I finished knitting my first Christmas gift-the Diamond Cowl. It was a very easy pattern. The one minor change I made was casting on 84, instead of 72. I thought 72 stitches would be tighter than I'd want if it was for myself, so I cast on an extra 12 stitches (the repeat is every 12 stitches and was easy to memorize). The pattern was easy, but not too easy. I could watch TV shows while knitting this, and not get lost in the pattern.
