Raspberry Cowl

This yarn is was a Christmas present this year. It's one ball's worth of Crystal Palace's Sausalito in the Mediterranean colorway (8108). Each ball has 198 yards so two could conceivably make a nice shawlette. It's very soft and drapey to wear which is nice.

I knit this with a size 3 Chiaogoo 16" circular which was fabulous because it eliminated the trouble of keeping 130 stitches on 3 double pointed needles. The pattern is the Baby Camel Cowl by Phreadde Davis; which is a free download on Ravelry.
This is a charted pattern and I did not follow everything as written. I left off the provisional cast-on and the edging chart. I did the same amount of garter rows that you would do to for the upper edging. Before it was blocked it looked very little like the photos in the pattern and I was confused at several points because I didn't realize the Yarn Overs don't always match up from row to row.
