  1. Hi. I need help. I want to make the cowl called “Cozy Ribbed Scarf”. Originally from Lady by the Bay. I can’t seem to find out how many stitches to cast on. I have been looking everywhere online, in Pinterest, google and I just can’t find it.
    Can you help me out?
    Thanks, Rosalie

    1. Hello Rosalie,
      From doing a quick google search the instructions come up and it says to cast on 140 stitches.
      I hope that helps!
