FO: Hot pink cowl

This cowl is a giftie for someone who loves pink and is always cold, even in heated office spaces. It was a good use for some Debbiie Bliss Stella yarn left over from my Mirabella sweater.
The cowl is about 24 inches in circumference and 7 inches high. It is just a simple cylinder. I used a lacy rib pattern and knit it in the round. Any yarn can be used for this, as long as you use an appropriate needle size and figure out how many stitches you need to achieve the size you want.
The lacy rib pattern is multiple of 6 stitches. Here it is for knitting in the round:
Row 1 (RS): K2tog, YO, K2, P2, repeat all around
Row 2 : K4, P2, repeat
Row 3: K2, YO, K2tog, repeat
Row 4: K4, P2, repeat

I might make myself another one of these in a more neutral color.
