What materials did you use? I used all the materials listed in the pattern, bulky wool yarn, size 9 circular knitting needle, tapestry needle, row marker, and I got a beautiful 2" wooden button from Jo Anne Fabrics.

What are you most proud of? This is the first knitting project I've taken on in years. My grandma started teaching me when I was 8 and I love that I've started knitting again! It turned out beautifully, just like the photo from the pattern, and best of all, my sister loved it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When I first started the project, I misunderstood the instruction to "knit three together," apparently I took it too literally. The cowl should not shrink at all! So basically disregard that instruction, and do everything else that it says. And don't be afraid to start over, I ripped the whole thing out at one point and started again.

I really like how it is stiff enough to cover your whole neck, but soft enough to look comfortable to wear. :)
