New Crochet Pattern: Cotton Candy Cowl
Despite the fact that it’s 99 degrees outside where I live, I know fall is coming. For some of you. I read your blogs and I’m jealous. For you, I designed this super cozy project, the Cotton Candy Cowl.
The cowl is worked from side to side in a simple 4-row repeat that makes it grow wider around the shoulders, but snug at the neck, as you go. You can work it in a #6 Superbulky yarn or hold 2 strands of #5 bulky (or maybe even worsted) together. Due to the big hook and thick yarn, it’s a quick one. I wear lots of cowls *in the house* when it gets cold because I find that if my neck is warm, I am warm.
The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry (click here for direct purchase even without a Ravelry account) and Etsy for $4. I’d rate the skill level enthusiastic beginner–although it has lots of texure, it uses only basic stitches Despite the fun bobbled texture, there are no clusters involved, and the buttonholes are easy-peasy. See more details on the Cotton Candy Cowl Ravelry page. And savor these last days of summer!
