Okay, so not so much going to be wearing this with the stripy shirt, or at least not this one, but you can get the idea. I finished it a few days ago and I am very happy with it, though I am still not sure if I am a cowl wearing person. Mostly I think because it's called a cowl, I think I am more likely to where a neck warmer thingy, but whatever.
It was so easy and fast, I used this pattern as a guide for the circumference and the length, though this one has two more full rounds of eight then the original has and I used a worsted yarn instead of a dk weight. I used size eight circular needles and almost three balls of Pure Merino Nuance in Ecologique.
