Keep all your options open ... Buy an extra ball. You will need some yarn to swatch or maybe you are a “tight” knitter? Running out of yarn can be a real pain. Getting more yarn, in your color, with the same dyelot can be impossible! Purchase an “insurance” ball. We're glad to accept returns on full, unused balls of yarn!

The Dewette cowl is worked in the round with an easy moss stitch. Simple row by row color changes keep things interesting. The pattern instructions for the lace border (added at the end) are both written out and charted.
