This simple and handsome cowl is knit out a single skein of super-bulky yarn, giving a cozy and plush fabric to ward off chills. It is reversible inside out as well as upside down.

Finished measurements: 21 inches circumference by 9 inches high, after blocking.

For the cast on, I used the chain (crochet) cast on.
For the bind off, I used a US 11/8 mm needle.
I used all but about 3 yards of one skein of Berocco Peruvia Quick; you might want to have an extra skein, just in case.

This is my first published pattern, and I would welcome any constructive feedback.
