- This cowl is knit longways so you need to use a long circular needle. If you do not have a very long circular, you can knit the cowl in two pieces in half and then connect them.
- Also to get a more draped/stretched fabric, use the larger size needles. If you knit tight/tension, your cowl will be more firm instead.
- You will be knitting flat on a circular needle because the length of a circular needle is easier than trying to obtain on 2 straight needles. When you reach the end of the row, turn work and work pattern on the other side. You are not joining ends or knitting in the round.
