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...
