  • 1 skein Swans Island Bulky, undyed 85% Organic Merino and 15% Alpaca. Each skein is 130 yards/ 100 grams; approximately 130 yards required of Swans Island Bulky or another aran weight yarn. We used the color Oatmeal.
  • A US 10 (6.0 mm), 16-inch circular needle
  • Jumbo Locking Stitch Markers, 3 total (optional)

For a truly cozy cowl, here is another beautiful option:

  • 2 skeins of Jade Sapphire’s 8 Ply Cashmere, 100% Mongolian Cashmere. Each skein is 100 yards/ 55 grams; approximately 130 yards required.

16 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

19 inches in circumference and 12 inches from top to bottom

S2KPO: Slip 2 stitches together knitwise, knit 1, pass the 2 slipped stitches over the knit stitch. (This makes a centered double decrease.)

Now available in Italian with great thanks to a friend of The Purl Bee (aka icelandit on Ravelry).
