Almost a Hat, Cowl

I was going to knit a hat but I changed my mind...  made a cowl instead :-)

Yarn: 1 skein of bulky weight yarn (about 100 yards).  I used Tosca by Lang Yarns.
Needles: 7 mm 16" circular needles
Gauge: 12.0 sts = 4 inches
Required Skills: Cast on, Knit, Purl, Knitting in a circle, Bind off
Size: One size

K - knit
P - purl
M1 - make one
sts - stitches

Cast on 50 sts loosely and join in round.
K1, P1 ribbing for 2 inches. 
Knit 1 round.
Repeat K5, M1 until end of round. (60 sts)
Knit until the work measures 10" from the cast on edge.
Bind off loosely.
