My body is longing for spring. This new knitted cowl is a result. I looked and looked for a cowl for the girls but then realized I just wanted something quick that could cover their shoulders much like a shawl but quick to make.
This cowl, cowlette or not really even sure what it would be called, (anyone know?) it is made from Cascade Magnum and I just love how fast it comes together. Really, a couple of Downtons and you are done.
I am a crochet designer. I used to make a living at it until I decided to dump Etsy and closed all my stores. My problem is that I am a crochet designer who now loves knitting. I get lots of ideas but when I write them up, they still look like crochet patterns. A dear bloggy friend of mine offered to test the pattern for me for which I am grateful. I would love to share this one with you so if anyone else would like a headache (you will need to supply your own tylenol) please send me a message and I will send you the pattern to try.
We are heading into yet another winter storm, it seems I have said that just about every week huh? Well, the winter blues have not been able to take hold because, well, because of all of you. No, really, it’s true. Your comments and emails, well, they make me smile and it’s hard to be blue when you’re smiling.
