This cowl can be knit in any type of yarn . You may need to add or decrease stitches when altering yarn.
To determine the number of stitches needed knit a swatch of 10 stitches with the yarn chosen and measure the width. The scarf should be at least 17 inches wide. Multiply the number of stitches by the measurement until you reach at least 17 inches. For example if your swatch measures 2 inches. You will need 90 stitches plus 2 to equal the measurements because the stitch repeat needs 10 stitches.
