Cheerful, Creative, Crocheter and Collector of all things Colorful describes me to a C--er, I mean a T. My sweet, left-handed granny taught me (a righty) to crochet when I was but a youngster. My first project was a hideously long scarf for my dad. It seems I just didn't know when to stop--something my teachers told me in school, too! Although crochet and other craftiness have always been part of my life, I channeled my energy and creativity into teaching Jr. High and High School sciences for many years.
When I am not "yarning" (as described by my youngest), I treasure time with my family, friends, running, thrift store shopping, and learning new creative skills.

I created this cowl specifically for my daughter who loves stripes of the Tim Burton type. It has texture without bulk, a nice drape, and very soft on the neck. The surface slip stitching adds interesting contrast to the foundation stripes and could be worked up in a variety of color combinations. The cowl is long enough to wrap twice around the neck for extra warmth or can be left hanging long or even wrapped around the shoulders.
This simple, yet detailed 3 page pattern also includes instructions to change the dimensions for a longer or shorter cowl.
The pattern is written in American English crochet terms.
Dimensions: 48 inches (117 cm) in circumference X 11 inches (28 cm) wide
