Rainbow Twist Infinity Cowl

This is an easy infinity scarf to make, it should take between 2-3 hours to crochet.  Variegated yarn makes this scarf burst with color.  The stitches used are basic and you must know how to foundation double crochet, front and back post double crochet.   Remember the internet is your friend, there are many tutorials and videos on these stitches.  This scarf can be worn around the neck, doubled around the neck and as a hooded scarf.  The choice is up to you.  I’m stuck on the Big Twist Rainbow Classic yarn for the moment and this may be my go to cowl yarn.  Make sure you check my post on Joann’s Big Twist yarn.

The pattern can be found below.

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!

 

 

Poncho Frenzy

There seems to be a poncho frenzy going on in the crochet world.  The poncho can be found on Simply Crochet Facebook page.  What caught my attention was the texture of the collar.  The back and front post double crochet created a thick ribbing effect.  Be warned, the cowl part is a yarn eater.  I was a little skeptical about the cowl but to my amazement that is what makes this poncho so special.  The cowl can be worn up or down.  The cowl reminds me of something from the medieval times.

Poncho Progress - Finished Cowl

The colors I chose were from Red Heart (Carrot, Buff, Aran, Coffee) and the green was from the Vanna White Collection.  I chose the colors based on the amount of skeins I had in that color.  The choice of colors were completely random.

Poncho Progress - Almost Finished

 

I’m tall and I wanted to see how it looked on a live person.  Pam was very happy to model for me.  WTG Pam, you look great.  It wasn’t quite as long as I wanted it to be so I added more rows.

Poncho Progress - Pam

This was an easy project for a beginner.  You may want to watch a video from Moogly on front post double crochet and back post double crochet.  I omitted the fringes but you can your own edge type.  I can see myself making more of these and trying a different neck style and edging.
