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.
