Finished Size Approximately:

Notes:

I was uncertain when I began making this cowl whether or not I would add a border at the end, so I fastened off the yarn at each color change. Because of the frequency of color changes, this left me with quite a few ends to weave in. I weaved in my ends as I went in order to avoid being left with a large amount of weaving at the end of this project. You may, however, choose to ignore the instructions to fasten off at each color change and instead carry the yarn up the side as you work and hide it with the border.
