That tiny cowl is the first Zuzu's Petals I knit (using US #4 needles and a skein of Finito for a closer fit, i.e. more cowl than scarf), which I've included it for scale. What happened with Zuzu the Second, you ask? I'm not sure how this is possible, but I used the wrong needle size. Like, REALLY wrong. Four sizes too large wrong, in fact. It puzzles me that I didn't think at any point "hey, these needles are awfully big!" Actually, I think think that a few times, but instead opted to knit away blissfully. Go figure.
So, long story short, kids: 6mm needles and US #6 needles are NOT one in the same. I do, however, like the finished product - it's probably the closest thing to a poncho I'll ever make. Now if I can just figure out what to call it...is it a sconcho or a scowl?!
