What are you most proud of? Even though I didn't exactly know how I was going to finish it off. I like the way it looks and can be worn either with the cowl up or down.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a canvas where anything goes. I think a rectangle in a simple yarn finished off with some oversized buttons would look great!

How can I get the pattern for this project? I love the looks of it.

Hi Terry, I don't have a pattern, really. I just did the 3-color brioche knitting from Nancy Marchant's book, Brioche Knitting (or is it Knitting Brioche). I knit a rectangle until I ran out of yarn and attached the buttons so it draped the way I wanted it to. Good luck, and drop me a comment if you need more guidance.

As a general guide, how big is the finished rectangle? This is very nice and would suit my mom well. I'm hoping to make one. Thank you
