Biggest Needles Ever

My sister is moving to the Great White North and begged me for a cowl for her birthday. She picked it out (super bulky yarn) and picked the pattern.

I didn’t check the needle size. This pattern, cute though it is, uses size 35 needles.

Yep, that wasn’t a typo. US 35 needles. The super bulky yarn is held double.

I think it turned out alright, though, despite the broomsticks for needles and the mad search for the least common circular needle size ever… And it’s certainly WARM.
