FINISHED PROJECT: Thick & Quick Cowl


The other night I looked at the weather forecast and, in the midst of 88 and higher degree weather, I saw that the next day was actually supposed to be mid-70s and rainy all day. Perfect! A perfect day for a brand new, yummy, cosy cowl that I've been wanting to make. I had bought a few skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Charcoal and was itching to use it up. I ended up using this one plastic hook I have had for I don't know how long and I have no idea what it's size is - P? I think it's a P? Either way, I learned I don't care for crocheting with a plastic hooks...

I used this pattern here for the convertible cowl and it took maybe two hours tops. I used two full skeins, but if I had a third, I'd probably use that, too. I love it - it is so squishy because of the different stitches in different rows, and it hangs so nice when you wear it. Of course, at work - the rain all day made our store incredibly humid and I ended up taking it off within a minute and then sweating to death thanks to my sweater and boot wardrobe choices.


BONUS: Chester modeling my cowl-in-progress while I was taking a little break. Fashionable!

  5. Out of curiosity, do you find wool ease to be itchy at all, due to its wool content? I always personally found it a bit itchy, but am curious of other peeps don't mind it!
