if you have a rigid heddle loom your loom waste will be less than on a floor loom. you can wind direct warp just leave PLENTY of warp, i like a minimum of 125" .
for your first cowl 8-12" wide range is best. use varied warps for  more color and texture interest.
Photo: leaving a MINIMUM of 25" " fringe" ( UNWOVEN WARP ) in the beginning  then weave at least 60", i do 75",BUT YOU CAN DOUBLE YOUR COWL AROUND YOUR NECK, SO  if you do that you will need to add to your warp length when you warp   ,THIS IS THE measurement of the   LENGTH YOU WEAVE   NOT  including the unwoven fringe you did not weave in the beginning.
Photo: untie from the front rod  the unwoven fringe at the begging from your front rod after you have woven your 60- 75"  you can see the LONG part you leave unwoven in the beginning in this photo.
Photo: fold the 60"- 75" or more woven part up towards the reed  but if you want a mobius twist on   your cowl twist it once, then lay the fringes up towards the reed.
