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.

With a subtle color-changing primary yarn and 4 coordinating yarns held two together at a time, this cowl works up speedy quick and is a great stash buster. It's versatile as it can be worn in a loop with or without buttons or crossed with the buttons in the front.
This detailed and simple pattern includes 3 pages of instructions to make a cowl for you or to give as a gift. Additional yarns are provided for a second colorway, as well as instructions for easily adjusting the width and length of the cowl so it can be adapted for any size--even a toddler!
This pattern calls for 1 skein of the primary yarn and much less than one skein of each of the 4 secondary yarns. You will also need two 2 inch (5cm) buttons (optional).
This pattern is written in American English crochet terms.
