  1. oo, I was just looking for a cowl pattern for dk yarn & this one is just lovely. :)

  2. I like that stitch pattern. Very nice. I wish the name was different--I have a coworker with that name and just hearing it makes me twitch.

  3. Love this pattern - and it looks especially beautiful in the blue tweed. Is City Tweed soft enough for a sensitive neck???
