While this cowl is designed to be made with sportweight wool, you could conceivably use any weight of wool. You can easily adjust the size of the cowl to accomodate a wide range of gauges.
The instructions are written out but the plaid pattern motif is charted only. This is a relatively simple design that would be good for a colorwork beginner.
