I made my sample in Red Heart Chic Sheep #4 weight yarn. This yarn is soft, 100% Merino Wool, comes in 24 vibrant colors and is machine washable! I love the stitch definition in this yarn.
Of course, you could choose from a wide variety of yarns for this cowl.
Yarnspirations has a nice selection of worsted weight yarns for you to choose from!

The Mimi Cowl is full of texture and dimension and I love the way the yarn enhances the design! The ‘knit look’ body of the cowl is made using a one row repeat that is so easy, you will be pleasantly surprised. The cowl neckline and edging also resemble a knit look ribbing – how tricky! Be sure not to work the slip stitches tightly or you will likely be frustrated!
I love the classic look of a creamy colored cowl or scarf, but this cowl would look good in so many colors and the design and style is timeless.
The Mimi Cowl is so easy to wear too. Just pull it over your head – no buttons, no pins, no fuss, no muss!
