This unisex cowl is knitted on the bias in 2 colours, creating diagonal stripes. It's "splendid" because it knits up really quickly, looks fabulous and is extremely cosy. You could knit the cowl as wide or as long as you like, depending on how much yarn you have; the yardage mentioned in the pattern is just a guide. Gauge isn't really important either. This is a great pattern for fairly new knitters as it's an opportunity to learn a provisional cast on and Kitchener stitch (it's a seamless cowl, which is also pretty splendid). I have shared some helpful videos demonstrating a provisional cast on and Kitchener stitch on my blog, Just use the search function to locate the post entitled "Splendid Striped Cowl". Enjoy!
