Love this pattern, I used Size N hook, worsted weight yarn, held two strands together and made an awesome SeaHawks inspired cowl. Very easy pattern to follow and one could easily make smaller or larger increasing or decreasing the chain at the beginning of the project.

i'm trying to make this cowl, but should have read all of the reviews first. everyone is so polite, while i have to rip it apart again. using a K hook is making a gaiter. hard to believe this is considered for beginners.

Love the yarn. Worked this in a spiral so the colors blended smoothly. Working per directions, the colors do not flow/match well at the seam. Using a stitch marker at the 1st stitch to mark each new round, I alternated single crochet stitches working in the front loop for a round and the back loop for the next round, and so on. This provided the cabled effect shown on the model.

Love this yarn! Soft, yummy hand. I used a HDC throughout except for first and last rows and worked it in the round so the colors lined up better and didn't have to join the ends. I also used this pattern with left over baby weight yarns, adjusting the pattern for size. It came out soft and dainty.

I made this cowl with leftover yarn from my many afghan projects. Because I am lazy, I did first row in single crochet and the rest in half doubles. Still in back loop only each row, and when it looked wide enough I did the last row in singles again. They turned out great, everyone at my knit& crochet group loved them and began using their leftovers as well. You can make one in about 2 hours, and they are great gifts in the winter. We are gonna make them for our church bazaar in the fall.

I had some novelty yarn I wanted to play with and this looked like an easy place to start. used Homespun with some eyelash yarn mixed in for texture and it turned out great. Getting ready to start #2

I made two for my daughters and they love them! Working on one for me. Keeping us warm!

Love the yarn, love the pattern. However, I think for me, I'll have to chain it longer next time to have that looser feel as it appears on the model. I found the cowl a little difficult to fit over my head (my head size is larger than the average woman) but I expected it to be cozy, not vice like. But overall, it's really nice and beautiful.

I made this cowl a little bit longer and not quite as wide. I'm guessing that this is why I didn't get the striped effect as in the picture. Still, it turned out pretty and was super easy, without looking like it was super easy. The yarn is really soft and cozy too!
