  1. Hey Kersti, your Knitmas Cowl is quite nice. What needle size did you use for it? I’ve got some yarn on hand, but I’m not sure whether it fits.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Many greetings from Germany 😉

  2. Hi Mareike!
    I used 10mm needles for this one – my red one is the same basic construction but a different pattern in the middle and that was worsted weight.

Tell me what you think
