Pattern Notes

Pattern is written for an adult medium size.

The circumference of the cowl is adjustable by subtracting or adding multiples of 2 fdsc sts.

To make the cowl in a smaller width, first eliminate Row 7, then Row 8 if desired.

To make cowl wider, repeat Rows 6 and 8, and/or repeat Row 13 (comprising top and bottom edges) to desired width.

After the beginning turn, all rows are worked in the round and joined using a slip stitch.
