As a child I was curious about most arts and crafts. I started with crochet, then sewing, then on to paper craft, clay craft, painting and baking. I didn't master anything, but I found crochet to be the easiest yet most rewarding.
I retired early in the job that I went to college for; working at home just seemed more practical and natural to my being. In trying times, I turned to crochet as therapy and additional source of income. Since 2005, I maintained my crochet blog and focused on designing crochet wearables and accessories. More about my projects in my blog:
Here's a stylish accessory you can quickly crochet for yourself or for gifting. All you need is one ball of 175 meters cotton thread, or light fingering yarn, and a bigger hook size(E, or 3.5mm), than you would normally use with thread.
Complete written instruction is provided (no chart). You need to know the basic crochet stitches: chain, slip stitch, single crochet, and half-double crochet.
Item is worked continuously in one piece from beginning to end.
This design uses a lot of chains thoughtfully put together to make it behave like a soft fabric. Feel the softness and charm of cotton thread transformed into this cowl, which you will love to wear around your neck. This is a stylish and functional accessory to keep you comfortable when it is slightly cold. It keeps you fashionable too as it either tones down or adds a splash of color to your outfit.
