Cilantro was created with big wrappy scarves that easily scrunch around your neck in mind. It's a triangle-shaped wrap, not entirely unlike a shawl. But Cilantro is a bit asymmetrical, and designed to be worn wrapped up, not extended across the shoulders.
By casting on at the point, and working in pattern until you're nearly out of yarn, Cilantro uses up every yard. Even better, Cilantro can be worked successfully with nearly any gauge of yarn. Use the yardage specified for worsted-weight and sock-weight as a general guideline, and pick a needle size two sizes larger than what you'd use for stockinette.
Instructions are provided in both written and charted form. Finished Size: approx. 40" at short edge and 52" along sawtooth edge.
