After knitting the Eclipse scarf I had a nice little stash of leftovers and decided they should be knit up into a simple cowl rather than languish in a cubby somewhere.

Eclipse Cowl is basically a recipe for using up some super bulky whether you already have some in your stash or plan to knit the scarf and know you will want to use your yarns up too like I did.

The photo at the bottom is the scarf and can be seen here:

Finished Measurements:
After gentle blocking: 57 cm/22.5” neck opening, 66 cm/26” bottom opening, 38 cm/15” height.
Before blocking: 8 stitches x 12 rounds in stocking stitch on 12 mm/US 17 needles.
