This cowl is knit in the round on circular needles. To do the finishing work on this cowl you need to be comfortable stitching lining in place with a tapestry needle. There is also an optional step of crocheting into a line of stitching at the neckline to keep it from stretching out, this was done on the worsted weight example, and requires basic crochet skills.

Please note the yardage requirements listed in the pattern. There is a difference between the fingering and worsted yardages despite the fact that they are knit the exact same way. If you use a different gauge or yarn, which I encourage, make sure you have enough yarn or can easily buy more.
