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.
