Cashmere Merino Cowl- FO

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Karabella Boise, 50% cashmere, 50% merino
Yardage: 50g/163yds per ball. One ball used.
Needles: US 5 addi turbo 16" circulars
Gauge: 6.25 st/in

I knit this thinking it would be a nice alternative to wearing scarves in the winter. I got the yarn on sale (it was still pretty expensive) and thought, "what could I make out of one skein of this?". So I decided to make a cowl. I cast on 112 stitches and k3,p1 for 5 rows. Then I knit for 7 inches or so before finishing with another 5 rows of k3,p1 ribbing. This thing feels delicious against my neck, I absolutely love it!
