Just photo-documenting this in case you never see it again! I finished the cowl and am now starting the hood part, and in case I screw up and have to riiiiip it out, I wanted proof I got this far at least!
As you know, I got half-way through this cowl the first time when I messed up really badly and had to frog it and start over. I'm being extremely careful this time and using a row counter (one of those clicker ones that keeps track of what row you're on) and a stitch marker at the beginning of each round to remind me to click the row counter!
I'll give you a link to the pattern I used (purchased) for this hoodie-cowl when I'm finished.
