Oh my, where did that last week go! There have been lots of sewing related things taking place, but no blog posts to show for them. All in good time (which means, all when I find the time). This time next Friday I’ll be sewing up a storm at Sewjourn, having spent the last few weeks on a huge cutting out frenzy. So if you do follow me on instagram, be warned – I’ll be posting photos as each garment is completed!
In the meantime, my last few crochet projects. This Muirlands Cowl was crocheted over the Easter break.
Cowls and scarves are really difficult to photograph effectively, so I enlisted Ada to help me. I crocheted this in Bendigo Woollen Mills Highlands. It used most of the 200g ball. I enjoyed the stitch pattern, which was repetitive but not boring. The two row repeat gives the cowl a great deal of texture, with the post stitches creating ridges on one side of the scarf.
To wear it you simply double it over (unless you like it left in a long loop, that is).
The great thing about cowls is that they stay in place, and don’t fall off in the way that a long scarf can. This is a great free pattern – highly recommended! My cowl is ravelled here.
