Cable Edged Cowl is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Need Error fixes Row 19 : (at last 7 sts which should be 8 sts), I increased 1 stitch at the end when you only have 3 sts to Knit instead of 4, before knitting off the cable needle, that way the rest of the pattern does not get thrown off. They need to have an errors page for people to refer to before I would recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from another error Buttonhole row says * yo, k3tog, k7 * across. This means 8 sts between yarnovers. Next row says * (k1,p1,k1) in each yo, k7 * across. So what to do with that 8th sts. If you k8 instead of k7 you end with 48 sts which is 4 more than the other end. I'm not liking the idea of it flaring out on one side. Are there no pattern proofreaders on staff?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Same error as others I've had the same problem as others with row 19. I dropped the sl1p to make it match the number of stitches in the cable on the other side. No problems so far!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Error on row 19 The pattern looks lovely and easy to follow except error on row 19. Slip 4 st on cable needle, K4, but there are only 3 st left. But if you knit the 3 it works out to 44 sts. I'll keep going. The only other thing my it feels a little stiff. I think I would use a larger needle if I made another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Error on row 19 Near the end of row 19 the directions say: sl 1P. slip next 4 sts onto cable needle and leave at front of work. K4, then K2, ssk from cable needle. No can do. After you slip 4 sts onto the cable needle there are only 3 sts left. I assumed the pattern should have said K3 instead of K4 after the cable needle and my project is turning out fine.
