Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool®
0.5 skeins = 239.0 yards (218.5 meters), 125 grams

This is such an easy and quick pattern! Very interesting shape, with simple stitches that are very textural. I’m biased because my friend designed it, but I loved knitting this pattern!

Using bulky yarn and 10.5 needles, the shawl came out more like a scarf, or cowl. A scowl, if you will (thanks, Lisa!). I love the size, it will be perfect under a winter coat.

I added an extra row of eyelets at the end, including three extra knitted rows after the third eyelet row. Then I bound off using a picot thusly: CO2, BO5. After binding off 5, you move the stitch from your right needle to the left needle, and then cable cast on 2.
