Super chunky or super bulky yarn - 42 stitches and 20 rows resulting in a fabulous cowl... and 42 stitches cast on loosely will fit over an adult head especially in this bulky wool -- I have knit several cowls with 40 and 42 stitches and can't wait to start this one

shouldn't there be 2 yo's in row 3? I am loosing stitches!

The cast on amount of stitches is wrong. 42 cast on stitches would not go over an adult head much less a childs. There is a misprint. Please correct

Hi there! Unfortunately I checked out the original pattern, and it does, in fact, say to cast on 42 stitches loosely. Make sure you cast the stitches on loosely enough, or it will be too small to fit over a person's head!

I think with a size 19 needle and super bulky yarn a cast on of 45 might be o.k. Big materials= big garments.
