A Dash of Color
Inside Crochet Issue 7 I use cowls to chase away the winter wind and the winter blahs. By adding a dash of color next to the face, it brightens the whole look. Many times when I pick up the most luxurious of yarns, I can't resist but pull it up to my face to feel it's softness on my cheek. The best way to celebrate that "aah" moment is with a cowl. That's how this cowl started with the pink one shown below in Plymouth Baby Alpaca DK. Above, the cowl is remade in the lovely Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend. As Fall and Winter approaches here in middle America, a new cowl pattern is a great way to embrace the transitional weather with a dash of color.
