This pattern makes a cowl/snood/shoulder warmer. To achieve all three functions, there is a lot of negative ease (about 20-30%) and size flexibility when used as a shoulder warmer. Casey, my lovely model has a 36″ bust and the yellow one she is wearing is the middle size. The brown one is the small size. You can make a cowl of any size by adjusting various pattern and yarn elements. I give guidelines to adjust size within the pattern.
