Day 117 and the Wrap
A cowl can be joined in many different ways. Instead of just putting the ends of a rectangle together, try joining an end to an edge for this very classy pointed collar.
If you're not sure how long to make your rectangle, it's actually a really easy formula.
Length of the rectangle minus width needs to equal the target circumference (I think 22 inches is a good number to aim for so that it comfortably stretches over your head).
For this exact scarf, I used size 15 needles, 25 stitches and knit in moss stitch for about 36 inches before sewing. The yarn I used I don't think is being made any more (Jaeger Michelle) but it was a light worsted with a halo.
