Copy Cowl

While shopping at H&M one day- I saw a beautiful, yet simple cowl and decided to try to make it. It was the easiest cowl ever. 

Using a worsted weight yarn like Ilama or Silk (something very drapey) and size 5mm needles
CO 90 stitches (the taller you want the cowl the more you cast on)
Knit in garter stitch until the piece measures 24 inches
COff loosely
Sew together

Below is the copied cowl from H&M
