Needles 
Size US 6 (4 mm) circular needles 24-32”/60-80 cm long, or size to obtain gauge. 
(Optional) Size US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needles 24-32”/60-80 cm long. 
While gauge is not critical for this project, different gauge can affect the size and overall yardage.

Additional tools 
Tapestry needle, waste yarn, crochet hook for Provisional CO.

Gauge 
20 stitches and 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) on size US 6 (4 mm) needles in Garter Stitch, after blocking.

Notes 
• The cowl is worked flat from a provisional cast-on and grafted to join the ends. 
• Note that most knitters will require a different needle size to obtain the same gauge in single color as in colorwork. Use larger needle for mosaic stitch if needed.
