I knew that I wanted this cowl to fit a little snug so it would stay in place and not slide down my shoulders, and I could wear it around my neck too. I like to have options, depending on what mood I’m in. I’m 5’9” with a 35” bust. I made the 34” since I wanted it a little on the snug side.

The height of your cowl depends on your style and height, so this varies, definitely take this into consideration when purchasing yarn.
