Instructions are given for two different widths (small and medium) and two different heights (short and tall), which makes the pattern easy to customize. Both written and charted instructions are provided.
The original sample (first photo) is a tall version of the small cowl.
- 6 (small size) to 8 (medium size) stitch markers
- Tapestry needle to weave in ends
Each chart repeat uses two stitch markers. Knitters who can read their own knitting will likely only need 3 (small size) - 4 (medium size) stitch markers.

Although not necessary, the cowl will knit up much faster if you can cable without a cable needle. Links to video tutorials are provided.
Testers rated the pattern difficulty as Advanced Beginner / Intermediate.
The sample was made with IndigoDragonfly CaribouBaa (100% Merino, Superwash) in colorway Tardis. For substitutions, a wool or wool blend with good stitch definition is recommended.
