This pattern is free on ravelry.com and is called Old Shale Cowl. I had a limited amount of yarn, so I made it earwarmers instead of a cowl. I cast on 72 stitches and used a size 6 needle. This along with a flower used up nearly the whole skein.
I think it'll be a perfect size for a little girl. I'll try the cowl with a larger skein. LOVE the pattern.
