Too hard for a knitter who hasn't knitted in a awhile?
Hi all, I've put down the needles for a while, just recently got back into it. My friend would love this for her little girl and I would love to help her out. Has anyone knitted this? Pattern? Does it seem to difficult for someone who hasn't held the needles in awhile? Thanks for the advice!!

I've never seen a pattern for that. Doesn't look hard really, but would be a w/o the pattern.

Thanks!! I'm having her send the pattern...May have questions once she does! She found it on etsy. I love this site! Excited about getting back into knitting and I'm sure this site will once again be helpful!

It dosn't look to difficult. I've seen something similar on Ravelry but can't remember the name of it. But it's VERY cute! How long had you been knitting before? What skill level were you at? I suggest, when you get the pattern, you do a little practicing on the stitches before you get started, just to re-familiarize yourself to knitting. Would LOVE to see the FO!

It's super cute, and doesn't look like it would be too hard. Once you get the pattern you'll have a better idea!

Super easy!

I did a crochet version of one of her animal hoodies, and I don't crochet, without even buying the pattern. Just used photos to approximate. I did crochet because it was the version my sister picked out.

I knitted for several years (3-4) before taking the several years hiatus. I would have considered myself beginner-intermediate (I guess ).

Thanks RochesterKnitter, I was wondering if anyone had completed this before. The designer of this cowl has so many beautiful designs. Can't wait to get started on this for my friend!
