My Pelham Bay Cowl

My Pelham Bay Cowl
Size made: One size fits all
Craft: Knit

Needle used: US 5 circular (32" I think)
Yarn used: Lion Brand Wool-Ease Solids & Heathers
Color: 402 Wheat
Bought at: Michael's 
Use yarn again? Yep, but I have extremely sensitive skin and will need to wear this cowl with a high cut shirt because of the texture, but should be very very warm.

Project Details and Feedback
Duration of Project: February 23rd to April 22nd 2010
Modifications: Accidentally did a K1P1 ribbing border instead of the k2p2 that was called for.  Instead of repeating the knit around rows until cowl measured 15 1/4" I stopped at 8" and then continued with the border.
Make this pattern again? This is a very basic (and rather tedious) cowl.  I think that it was a very good cowl for a first-time cowl maker but I am sure I can find better patterns from now on.

I like it! And it looks so very nice on you :) Would look great with a gray wool coat.

I wasn't very happy with it at first but now it's growing on me. Can't wait till winter so I can actually wear it... haha!
