Crochet Along Cowl(s)


I participated in the Crochet Along over at One Dog Woof, and here are my finished products! I ended up making a total of four cowls based upon the provided pattern. (By the way, I'd love if you'd vote for me, I'm #30!)



"The Potpourri Cowl" is the only one that I followed the pattern exactly.   I used a super soft 100% cotton yarn.  My daughter has claimed this one as hers.


The second one I made, "The Patriotic Cowl" I added about twenty chains stitches to the foundation chain and also added two additional rows of the v-stitches.  This one is also 100% cotton.  



"The Lime Green Cowl", the third one that I made, is by far the longest.  (If you can call a circular cowl long . . .)  I really like this one!  It is made with Simply Soft yarn. 


My fourth and final cowl, "The Sapphire Cowl" is much more of an all weather decorative accessory than something to keep you warm.  I doubled the amount of stitches in the foundation chain and more than doubled the number of v-stitch rows. I used a fine bamboo yarn and only used one strand of yarn.  This is a very lightweight cowl.


So what do you think?  Do you like the cowls that I made?  Which one is your favorite?

  3. What a great selection of cowls you made. I love the yarn you used for the potpourri cowl but the blue bamboo one is my favourite. It looks like it would be lovely to wear :)

  4. These are beautiful! It's nice to see how you changed each one just a little but enough to make each special.
