Yarn DK or worsted weight
Yardage 1 skein of each color
The sample is a multi-color version. I used less than one skein of each color and most colors used leftover bits of yarn. If you have six full skeins of DK weight yarn, that should be plenty to knit both size variations of this cowl.
Hooded Cowl Approximately 775yds / 709m total
If you are knitting a six-color sample of the hooded cowl style, you will need approximately 129yds / 118m or a bit less of each color.
