Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Beuatiful and fast to work up, great texture.
Create this gorgeous cowl in an afternoon using large needles and a single 90yd (82 m) hank of Super Bulky - Malabrigo 'Rasta' yarn . Two textures create a lightly undulating edge and standing collar. Simple to memorize three stitch/two row repeat. Knit flat and joined with a single short seam.

**yardage is very close (3.5 yds left over after tassel for me) if you do not knit close to gauge you may need a little more yarn!


7.75 stitches and 11 rows = 4" {10 cm} square) in stockinette .

*Gauge is not critical, but will affect size and yardage!
I used all but 3.5 yds after tassel.
