Holy Cowl

My fringed cowl was slightly modified from Posh Patterns Blog.  I used Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in Wine.  Instead of chaining 43, I chained 60 and crocheted 10 rounds instead of 7 rounds.  Depending on your tension I would suggest purchasing 2 skeins.  I needed the extra skein for the fringes.

The cowl can be completed in a couple of hours and would make a nice gift for someone.  Howl Cowl, I’m going to get my sister for putting me on this cowl phase.

This to can be made for you from Crochet Styles 4U.

Rainbow Twist Cowl

Another cowl completed using the Holy Cannoli Cowl pattern.  Yarn used was Fun Brights Big Twist Rainbow Collection.  The package said it was bulky yarn which I think should be considered worsted weight yarn.  I bought some more of this yarn in a different color while it was 50% off.

Hope you enjoyed this quick post and Happy Hooking!

 

 

Big Twist

If you have noticed Joann’s yarn section has been looking pretty slim to none during the last 4 weeks.  I was able to pick up many skeins on clearance and yarn that I normally wouldn’t purchase.  Something new must be coming.  Every Saturday I would go back to watch the disappearance of the yarn.

Beyond the shelves were full again and behold a new brand of yarn by Joann’s called Big Twist Collection Value Worsted Yarn.  The regular price $3.19 for 6 ounces, but I was able to get it with a coupon, of course.  In my opinion, the colors were alright, nothing new and exciting.  There were some colors that caught my attention.  I would compare this yarn to the Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn at Michaels.  It was a tad bit softer than Redheart Super Saver Economy.  Big Twist looks like it will hold up during washings and will make a great sturdy blanket.

This is the color palette I chose, black, cream and scarlet.

I would definitely purchase this yarn again and would also like to try their other premium yarns which can be found here.

That’s it for now and until then Happy Hooking!

Cold Weather is Coming

It’s not hardly cold here in Virginia.  It was in the upper 70’s today and it’s still September.  Christmas and Halloween decorations are out already.  Why do they rush the holidays?

During my trolling on social media I’ve come across some cold weather crocheting patterns.  These are free patterns but if you would like for me to make one please send me an email.

Cowl was made with LionBrand Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton yarn.  That’s a mouthful to say.

No pattern.  I chained 56, 3 rows of fpdc/bpdc, and some dc’s and thought of some stitches as I went along.
