After much messing around, I finally, I mean finally made the cowl properly! I now know that the other wool was too fat and too chunky....oh, you already know that right?
Anyway, I called Helen a few times, sent a photo of the partial thing and even though it called for circular needles which I uses, I had to cast the stitches on as if it was straight because the wool would have been stretched. I certainly didn't want it stretched as I already have one that is!
So here it is, and it fits. I now must await cooler weather to wear it as we are still in the mid 40s and low 50s here in Whitby...
I am sewing today, it's a safer venue for me.. have a great weekend everyone!
