here What is great is that when I found this yarn I liked, the owner helped me translate it to the pattern by how much I needed and how many stitches to add to compensate for the different weight of the yarn and different size needles. I used Lana Grande 100% Peruvian Wool and it is divine! I used size 13- 16" circular needles, cast on 85 stitches and used 2 skeins. You can't tell from the photo how pretty the yarn (it was an impromptu ohoto taken at work) but here is a closeup of it. It's called Oatmeal. I think this cowl took me about 6 days to make in the evenings (since I messed up a few times and had to fix it)
