The one in the picture has more than three rounds of ribbing but the patterns says to do only three. Next time I will do more and maybe it will look like the one in the picture

I made this for a friend for her birthday. I did not use T & Q (although I LOVE that yarn, but did not have any), I used 2 colors of a #4 w. wt. yarn(lt. pink and a rose pink). Instead of the "ribbing" for the edges, I did 3 rows of the "seed st" (P1, K1, P1, K1, P1) on an odd # of sts., then repeat the same row, and my "border" rows did not roll or curl at all. Try the "SEED St." for border rows instead of "ribbing".

Simple to knit pattern, great for beginners like me! Mom likes the cowl very much! :)

I've made this cowl for everyone! Friends overseas, family, kids, and myself! It knits up in about 3 hours, and is great for men, women and children. Another great thing: usually no leftover yarn. Perfection.

Easy. Exactly as described. Great for quick gifts.

I enjoyed making this, however it didn't come out like the picture. My project turned out to be more of a tube, which is stretching with each use. My ribs at the top and bottom are not as defined.

I love simple patterns like this. I used Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy cast on and bind off.

The only change I would make is to use smaller needles for the rib stitching, like other patterns suggest. Using the size 15 all the way through leaves the ribbing a bit floppy.

Quick knit. Nothing too fancy. I used the Lion Brand Homespun yarn, which is awful...knotted up as I was trying to use it, but I do plan to try it out on better yarn.

I forgot to rate with my previous comment and picture, I give it 5 stars!

I love this pattern!
I knit about 12 of these cowls to give as Christmas gifts and I'm still knitting, now for myself.
The yarn and the pattern work well together - drapes beautifully.
