What are you most proud of? This was a bit of an experiment to see what this stitch pattern, which I am using for another project, would look like scaled up to worsted weight. I have used remnants from another project & this is wool that I'm really enjoying knitting. I didn't want to cut & rejoin the yarn when I finished so that meant I needed to (& managed to) graft the cowl inside out ! I wasn't so successful at matching all the stitches up properly in the seed stitch edge so will need to revisit that technique ;)

thanks Justine, yeah it was fun to do, just enough stitches, short enough length but variable enough that you don't get bored. Hadn't thought of it looking like a chain so great to have feed back thanks :)

I like the stitch pattern! The cowl looks chunky and warm.

Thank you :) yes it's lovely & warm, not too chunky & altho it's a worsted weight it's a lovely light wool
