Q&A with CorrineMB

Wonderful cowl! So perfect for the middle of winter.
CorrineMB answered:
Thank you! It feels unbelievable on! This yarn is machine wash & dry, and gets softer and softer, yet holds its shape. Not bad for inexpensive stuff!

This is so beautiful! I want to reach out and touch it. You mentioned it's a Lion Brand pattern; which one? I couldn't find it. Thanks for posting!
CorrineMB answered:
Oh, you will LOVE your finished project! Look up Crystal Falls Cowl on www.lionbrand.com and havea fun!
Jeffsweetie asked:
Could you share how you modified it? I would love to create a big chunky one like the one you have!
CorrineMB answered:
Yes! It was such a simple mod I can't even call it that. Looks like I went down a hook size or two, because I crochet loose! So an "I" I believe. Chained 47 like the pattern, and then made it suuuuper long. I counted 110 rows before I crocheted the ends together. From now on, I'm making notes when I made anything. (Also, I crochet big, so I often have to make minor adjustments.) This is sooo easy, you'l have fun. If you can find that yarn, it is AWESOME (JoAnn's Fabrics was where I got the Sensations chunky yarn). Soooo soft and with the tiniest halo effect, like fuzzy without the pilling (so far, anyway).

Beautiful! I am inspired...thank you.
CorrineMB answered:
You're welcome! It really is my favorite thing to throw on before leaving the house. So cozy. Like your favorite jeans or fuzzy pajamas. Pure comfort. :)

I am a beginner at crochet. I just get the hang of it, then don't do it for a long time and have to teach myself all over again! But I LOVE this!!! Thanks for putting in up! I'm going to make it!
CorrineMB answered:
Good morning! I love your enthusiasm! This is such an easy project, and works up so quickly. Some crocheters might get a little bored with the very simple stitch pattern, but I found it makes the perfect tv project, or even while my husband drives us around on errands. (This way I let him drive AND don't pick on his driving--because I'm just crocheting along. lol)
