This cowl is distinctive with a watery wave effect of color, wonderful lightweight yet warm drape, and is quick to work up! Can be worn by anyone--as it contains instructions to adjust the size--and you pick the colorway that suits the wearer! The 6 page pattern calls for only a single skein of yarn. You can print just the two written pattern pages or all six and include the photo-tutorial on how to complete the loopy flower. (It even includes pictures for using a magic ring, in case you haven't tried that technique yet!) The pattern also includes: --a notes section of suggestions, including how to adjust the circumference for sizing to a man or child, as well --a special stitches section --a picture section showing the details of making the loopy flower This pattern is written in American English crochet terms.

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.
