JoAnns Sensations Rainbow Classic Twist in a purple & black twist (more of a light periwinkle)
What was your inspiration?
updated info 1/3/13:
The pattern from Lion Brand. Then I modified it in length because I envisioned an BIG, cozy cowl that I could double up. I crochet BIG, so I went down to an "I" hook, chained 47 like the pattern says, and then I crocheted 110 rows before crocheting the ends together. The pattern says to crochet for 50 inches, but I just kept going because I wanted it long & able to double up easily without it choking me. It is SO cozy!
What are you most proud of?
Finishing this huge cowl! And it is really my go-to favorite! I double it up and it's like wearing a mama's hug, it is that warm and sweet. :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be creative...use the simple stitch pattern (sc in blo) and make your own favorite cowl! Yay!
