In the pictured cowls, I have used the following yarns, from top right, clockwise: Rowan Big Wool (one skein plus a little), Crystal Palace Merino Frappe (1 skein), Classic Elite Desert (1.5 skeins), and again, Crystal Palace Merino Frappe (1 skein).
For the aran weight yarns I cast on about 80 stitches on a size 10 needle. For the Big Wool I cast on around 50 stitches on a size 19 needle. Just knit for about 8 inches or desired height. It's nice to have the ribbing on the larger yarns to bring it in around the neck some. This is a great way to use extra skeins and make a quick project that people will love!
