Tah-Dah! Our GAP-Tastic Cowl (pattern FREE via Ravelry) was a fantastic success! We made it with 3 skeins of Malabrigo Chunky (colour Intenso) and 8mm-36" circular needles.
Because we took the needle size down a bit to accommodate the yarn, we cast on an extra 10 stitches (total cast on 141 sts). I think it would be absolutely sumptuous made with Misti Alpaca Chunky (3 skeins, 8mm needles)
If you don't want to shell out for the fancy yarn, you could also make this cowl using any of the following:
- 3 skeins of Berroco Peruvia Quick ($32.91) & 9mm-29" circular needles
- 3 skeins of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky ($29.91) & 8mm-29" circular needles
- 4 skeins of Berroco Vintage Chunky ($31.88) & 6.5mm to 7mm-29" circular needles (cast on 151 sts)
For a narrower, shorter cowl, you can get away with using 2 skeins and casting on 111 sts.
