FINISHED PROJECT: Fake-Broomstick Crochet Rainbow Cowl


I love Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn. Love it. LOVE IT. I already made one scarf with the Candied colorway and I knew that I wanted to do something different with the Parrot color. I browsed around for a while for some different stitch patterns, but ended up going very simple. I used the entire skein and just single crocheted across with 16 stitches in a row using a P hook. It took foooorever, but it makes a really cool fake-broomstick lace effect when you stretch it out. I can wrap it around at least four loops and it is so soft and rainbow-y cute. I have one more skein of this color and am not sure what to do with it. Any suggestions?

  1. I LOVE it! I did that with some expensive yarn I was gifted for the holidays - just a triple since the yarn was super thick - and large hook. This one looks fantastic on you and the colors are divine - i love that you can wrap it several times!
