it was, but it also made it HUGE around the top. SO I ripped back the cast off, and added some plain ribbing to hold it in, and am much happier with it.next time I think I would ignore the chevron pattern at the bottom and just do ribbing and owls - make it a little more size friendly.
Introducing the Owlie Cowl. Strange - it shows as sold out. How in the world can you sell out of a downloadable PDF pattern?
Anyhoo, great pattern, very cute. I modified it a bit, twice. First, I used a larger wool - SMART yarn, and so reduced the number of repeats around from 5 to 4. Still made for a good size, and the owls show up just fine. However, it did make it longer, so at first, I just finished with some stockinette along the top, rather than the chevron pattern and ribbing, thinking the roll along the top would be comfortable.
