Love the pattern, but not the yarn 2 out of 5
I enjoyed working on this pattern it's a quick project and the pattern is easy to learn. But I was very disappointed in the yarn, which I know is a bold statement, since these yarns were specifically selected and dyed for these kits. I purchased the Vertigo kit, which is meant to shift through brown, yellow, green, sky blue, and purple against a backdrop of a light blue. Sadly, the colors in my finished project just didn't compare. First, the solid yarn was far darker than I expected. I understand that dye variations happen and that colors display differently on some screens, but the blue I received was too dark to contrast with the variegated yarn. So my cowl looks overwhelmingly blue with a few muddy pops and hints of color. The solid blue just overpowers the other colors. Second, the color changes on my ball of variegated yarn were extremely long even though I got proper gauge. So my cowl has nowhere near as much color as the sample I didn't even get to the brown. The pattern did caution me to start with the color I liked the most, since all of the yarn would not be used, but I didn't expect to have a color last for so many repeats of the pattern and to not even get to an entire shade. I could have cut the yarn and forced more rapid color changes, but this would have defeated the purpose of having the continuous ball of variegated yarn. Finally, once I washed and blocked the finished piece, it was far drapier than I expected despite proper gauge. This would be absolutely lovely for a scarf or shawl, but for a patterned cowl like this, I expected more stability. Because of the drapiness, my finished cowl flops open and shows the wrong side of the knitting -- which is a bit of a problem after tediously crossing all of those X stitches. Sadly, this is probably the first thing I've ever purchased from JBW that hasn't knocked my socks off. I would definitely knit the cowl again, but not with these selected and quite expensive yarns.
