"Lately, I’m obsessed with these little circular shawl/cowl hybrids. I decided to give a knit one a shot with some Knit Picks Brava I had for a yarn review. I’m pretty much in love with how it came out. The best thing is it only took one skein! Size One size 20” opening at the top, 38” opening at the bottom and 14” tall at the front. Yarn 1 skein of Knit Picks Brava in Orange (100% acrylic; 100g/ 218 yards; medium weight) Needle US 8/5mm 32” circular needle Other Notions 6 stitch markers."

is it so small that you have to use the magic loop or dpns

This is adorable. And I love the details on an easy pattern.

Is this yarn a DK ?

Hello judyd 6905560! The yarn used in this pattern is worsted weight. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

another very attractive cowl but what is this magic loop???

It's a way of working in the round when you would otherwise have to use dpn's. There are several great video tutorials on YouTube about it. Looks easier than faffing about with four or five needles. -)

no question but using a circular/round needle is easier than using four needles I find it hard to keep the knitting even all round the sock or whatever frequently end up with a trellis effect where the needles meet
