The Seeded Rib pattern is the perfect one for both a beginner or intermediate (I can't speak past the intermediate skill level). It's exciting- keeps your counting but not so much you miss the plot of 'The Americans'. We can all agree this show is underrated right? My cowl came together in about 3 hours.

Wear, wear, wear all winter long!
