Knit Ridged Cowl Reviewed by Kristen Nelson on 2012-11-12 *****
i absolutely adore this pattern. it was my first "in the round" project and went over exactly how it should have. i gave this to my greandmother as a gift last christmas and she ahs commissioned me to make one for her sister :) i used a baby yarn with some sheen (not LB *eek*) and held two strands together. i also used size 10 needles and the result was stunning. pardon my unattractive outfit in the picture, i didn't realize i would end up posting it here! :)

Knit Ridged Cowl Reviewed by Erika Leahy on 2012-11-05 ****
Loved this pattern! Super easy to knit and it worked up quick because the yarn was so thick. I didn't have any problems with the size.

Knit Ridged Cowl Reviewed by Allison Gessner on 2012-01-25 ***
The pattern says to use a gauge of 14 sts per 4", but I think that is too loose for the weight of the yarn called for (Superwash Merino Cashmere, a worsted weight yarn). The other cowl patterns using SMC indicate a gauge of 18-19 sts per 4", so I plan to use that gauge for a thicker fabric and cast on accordingly. (about 120 sts) Will probably need more yardage to acheive the same length with this tighter gauge.

I made this using LB Wool Ease. I had 89 stitches in the round. It fits me great. I knitted most of this when riding in the car. My ten year old daughter loves it and wants one of her own. I'll go with fewer stitches for her. Sure keeps out the Kansas wind!

Lovely Cowl! Reviewed by Stacy Foote on 2011-12-22 ****
I am working on this cowl right now. It's looking really good and I like the pattern and the ease of it. My only criticism of it is that it wasn't big enough when I cast on, and I don't have a large head. It was difficult to make adjustments to begin with. Once I figured out how to make the cowl larger than the 1X (which was VERY small) it was easy and so far, good going. I wish more of Lion Brand's pattern selections had larger sizes. Overall, though, once this is finished, I'm confident that it will look good. I keep checking it to be sure that it's going to fit and look right. It's a good pattern, just check the fit (over your head) after you cast on and knit a few rows.

I made one as soon as I saw the pattern. Very pretty and warm. I like to use different weights of yarn so I adjust the number of stitches cast on and the width. I have made nearly 100 for the local children's hospital. Love the pattern!

my cowl turned out fabulous! I shortened it to 3 skeins and it was still warm and cozy. love the yarn, love the look, love it all!

This pattern was on the skeins of yarn that I bought and the pattern there said to use Size 11 circular needles, which worked with casting on 82 stitches and the size worked.

Very pretty! I added 5 stitches to make it wider so I could drape it over my head on those extra chilly days! Hope the photos are of some use.

Knit Ridged Cowl Reviewed by Jean Kohlman on 2011-01-30 *****
I love this pattern. It is very easy. With the frigid winters of ND, it is perfect to wear as a cowl or a hooded cowl. Made a cord and wove it through one end for tightening in the wind. Gave several away for presents and they are very much appreciated.
