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.
