Week 30 of 52: 3-Hour Cowl

Crazy holiday weekend, but I have a new pattern to share with you, regradless.
This cowl is the perfet thing to share during this busy time between Christmas and New Year's Eve.
Week of Dec. 25 to Dec. 31:
Pattern: 3-Hour Cowl by Ijeoma Oluo
Yarn: 1 ball of Rowan Purelife Revive (137 yds/50g, 36% recycled silk, 36% recycled cotton, 28% recycled viscose)
Needles: US 10.5 16 inch circ and/or US 19 (any size circular)
A) My most important piece of advice on executing this pattern - in leiu of row 2, work row 2 simply by knitting across the row with the US 19.
B) For row 3, basically, over the next 4 sts,  without slipping anything off the needles, knit in this order: st 3, st 4, st 1, and st 2. Or, place sts 1 and 2 on a cable needle and hold to the back. Work sts 3 and 4, then work sts from the cable needle.
Happy New Year!
