What are you most proud of? Making a really nice cowl from a single skein of inexpensive yarn! The pattern is free from Crystal Palace and the yarn is under $10. Plus, it is durable. I've washed it several times without any noticeable wear. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Even though the completed cowl is wonderfully soft, knitting with a nylon-strengthened yarn can wear on your fingers. Be prepared to alternate work on this project with another project to give your fingers a break.
