting it as much as I did.
