You did a great job! It looks super warm

Thank you very much!

Can anybody suggest me super chunky yarn? (for needles 15 or 17) I would like new yarn that is in the same price range and thickness as Seriously Chunky yarn, but that it has a bit of wool or something other than 100% Acrylic. (it can be a blend, i know 100% wool canít be so cheap ;))
And I should be able to buy it online ;)

Thank you!

That will warm you up. Very nice. WoolEase calls for sz. 13 needles to get 9 sts/4". The wool percentage in it varies. You can look here too. SpinRite super bulky yarns.

Super nice! I love cowls, no ends to worry about like with a scarf, and faster to knit!

Thank you everybody ;) I also make fingerless mittens that match :cheering:

That looks so nice and warm :cool:

BTW, good job on the dropped stitches! They look quite evenly to me - I struggle to get them the same length all along the row, let alone on different rows. Nice work!
