The yarn is from the very handy tub of Berocco Comfort Chunky, cream and black and is knit 30 stitches wide and garter stitch. It is the perfect yarn and stitch combination. Deep thick and sink your fingers into it good. That is what these do together. No twist to the cowl, as there is in the series one. Yet. That might change before they are given.
Thing two! This second cowl is going to be exactly the same, but for stripes in a deep rich gray.
