Seed Stitch Infinity Cowl and Hat

I fell in love with this cowl when I saw it on JJCrochet's website, so I had to make one. I figured it would be the perfect birthday gift for my friend Cara, even though she most likely won't be able to wear until next winter...

I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in color Grey Marble and size 13 needles.  The pattern calls for size 17, but the largest I had was 13 and I did not feel like buying new ones.  As a result, the stitches in my cowl are tighter than the original, but I still really like the effect of the seed stitch.

I tried to bind this with a kitchener stitch to hide the seam rather than just sewing it together to form the infinity loop/mobius strip, but it didn't work out so well.  I lost track of which step I was on...several times.  But I think it still turned out nicely.  I even had enough yarn left to make a matching hat!  Now all we need is a real winter this year so my friend can actually use these...
