Intermediate (knitting in the round, specialty stitches)

This cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up. Height can be modified by knitting more Diagonal Rib repeats or more Winter Crocus Motif repeats as desired. Circumference can be modified by adjusting cast on number by a multiple of 10 stitches (the width of the Winter Crocus Motif). Each 10 stitch increment is approximately 2”/5 cm.
