worsted up to super-bulky weight
The cowl is worked throughout with multiple strands of yarns. The color combination is totally up to your choice!

Possible combinations:
four strands of bulky weight
one - two strands of super bulky and two strands of bulky weight
three strands of bulky weight and one worsted weight
one strand of super bulky and one strand of bulky and one strand of worsted

your fingers, your chosen yarn, perhaps a stitchminder, someone to tell you to stop before midnight :)

is determined by your choice of yarn and the size of your index finger. The fabric is extremely stretchable though. It should easily adapt to any size of head by previously stretching it with your hands before pulling over your head.
