I used every bit of the yardage from the 3-ply Rambo/Nylon bulky yarn for this cowl. It measures 9" from top to bottom and 21" around. It is super soft and cuddly and I will enjoy wearing it with my jacket to keep my neck warm. Photos are so deceiving. The finished project looks nothing like the previous photo of the finished yarn!
The two skeins of singles yarn spun from fiber gifted by Dawn Ortega of Four Hens Fibers has been re-skeined and measured after wet finishing. The top skein measured 282 yds before washing and 276 after washing. The bottom skein measured 232 yds before washing and 228 yds after washing. I am very pleased with the result. I think the greater difference in the final yardage may have been because the top skein was wound a little tighter right off the bobbin than the bottom skein. I paid more attention to winding more slowly and it certainly paid off with the second skein.
