On modifications: yes, I admit, I am a modifier. I changed the leaves pattern to a Norwegian fair isle from the vast collection of free patterns of Jeannette from Netherland which I will remember more easily and where I do not have to catch in floats of so many stitches. Both hand knitting is difficult enough. If you want a clever explanation look here. Now I am a thrower too. Rainbow yarn on left hand and picking- green background yarn on the right hand and throwing.
Free Pattern: Wave Cowl use this pattern for the ocean blanket
