So here is the pattern:
What you need:
1 skein of Red Heart Boutique Treasures, I used the color way Abstract (151 yards, 70% acrylic, 30% wool, worsted weight.)
Size 13-15 circular knitting needles, less than 30” cables
Two place markers
CO- Cast On
BO- Bind off
PM- Place Marker
YB- Yarn Back (Bring the yarn to the back of the needles like when you knit)
YF- Yarn Front (Bring yarn to the front of the needles like when you purl)
* - Repeat pattern from *
CO 70 st, PM, CO 69
Join in the round with one K stitch; be careful not to twist.
Round 1: *YF, S 1 purlwise, YB, K1, repeat from * around (end with a K stitch)
Round 2: *YF, S1 purlwise, YB, K1, repeat from * around (end with a slip stitch
Round 3: * K1, YF, S1 purlwise, YB, K1, repeat from * around
Repeat rounds 2 and 3 until your cowl is five inches wide (or however wide you want it to be).
BO loosely, block if you wish.
EDIT: I finally got around to measuring the needle size and it's US 15. Also you need only about 120 yards because I had 30 leftover.
