Actual size
To fit child (teen, woman, plus woman)
neck circumference 22 (30, 38, 42) ins
length 12 (14, 16, 17) ins
(cabled cowl, in DK and aran only, has slightly different circumferences)

Fingering: 21 sts to 4 ins DK: 19 sts to 4 ins Aran: 16 sts to 4 ins
All over pattern after washing and drying – the number of rows per inch varies with the pattern. Adjust needle size if necessary to get the right stitch tension. Cable tension is measured over stocking stitch.

The patterns will work with a large variety of yarn thicknesses and fibres. Bouncy yarns will give cowls which will tend to stand up more, while drapy yarns will give cowls which drape! Cowls can be worn in many ways. With the exception of the cabled cowls, these are all sized to go twice round the neck, or once round the neck and once over the head. Or wear them loose round the neck or over the head. They also look good with a shawl pin! Mine are from Romi – www.designsbyromi.com
