But rather than a dropped stitch, the Moguls Cowl has you pick up stitches from w-a-y below where you are currently knitting which allows the knitter to create this mogul-like affect.

Sure, you have to pay attention or else you'll pick up the wrong stitch or perhaps make a mogul where it doesn't belong (hint: no looking up at the movie you just rented when you get to this part of the pattern).
I really love the effect of this technique .... and did I mention how much I love working with Berocco Ultra Alpaca? Yeah, I think I've gushed about it before! But it really is such a nice yarn and it makes for a soft, squishy fabric. I won't be keeping this cowl (shhh ... it's a Christmas gift) but I'm already planning on making one for myself this winter.
