This is a nice pattern to follow however the finished product is extremely bulky.

I wouldn't consider this an Easy+ pattern either. The stitch combination is pretty complicated if you are an early knitter.

It would really help to list the number of stitches you should have once you've increased each row.

Overall, this is a nice looking cowl, but it's mislabeled as an easy pattern.

To make k5 together easier place stitches on a small dpl and knit off that. Not an easy pattern.

I really like the pod stitch design. Enough that I'm planning on making two more cowls. I suggest using a light yarn in order to see the stitchwork. I had a little bit of trouble with decreasing five stitches at a time, but I figured out a tricky maneuver that helped.

Yes, this was a bit hard to do the k5tog. I ended up doing a k3tog then k2tog then passing the st before over. Still worked fine. Everything else in the pattern was great.

It's coming out pretty, but would not call this one "easy" - miss one stitch along the way and it's a major pain to re-work. After some experimenting, the way to knit the 5 stitches together is to take the yarn and make a small loop, slip the loop through the eye of a large tapestry needle, draw it through the five stitches, remove the needle and place the loop onto the right hand knitting needle. Tighten and adjust the yarn accordingly afterward.

Be ware! This pattern is not as easy as it implies. I am an experienced knitter and find it very difficult to "knit 5 together" as the instructions indicate. To knit 5 together on a size 13 needle with heavy yarn is very difficult, not to mention doing the the "M1P" stitch. I may continue with the pattern but would like to know if anyone knows of a technique for knitting 5 stitches together that does not put you in a heavy sweat trying to do it? I can only give this pattern a 2 star rating due to the difficulty in knitting 5 stitches together. If I am successful in finishing the pattern, I may revise my rating.

Great pattern. Ends up very fluffy and warm. The pod stitch motif is very pretty.
