|18 sts/24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette st|
Each half of the cowl requires one skein. One cowl is made from two skeins. If you're making it all yourself, you'll need one skein of each color.
If you're working with a friend, both knitters should choose a color they love, and make one of each of the two links in their chosen color.
This project uses a provisional cast on. Use your preferred provisional cast on technique; directions for one technique may be found here.
This project uses grafting. Instructions for this technique may be found here.

Join the ends of first link as follows: un-do provisional cast on and slip resulting live sts onto needle; if necessary also return live sts from other end to needle. Graft ends together in pattern.
Join the ends of the second link in the same way, but before joining pass the end through the first link so that once the second is Kitchener stitched they cannot be un-linked. Do not forget to link them - seriously, Ysolda did it twice and that's a lot of precise Kitchener stitch to have to re-do -- oops!
