The pattern has two sizes given and two different weights. So you can knit a small cowl that will pull over your head and give a snug, tuck-into-your-coat cowl (like the London Cowling) if you knit the smallest size in the DK. The larger one gives a cowl that you can twist and wrap round twice for warmth / effect. The Chunky yarn will give cowls that are slightly bigger in circumference than the DK ones, measurements given below. We have knitted the cowl in our DK yarn – you will need 2 x 50g balls for the small size and 4 x 50g balls for the large. We have also knitted it in Town End Pure Natural Aran Alpaca and you will need 3 50g balls for the small size. The pattern is easily adapted for any yarn if you knit a tension square first.
Finished measurements: For the DK (and our Aran version) cowl: 58(116)cm / 23(45¾)” circumference, depth 31cm / 12¼”.
