YARN: I used my Shimmering Cashmere yarn… isn’t it scrumptious? So shimmery, due to the silk, and butter soft, from the cashmere. The shine, the richness of the colors… so REDONK! (I held all the yarn double)
-The black is some scrap yarn I had.
-The cream color is this yarn undyed. (If you’d like me to list some natural/undyed versions of my yarn, let me know!) Less than 1 skein held double.
-The blue is called BLUE VELVET and is listed here, while it lasts. (This shade comes and goes and may or may not be available when you read this post, but you can see all the other gorgeous colors listed at that link!) I used less than 1 skein, held double. If you’re making this all in one color, you’ll need about 2 skeins for the size I made and 3 for the pattern size. 4 if you want a really widddddde cowl.
PATTERN: Calm Cowl by Suzana Davidovic. I followed the pattern as-is, I just shortened it. So I quit crocheting sooner than the pattern called for.
HOOK: 5.5mm (I)
MODIFICATIONS: None, really, other than stopping before the pattern said to, so my cowl isn’t as wide as the original. In all honesty, I love chunky cowls and really liked the original version, but I had so many other projects going that I wanted to get this one finished. Eep! The truth comes out! 😉
OPINIONS: This was a grrreat pattern that I recommend to anybody, noobs included. Yep, even beginners can tackle this one. It was super simple, easy to follow and can be adjusted… so basically crochet until you run out of yarn and then finish off! I LOVE projects like that!
Let me know what you think in the comments below! Would you make this? Wear it?
Alrighty, we’ll chat soon. I’m off to list more colors for you so be on the lookout! Eep! Fun stuff.
