Named after a genus of dragonflies, the Cordulia cowl is worked in the round on a circular needle and requires no grafting or seaming. The stitch patterns are provided in both charts and written, line-by-line form.
**Finished (Blocked) Measurements: **34.5 inches/87 cm circumference by 8.75 inches/22 cm deep

The yarn for the sample was originally an undyed off-white color. I dyed it yellow using marigolds, with an alum mordant. I followed the natural dyeing recommendations in the book Wild Color by Jenny Dean.
