wintry cowl


Wintry weather is always welcome here.

Huge snow drifts. Huge snowflakes.  Huge prayers for at least 22 inches of the stuff.  Huge hopes of major snow accumulation that will somehow exceed the roof line of our house.


Now that winter has indeed made its frosty entrance -- well....one must have a gorgeous, wintry cowl, right?


And I found just the one!  Crochet today jan/feb 09  has a super easy cowl pattern that works up beautifully.



Using leftover yarn and my M hook, I fell in love with the ease & look of this stitch pattern.




It's a simple v-stitch that can be done almost mindlessly.  And with a big hook...




....well, a mere 31 inches later a luxurious cowl has formed.

The colours of your yarn, but also the pattern are really beautiful! Must be a soft cowl too.

a huge change from your "usual" projects Dawn - it looks like a really nice yarn to whip up your cowl in. Cowls are such a great invention.
Your photo montage's are magnificent - i feel chilly just looking at them - excellent colour matches !

Lovely! I could certainly use one of those today as it is cloudy and cold. We didn't think winter weather would come our way but for this day, it has arrived. I must find a pattern and get going with it. Best wishes, Tammy

..vedo che qualcuno ha già scritto in italiano, allora lo faccio anch'io! Ho scoperto casualmente il tuo blog ed è da più di un'ora che ci navigo: è meraviglioso, colorato, ricco di idee e con tanto, tantissimo buon gusto. Non è per esagerare, ma questo è il più bel blog per l'uncinetto che io abbia mai visto, davvero!!!
Me lo metto subito tra i preferiti,non voglio perdermi nulla dei tuoi splendidi lavori!
Saluti dalla Svizzera,
Claudia

Hi there, this is Joanne from San Diego and I am writing to thank you. You inspired me to pick up my crochet hooks again ... it has been about 20 yrs! I am not doing much ... long fashionista scarfs, but it is a good way to play with some of the new yarns and discover what I like. Thank you for being soooo inspiring ....
