  1. I’ve started the Shadow Cowl four times, finally have the pattern correct for the two set-up rows and 8 regular rows. Hope it goes more smoothly from here on. Using Simply Soft in Country Blue (A) and Bone (B). This is my first KAL.

  2. I don’t see anywhere what yarns are recommended. Is it posted and I’m just missing it?

  3. Can’t wait for my yarn to arrive–got an email that it was shipped today. I switched out purple for the green in the model. Purple is a fall color, right? : )
