I decided Thursday afternoon at work that I needed to tink back the last round I did so that I had enough yarn for binding off, and it was a good thing that I did because after binding off I had just over 6" of yarn left. And I don't make a habit of leaving a long cast-on tail either so that end was about 4" long. I like this cowl and I like this yarn, it's very soft. The yarn's discontinued, of course. I'll use this pattern again.
