Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! We had great family and friends time, delicious food and a chance to reflect upon what a wonderful year 2012 was! We watched some of our favourite holiday movies such as “Home Alone” and “Elf” and got addicted to BBC’s “Sherlock” as we watched both seasons within a couple days! Is anyone else a big fan? Can’t wait for Season 3!
Over the holidays I also had a chance to crochet more cowls as quick gifts for my friends and family! I made some variations to the base pattern for my “Chunky Double Crochet Cowl" which you can find HERE.
The top two cowls are “Loops & Threads Cozy Wool" in "Thunder" and "Golden Rod”. There was only one skein left of each of these colours so I adapted my pattern slightly. I chained 52 and managed to get about 10-11 rows at the end.
The bottom two cowls are “Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn" in "Grey Marble" and "Loops & Threads Cozy Wool" in "Stone”. I purchased two skeins for each cowl. I chained 55 and crocheted 15 rows for each of these cowls (with yarn left over).
I’m currently working on another variation of this cowl which is not crocheted in the round but rather row by row for a different look. I’ll be sharing it with you soon!
