Cowl

Ok, first, forgive the awful picture! It was late at night right before I wrapped up Christmas presents to head to the post office the next morning… hence the bathroom mirror picture.Now that you’re forewarned and informed that, no, I do not consider bathroom mirror pictures to be anything above lame…

Finally I made something out of the beautiful yarn from the ugly sweater in my up-cycled sweater blog. A Christmas present for my mom. I made a cowl and I wanted it to be very warm so I used two strands of the yarn together and the biggest hook I have. I chained until it was the length I wanted, joined, and then crocheted away. No real pattern, just a mixture of sc, dc, hdc… though I did keep the stitches consistent for each row. I crocheted until it was long enough to bunch up nicely and be drawn up like a hood if desired. Then I took a single strand of the same yarn to make the band that garthers it together. For the band I just made rows of 10 dcs until I liked the length. I found two little buttons that fit perfectly through the dc stitches and sewed them on so that the band is removable and adjustable as desired. The flower I sewed onto a pin so it is also removable.

And that’s all folks. A kinda quickie blog with a kinda non-pattern today but I loved the results so thought I’d still share this one. Take it and make it your own if you so desire. :)
