Gaga for Garter Cowl

Finishing up another cowl today, and figured I'd finally get the pattern on here.
This cowl is super squishy because of the vertical garter, soft, and so warm.  It's just perfect for the winters around here, and quick and easy to do.  Nevermind that it looks great!  So why not knit one up? :)

Gaga for Garter Cowl

Finished measurements: 14 inches tall, 11 inches wide.

Materials: Approximately 160 yards super bulky soft wool
                  Size US 11 16-inch circular needle, or whatever size needed to
                  obtain gauge.

Gauge: 10 sts is 4 inches in garter stitch

Loosely cast on 36 sts. 
Knit back and forth in garter stitch for 22 inches.
Loosely bind off, leaving a long tail, and seam bind off to cast on edge.

Note: you could also use a provisional cast on, and then finish by weaving the cast on and the last row using the garter Kitchener stitch, if you don’t like seaming.

Happy Knitting!
