Busy Bee Cowl Pattern

This pattern is written four different ways for four different weights of yarn (DK, worsted, bulky, and super bulky). All of the cowls have the same dimensions at the end, they will just require more repeats of the pattern and more cast on stitches the lighter the weight of yarn.

Gauge - DK(worsted, bulky, super bulky)
With US 6(7, 10, 13) needles:
18(17, 12, 9) stitches and 24(24, 17, 12) rows make a 4” square in stockinette stitch

Skills to know
