"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Every mysterious lady out there should have a Misty Night Knit Cowl in her closet. If you don't, worry not, because they're incredibly easy to knit. The whole thing just takes two balls of yarn, and all you need to know how to do is knit, purl, and yarn over. It's so easy, your child could probably do it. Because it's so simple, it works up fast, so try knitting some as gifts to the ladies in your family for upcoming birthdays or holidays. Stick to black for an air of classiness, or go bolder with a brighter color.

I love the look of this. Just wondering if the number of cast-on stitches (52) is correct? How do you join in the round with that few stitches?

In the interest of full disclosure, it's a very cold and windy day here, but this cowl looks so warm and cozy that I just want to make it right now. I must also add, that I do love the look of the cowl and I will consider following the suggestions of using a lighter weight yarn.

I'm wondering if a lighter yarn might not work better - in the photo the cowl drapes softly and I do not think the chunky yarn would drape that way - just my thought if that doesn't work then maybe I'll try the chunky with 10 mm not sure

mine didn't look like this at all, too thick and bulky

I agree, the yarn is too heavy for the needle size stated in the pattern, I'm going to have another go at it with a much larger needle, see if that makes a difference.
