I'm crocheting the cowl pattern from the Textured Set in Hats & Scarves, and I'm taking a cotton to it.
And I'm using cotton yarn. I'm really sorry. I'm so very sorry about everything. But I had to do it. I hope you understand. Moving on!
I like this Lion Brand Nature's Cotton yarn, and I think 'take a cotton to' is a cute way to say that you like something. And in this case, it's appropriate. Nature's Cotton is a soft and fluffy yarn, and it turns out it's a great choice for a cowl. The cowl's texture comes from alternating single crochet stitches and double crochet stitches, and the rustic fluffiness of the yarn lends even more texture. It's lovely.
I love a good soft and squishy cowl, and this brown yarn feels pretty perfect to me right now. This is a fairly small cowl pattern. When it's finished it will be worn just like this--no looping around a few extra times. It's pretty simple and adorable. I think it will be a great accessory.
I feel like I should be saying more about this, but that's it! Sorry!
I will review a little bit. I like this cowl pattern. And I like some other patterns from Hats & Scarves, let me just tell you. No really, I can tell you!
I loved making the Cuddly Cowl and wish I knew where my daughter has hidden this because I would LOVE to wear it this fall.
I really like the cowl pattern from the Toasty Set and I can't wait to give it someone as a gift. It was a quick project, and I love how huge it is.
The Modern Chullo is awesome. I wasn't especially great at my first attempt at crochet colorwork, but this hat is adorable and its intended recipient loves it. I want to make one for myself because just look at this thing.
This little booklet is full of winning patterns! I think I'm going to try out at least one scarf pattern from this book, and I know for sure that I'm going to include this textured cowl as another great pattern when I finish it.
