With this one I used a "J" hook and Red Heart Symphony yarn in the color River Blue. This is a very lightweight yarn and is more like fuzzy string. The skein size is 3.5 oz. and it claims to be worsted medium weight. For me I found it amazing that after doing the nine rounds in the pattern I had not even used up 1/4th of the skein. Once again I kept on going till I reached 20 rounds then one round each on top and bottom of sc. Now I am considering leg warmers or fingerless gloves to go with the cowl. This one I am for sure keeping myself.
Oh, and I have been working on the Babette, which is not as nice as I hoped, and also the rose pillow. I am also thinking of doing some Plarn. I have cut up several bags for the project. Not sure what I will make, something small I am sure.
