Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I chose this lovely pattern as my first project for my handspun yarn. It was an excellent choice! The pattern was very easy to follow and quickly memorized. My hand-dyed handspun cowl looks marvelous and I'm proud to wear it. Thank you for such a beautiful pattern!

How can you possibly call this pattern easy. Starts with use however many stitches it takes? Are you freaking kidding me? And what novice knitter knows what a false cast is? This is the worst pattern I have ever seen posted on any site anywhere.

You're entitled to your opinion, what you are not entitled to do is ruin it for everyone else. there are plenty of knitting sites on the internet, you'd probably be happy somewhere else with your entitled opinions and attitude. The pattern clearly states it is an intermediate pattern, but easily customizable, which is a great learning experience for anyone looking to advance their skills.

The pattern states to cast on a multiple of 94. That's pretty clear. I wish more patterns included that information so I can increase or decrease a pattern on my own.

what could be simpler - cast on a multiple of 9 4 and the designer tells us she used 58 stitches 6 x 9 stitches with the 4 stitches added. One can increase it if needed or decrease it -- add to the 54 or subtract from it by multiples of nine then add the 4 to the eventual number of stitches... as for your attitude, I really wonder if you belong in this group..
