I have visions of being admitted to an addictions centre to find help with my addiction for cowls and scarves, mostly for cowls. Oh, I enjoy knitting sweaters too, but there is something about cowls have to knit this one too... may soon have to join them in a series of looped fragments as drapes or wall coverings I am assuming that the Materials List with its two types of yarn each with a different requirement as to numbers of balls of yarn, is to allow knitters an option as to yarns??

No, the notation at the beginning indicates how many balls in each size skein to complete the cowl. You need a total of 90 yards so 2 of the larger skeins or 3 of the smaller skeins.

I'm a little confused about the materials list. How many yards - total - is needed for this scarf?

90 yards.

This cowl is absolutely gorgeous. I'm just wondering if it would have the same drape looked when I complete it at home. I often have that problem with knitting most cowls and infinity scarves. Has anyone tried this one out yet?

So you knit into the front and back of the first stitch only, on every second row? All the rest of the stitches are knit? Thanks!

Not quite, you are increasing at the beginning of every second row and decreasing at the end of it with a knit 2 together, that's what will give you the "slant". It looks good, I'm going to do it too!
