"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."

This is such a beautiful and unusual cowl. This will be a nice addition to any outfit. You will have people asking you where you got it. With the winter coming up this is a must have. I love the combination of the ribbing and cable stitches. It looks difficult but really isn't. Thank you.

There is something about the cables, the blended colours, and the buttons - the combination makes it impossible for me to resist this one - shall have to knit it soon as summer will not last forever

Love the earthy colored yarn used for knitting the beautiful cowl! The cables appear to give it a warm fuzzy feel and the buttons make the cowl charming. This is definitely a scarf I have to try out. And with winter still lingering on I might have a chance to wear it this winter!

This is so beautiful. I especially love the buttons. It gives it a more put-together / completed appearance.
