Note: This cowl can be made in any yarn at any gauge. If you prefer to use a different yarn weight, please use a needle size appropriate for the thickness of the yarn you are using. If you use a different yarn weight, you may also need to change the size of the cowl. To change the size of the cowl, cast on any even number of stitches. If you use a different yarn weight and / or change the size, please make sure you have enough extra yarn to do so.
