This is a soft and cosy cowl which caresses the neck. The yarn is beautiful. It was a pleasure to knit with.

Every pattern repeat contains 16 stitches and 6 rows so you can easily add or leave out repeats if you want changes in length and width or if you use another type of yarn.

I cast on 160 sts for 10 pattern repeats (in the width) knitted on a 40 cm, 4.5 circular needle. Certainly it’s possible to use DPNs but I don’t feel comfortable with them with this amount of stitches.

All in all I knitted 12 repeats of the pattern from top to bottom thus I needed a tiny little bit of a second skein. I would recommend doing just 11 repeats and getting by with only one skein.
