Greyhaven Cowl | Pattern Review

I recently made the Greyhaven Cowl by Robin Ulrich. The elegance and uniformity of this pattern caught my attention, and I adore it. There are three size options. I made the slouchy size. I love the lace repeat, the size, and shape of the cowl. However, I am not very happy with my cowl, because of the yarn I used. It turned out stiff and itchy. I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Postcard. I chose this yarn because of the color and texture. However, it's just not soft. I love the yarn, and I love the pattern, but together they just don't work. Bummer. 

I want to make this cowl again with a softer and cozier yarn. There is also a matching hat, which I am excited to make, as well.
