And when worn this way, it's kind of like a 290 gram (10.2 oz) necklace. This sucker is HEAVY. This is mostly due to the bulky yarn, but the silvery metal buttons I bought for it don't help with the weight, either (although they matched so well). I have to sort of flop it over on itself like that in order for it to feel warm at all because it's far too large to be snug up to the neck:
And just a touch too short to be wrapped around twice:
I, quite frankly, don't know what to do! At this point, I'm really wishing I had knit the small size, which would've been snugger around the neck but would've left me with a bunch of leftover yarn (mine was medium and large would've taken two skeins). I had wanted this cowl to be sort of an indoor cowl. My neck is always chilly at work and I wanted a little something to wear that wasn't really bulky and also wasn't a full-on scarf. I'm tempted to frog it and start over because the yarn is just too fantastic not to get worn, but it probably wouldn't get re-knit for months. I'm giving it a test drive at work today to see how it goes. What would you do?
