  • 4 skeins of Purl Soho’s Understory, 50% baby alpaca, 25% baby yak, and 25% silk. We used the color Willow Bark. NOTE: We used 20 grams of our fourth skein, so if you want to only buy three skeins and make your cowl an inch or two narrower, that’ll be very nice, too. Or with four skeins, know that you’ll have enough yarn to make an even wider cowl, if you want, or a little bonus hat!
  • US 6, 40-inch circular needles


22 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in thorn stitch
