A great project for giving stranded knitting a try (no worries about fit!), the Godric Cowl requires approximately 410 yards of a main color (MC) and 100 yards each of three contrasting colorways (CC). Use a full skein of the main color, and any partial skeins of yarn you may have hanging around for the contrasting colors.
It is worked by first casting on stitches with a provisional cast on, and knitting in the round following color charts. The end of your knitting is then grafted to the cast on stitches using the Kitchener Stitch.
The cowl measures to 6.5" wide and 50" in circumference/length.
