A Little Something New
I was fiddling around with some yarn I had found at Goodwill. It was really lovely yarn. Wool, I think?
You never know with those "lost sheep". :)
It was a nubby yarn, full of thick and thin places, which made for great texture.
Following is the made-up pattern if you'd like a go.
It's great for using up those Goodwill finds or remnants in your stash bin.
Mini Granny Cowl
100-150ish yards of some kinda yarn
Alternate color of some kinda yarn
Size G hook
...and cross your fingers you finish the last row. It's a leap of faith! ;)
Foundation Row: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc into each ch across, turn. ~ 150 sc.
Row 1: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc into same place, *skip 2 sc, 3 dc into next sc, repeat from * across, 2 dc in final sc, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3 (count as 1 dc), *3 dc into next sp between dc groups, repeat from * across, 1 dc in sp by ch 3 at end of row, turn.
Row 3-5: Repeat Row 2. Fasten off, leaving a 6 inch tail.
Sew both ends together. Be careful not to twist the cowl.
With Alternate color, make a knot on your hook. Insert hook into the first sc on the top of your cowl (the last row you completed). Single crochet in that st and each st around the top. Fasten off, leaving a long tail.
Repeat with bottom of cowl.
Weave in ends.
