COOL STRIPES COWL

 SIZES:  Woman’s average and large

NOTES: 
1.    Read instructions through before beginning.
2.    For the M1, make one I did it two ways, a yarn over and this one: http://www.lionbrand.com/how-to-knit-increasing-between  You choose which one you prefer.  The yarn over makes a bit larger hole.  I like the hole as a decorative element.
3.    The first picture is Red Heart Super Saver color Cool Stripe.  Second picture is RHSS Monet.
4.    For the bind off I tried both binding off in seed stitch and in knit.  My preference was the knit.  Use whichever you like best.
