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.

Cowls are a perfect "stay where you put them" accessory! As a lover of all things colorful, I decided to play with the same color family in various shades to create the ombre look of this cowl. The string effect makes it lightweight and airy while still keeping you cozy in style.
This simple, yet detailed 3 page pattern also includes pictures to get you through any tricky spots. It also includes the 5 yarns I used, but you can work it up in any five colors you choose to make it suitable for a man. It would be beautiful in a range of neutrals--black, charcoal, gray, cream and white.
The pattern is written in American English crochet terms.
Width = 7 inches (18cm)
