small crochet cowl
This is really the last thing you'd like to see in Spring, but I realized that I forgot to post this several months ago when I made it. I only had this one photo and I was going to wait to post until I had more, but that ship has now sailed.
This cowl is nice and snug. No need to wrap it multiple times. It just fits snuggly around the neck and is tall enough to cover the mouth and nose if needed. I used bulky yarn so it worked up really quickly. If you plan Christmas gifts really early (unlike me who waits until Dec 1 to start planning), then put this on your To-Do list.
I believe I used this tutorial from Crochet In Color, but I crocheted in the back ridges of the half double crochet and joined the rounds for a knitted look. If you crochet, this is a lovely blog. Her designs are modern and many of her patterns are free!
