This pattern has two options of sizes created by using different weights of yarn and needle sizes.

The picture shows a blue cowl under the grey one. The blue cowl was knit out of worsted weight yarn on size US 7, 24” circular needles. The finished project is 7.5” tall.

The grey cowl was knit from Aran weight Malabrigo Mecha yarn is 6” tall. The Aran size uses almost all of the yarn so take time to check gauge or buy a second skein.

For you gauge hold outs, I am on the looser side of the knitting world.

The pattern is fun, quick, and easy -- it is an 8 row repeat that is easy to memorize.
