"Looks like a nice project, however the patterns from this website that are featured are frequently missing so much essential information, that some of them are useless. The website for the yarn has to be translated and the translation to english is not great, so proves to be more than a little frustrating."
"There is no "book" you must click on the link to see the pattern on the page it links to. After you get to the page, you need to scroll down about 1/3 of the page to find the written pattern there. Hope this helps, happy knitting."
"Sorry, I don't know of a video for that stitch pattern. I did make this project about 10 or so years ago and I remember that it did not really look like the picture until it was completed, while it was on the needles it looked like it wasn't lining up. Is it possible that is what is happening with you?"
"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"

as I was reading the stitch pattern I got to step 8 "Rounds 10-14 Repeat rounds 3-7." but round 7 is missing. It reads " Rounds 5-6 Repeat founds 3-4. Round 8 Remove beginning of round marker and slip first 4 sts to RH needle. Replace marker and repeat round 1."

I did find all the missing info on the Red Heart website, the yarn is 5 balls of Boutique gleam yarn and round 7 is purl. Hope this helps, happy knitting.

I really do love the look of this cowl, but I do wish they had specified which yarn to use to make it. I shall go to the red heart website and find it.

There is something about the look of this cowl that reaches out to me - when I finish all the saved patterns I shall have a room full of cowls and a closet full of sweaters - might even give some as gifts!
