Pink & Brown Cowl for Janet

A few months ago Janet gave me a gift of a few hanks of hand-spun yarn made by her. It’s all lovely yarn, and I decided to thank her by making this cowl. The design for the cowl is entirely my creation, based on simple mobius scarves I designed a few years ago, and incorporating a new stitch pattern from the book: 220 More Crochet Stitches: Volume 7 (The Harmony Guides).

Burgundy Cowl

This is a companion piece for the Light Weight Summer Sweater I finished last Spring, from Book: Tricotage de Lin. I used the stitches from that pattern to create this tube shaped cowl. It’s a loose stitch which makes the finished piece flow nicely. All layered together around my neck it’s quite warm. Wearing it as a hood makes it thinner protection against the cold, so I consider this for Spring or Summer use, or layered under a hooded wool coat maybe.

Mobius Scarves

I can’t recall where I got the idea for this, but it was simple to figure out how to backwards engineer the mobius effect. Made with a large hook and chunky yarn, or double strands of regular yarn. Wool or acrylic. Add something soft and fuzzy on the last row.
