I knit 2 Tudora Cowls (free pattern) for my girlfriend who loves to wear cowls in wintertime.
Each one took only one evening, and used only 93-103 yds worsted weight. The pattern calls for aran weight, but I got gauge with this yarn.
This one used 93 yds, knit as per pattern directions:
This one used 103 yards, see my notes at Ravelry about 'why':
The tan cowl is already blocked.
The wine cowl wasn't blocked when the photo was taken. It's on the blocking mat now.
