Notes

As others have done, I’m going to make this in fingering weight scraps. Yarns for this (and the starting weights) include:

02-07-2021

Setup & Section 1: Colour A is dark blue, colour B is Sterling Ridge.

Section 2: Colour A is dark blue, colour C is smallest quantity of Koigu.

Section 3: Colour A becomes that Koigu, colour B becomes the blue Sundara.

04-07-2021

Section 4: Colour A is the Koigu (on to the second lot of it, which is almost identical to the first tiny ball) and colour C is the purple Sundara. (Ignoring where it calls for colour B for a single row.)

09-07-2021

Section 5: Colour B is now the purple Sundara, and C is the blue Artfil.

13-07-2021

Section 6: Colour B is the blue, colour C is the light brown Tanis.

Section 7: Colour B is the blue, colour C is the dark Koigu (still the second lot of it). Not sure about colour A yet.

Final amounts updated in the project details -- total of 425.4 yards of fingering weight. Unblocked and unseamed, the cowl is about 21” deep and 23” across the neck edge. Hopefully the blocking will stop this from wanting to roll quite so much -- the unfortunate effect of so much stockinette, especially on the bias…
