I'm knitting your pretty cowl for my mother and I believe row 3 of your pattern should read: k2tog 6 times instead of 3 times. Also, it is less confusing if you put brackets around 2 or more stitches that are to be reapeated such as: (yo, k1) 6 times. I hope I haven't offended you with my suggestion. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern.
