This is a simple cowl. I cast on 132 stitches on a size 3 US, 3.25 mm Chiagoo. Did 1 inch 2X2 rib, 6 inches stockinet in the round and 1 inch 2X2 rib to finish. So it is 8 inches tall total. Did a stretchy bind off. It will keep my neck warm. I have been looking for a way to use this baby alpaca lace yarn.

Cascade 100% baby alpaca lace color Provence held with Knit Picks undyed wool nylon blend sock weight yarn

Thanks for looking.

How many yards did you use of each? It's so pretty!
Thank you.
I used about half of each so approximately 231 yards of the fingering yarn and approximately 218 yards of the lace weight. I had 100 grams of fingering and 50 grams of the lace weight. My cowl weighs 55 grams. I can't weigh what is left of the yarn as I have started a hat to go with it. I feel I have enough for a hat too tho.

Again thanks for the lovely comments. It is blocked and ready to wear. We are having unseasonably mild weather for here so hopefully I can finish the hat too before a big storm comes.
