Sea Anemone Cowl
A few notes about casting on and circumference on this pattern:
The stated circumference is at the widest point of the cowl, but at certain parts, the circumference is smaller. The way the cowl is structured, you cast on, work for a bit, double your stitches, work for a bit, halve your stitches, work for a bit, double your stitches, work for a bit, halve your stitches again, work for a bit, and bind off. So, the majority of the cowl is the largest circumference, but it goes in and out. As it’s knitted at a loose gauge, the circumference is kind of dynamic - the wider parts pull the narrower parts out…
Also, as the pattern states, make sure to do your cast-on super loosely! If you’re having a hard time getting it loose, a Long-Tail CO instead of the Icord CO would be just fine.
