Thanks to Vashti for letting be blog here about some of my cowl designs! I have several and will be blogging about them now and in the future. This is my Purple Tide Cowl, so called because it uses a stitch pattern that looks like waves up close. This particular model is created from Malabrigo's Silky Merino. Yummo, is all I can say! I love me some Malabrigo! This cowl is deep enough to be pulled up over the head to cover your ears. The stitch pattern is easy, and if you pick a fabulous yarn, you will have a gift that you can whip up in just a couple of hours; of course, you might like it so much once it's done, that you won't want to gift it! This pattern is one of the designs from my upcoming book, "Crochet, Naturally!", which features crochet projects made from all natural yarns. Look for it on Amazon after the first of the year. My next cowl will include a link to a free pattern, so stay tuned!
