I've had a strange year so far, and to be honest, completely forgot I signed up for this stashdown, but I had so much fun being a part of this last year - when I shared my Whimsical Sashay Cowl - so when I got a reminder email recently, I got to town on my design. To find out more about The Holiday Stashdown 2016 and get a complete schedule of pattern releases, check out my Holiday Stashdown CAL Announcement. Materials: - Less than 106 yards of Super Bulky Yarn - I used less than one skein of Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick n Quick in the Barley colorway - M13/9mm Crochet Hook - Tapestry Needle for Sewing and Weaving in Ends Material Notes: I was given this yarn as a gift. It had been sitting in my car waiting to be used when I thought about this cowl. Dig through your stash and find some super bulky yarn you have been waiting to use, or wanting to destash. I think Bernat's Blanket Yarn would work, two strands of worsted weight yarn held together or even three strands of lightweight yarn held together - get creative! Time Spent: I had my cowl ready to wear in about an hour. This PDF contains 3 pages and 1 photo. Pattern is available for free on my blog, but there isn't a printer friendly option without this $2.00 fee to compensate for the loss of views when you no longer need to return to the blog.

I can be described as a “craft, coffee and cat addict”. I began my crafting journey more than 10 years ago with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thanks Aunt Arlys!). In 2014, I jumped head first into crocheting and jewelry making, and my blogging journey as EyeLoveKnots, named in honor of family members affected by Retinoblastoma - a cancer of the eye. I currently craft part time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback - hoping to make it to full time soon! I can also be found on, where I have begun a craft directory!
