Last week, sometime, someone posted their neckwarmer based on the pattern here:

I was feeling quite desperate as there is little time before Christmas and my plans for scarves were not working for me. Yay for an alternative -- a QUICK alternative. :yay: It took me probably 5-6 hours, but I am a slow knitter. S-L-O-W.

It's Caron Simply Soft shadows in Mardi Grey. :)
It's so soft and the colors look more fantastic in person.

LOVE your cowl.. when you think about it.. why knit a whole scarf?
we just use it around our neck! Did you double up on that yarn? The pattern said to use chuncky yarn and SS shadows is wortsted ,I think a light worsted, isn't it? What needles did you use? Thanks for the info!! and the pictures.. some day, I am gonna figure out how to do the picture thing on here..

Instead of using chunky, when I used the worsted, I ended up using a size 10 set of needles and then casted on 43 stitches versus 38 that it recommended. I didn't double up and it turned out nice.

That looks awesome. I love making cowls. I made a mobeius cowl in one night last week. They do seem to knit up so much faster than scarves!
