NOTE:

This cowl is with 2 strands of yarn at the same time, knit longways so you need to use a long circular needle. If you do not have a very long circular, you can knit the cowl in two pieces in half and then connect them or if you have a long enough cable you can either knit it flat and then connect the side or knit entire piece in the round.

Also to get a more draped/stretched fabric, use the larger size needles. If you knit tight/tension, your cowl will be more firm instead.
