After finishing the cowl holiday gifts for my Mom and my Sister back in November, I decided I liked theirs so much that I should make one for myself. For my cowl, I used Red Heart brand Heart and Sole yarn in Desert Sunrise. And, as I did for the previous cowls I made using the One Skein Self Striping Cowl pattern, using a size F hook my base chain was 100 and I worked the repeat section extra times to make the cowl longer - basically, I just repeated the pattern until I used up the whole skein of yarn - since I used a lighter weight yarn than the pattern calls for. I don't have anything new to add about the pattern, but I do LOVE the colors in this sock yarn. It's warm, despite being light weight, but it's not the softest wool-blend I've ever used.
