Linda P I made this a few nights ago using Lion's Hometown USA yarn, (super bulky 6 ply) and it worked up really quick. I struggled with the rose at first, then figured it out. Gonna make another one, using different color chunky yarn and a size P hook and see what happens ;) I like the simplicity of this pattern--it's a keeper!

I'm halfway thru this cowl...does the SC row in the middle of the pattern serve any special purpose? It seems to be the only SC row (other than the 1st) Just curious. Thanks
