This cowl is knit in the round with no seaming. Directions are given for a 26” circumference cowl with a height of 13”. This pattern is easily adaptable. To change circumference you need only cast on more or fewer stitches in multiples of 12. Changes in height are achieved by working more or fewer vertical repeats of the lace chart.
Necessary yardage will vary with any sizing customization you choose to execute.
