I've been happily crocheting away on the Short But Sweet cowl from Crochet Cowls. I just work a few rows every now and then, whenever I get the chance.
Once you get started, you're just working the same row over and over but it looks like your rows are alternating because you turn your work. I love how it looks!
This a medium-to-shortish cowl. There's not a lot of draping or hanging so if you're not in the mood for a long, swinging cowl, this might be more your style. This fabric isn't stiff, but it's thick and solid and snuggly. Here's how the finished product looks in the book:
It's not ridiculously bulky, but it doesn't look like it would feel too flimsy either. This is a cowl to look stylish and keep you warm. Very warm.
Also? It's made with bulky weight yarn and a J hook.
|Please note that this is bulky weight yarn--not super bulky.|
That's some mighty yarn! I also don't remember what brand it is. I think it's something discontinued and also a little more teal in real life. I think it's going to be a lovely and super warm cowl, and I'm enjoying working on this each night before bed. Which is a good thing because a cold front is coming, and I think I might be working on this with a bit more frequency.
