First Garment: Icelandic Cowl

Hi Guys!
Warning: Newbie alert!
I've gotten pretty far on my icelandic cowl...which really isn't a cowl :) I modified the collar, and even has shaping, not bad for my first garment. Going from scarfs to this was a little scary! I've been tempted to make this longer, but I kinda like it as is.

You can see that my sleeves are a little big. Because I used a different yarn, my gauge was off, but I think I'll be able to work with it. I've uploaded more on the flickr page

What yarn did you use?

I love your thing I love about crochet, it is fairly easy to alter a pattern to meet individual needs. and if it doesnt work, I call it an experiment and give it to my great neice who is 2 and loves my soft creations regardless of how they turn out,,,,,,lots of doll blankets.........LOL
