Side Step

I got a bit sidetracked with wanting to start something new. So I made a Cowl from some one skein yarn I had left over from another project done last year.

For the Cowl I used the pattern that was featured in the Crochet World Magazine for December 2011. The pattern is called Chunky Speckled Neck Warmer and is free for that month.

I used Red Heart Baby Clouds in Pink Lemonade. It is a bulky yarn but I only used about half the skein when I had completed the 9 rounds called for in the pattern. Therefore I continued on since I did not want just a partial amount left over. I continued until I used up the skein and wound up with a hooded cowl.

It is so soft and I am going to love wearing it as I trot to the store or go to the doctors office. Oh, I gave it to my daughter but I am in the process of making another.

Ghost, OUT!

You are so generous! I love cowls. I think they're very clever. Nice job on this one and I agree with you - no sense in leaving half a skein.

I love your cowl! I have gotten several patterns for one off of the internet recently (ravelry), but had not taken the time to start one. Yours turned out so great, I might have to start one now!
