it’s been quite a while since i released a new crochet pattern, but i’m pleased to share with you the Urchin Stripe Cowl. it’s a quick little number, perfect for the transition between summer and fall (in other words, NOW!); wear it with a cardi or hoodie to extend the season of your summer dresses and tops. i designed it as a way to practice the 4 basic stitches and where to put them at the beginnings and ends of rows, an aspect of crochet that beginners often find a bit confusing.
this little project is a collaboration with my pals at Kelbourne Woolens, purveyors of the lovely Fibre Company Canopy Fingering that i used to hook it up. the combo of fine, soft yarn and a bigger hook makes for a lightweight, drapy cowl that practically floats around your neck. you can read more about it over on their blog!
