|Thaxton Hooded Cowl in thermal Slip Stitch Crochet|
|Undaria: one of many ways of wearing|
The Thaxton downloadable crochet pattern is $5.99. The pattern includes two ways to seam it, and two sizes for using less yarn if desired.
It's still in a tech-edited early release version in Ravelry. When I hear back from my pattern tester (the holidays slowed things down!), I'll revise with her always-valuable feedback and release the final pattern version. If you buy the early release version, you'll be automatically alerted by email when the updated version of the pattern is available for you to download. I love this built-in feature of Ravelry!
|Thaxton seamed 2nd way: tall cowl quadruple-rolled|
Thaxton is so warm because it's:
- densely ribbed, and
- stretchy-snug, and
- half alpaca fiber. The alpaca content of the yarn I used piles on even more warmth, much like angora would. (Alpaca and angora are both warmer than wool.)

When the final Thaxton version is available, both of these cowl scarves will also show on the DesigningVashti pattern page where you can see all Slip Stitch Crochet designs so far. Slip stitches are so fun to design with.
