wham bam thank you lamb

this is my first chunky knit project. it's for my cousin phoebe, who turns 21 tomorrow. she has been asking me to knit her something since i began four or so years ago so i thought this would be suitable.

the pattern is from susan chang on ravelry but i cast on more stitches (30) and knitted it much longer than specified (30 instead of 21 inches). i like how it's looser on the neck and can be worn in different ways.

i started with rowan big wool but it just felt too scratchy for around the neck

so i switched to debbie bliss como (cashmere as well as merino) and used bamboo needles.
