know that I have made several cowls but at this time of year you can’t have too many and I much prefer them to scarves as there is no wasted dangly bits to get in the way or get caught on things (or for my son to pull and choke me!). I haven’t crocheted anything for a while, and in particuarly I haven’t crocheted anything with any of my cashmere yarns yet. So, I decided to use the light grey marl Perla as I hadn’t made anything using that colour either.
I used this pattern on a blanket I made when I was pregnant with my son, and it is very pretty, and also very quick and easy. It has scalloped edges too, which I think is very pretty for a cowl. The whole thing took between 6 & 7 hours and uses 4 x 50g balls. I made it over four evenings at Christmas while watching TV after my son had gone to bed, and I’m really pleased with the results.
The pattern will shortly be available on the site and is free to download to account holders.
