Camp Loopy Yarn July

This month we were to use 600 yards of yarn and make something we had spied somewhere.  I kept seeing this cowl on the front page when I went searching for patterns for various projects.  I like cowls as I don't like hats or scarves. SO in keeping with the safari theme and decided to do a zebra colorway and I have a black winter coat, I decided to make this.  I cut the cast on stitches in half and just knitted until it was as tall as I like. I used 656 yards.  Since some of the stitches are slipped in each row it is almost as if it is self-lined.
