Merlot Cowl Reviewed by Barbara Northrop on 2012-12-28 *****
I just finished my cowl which I started on 12.22.12. I love it!! I used the amethyst chenille with needle size called for in the pattern. My only suggestions is to cast on loosely if you are a tight knitter like I am. I also used a very loose bind off called "Grandma's Bind Off" from youtube which allows for a very nice finish that drapes on the neck. I love working with the chenille and want to make matching hand warmers because I work in a very cold office building. This was fun to make and easy.
