I purchased some yarn last year and and have had it on and off the sticks, searching for the ‘perfect’ scarf/cowl pattern. It wasn’t until a very clever friend asked me, ‘What the hell I was doing? Why wasn’t it on the hook?’.
Why wasn’t it indeed?
Three hours later, I have the softest cowl to keep me warm this winter.
I used two skeins of Madelinetosh tosh DK in ink, which is always such a dream to crochet with and a 10mm hook.
Using two strands, I chained about 60-70 stitches. Then, I just kept trebling back and forth until I had run out of yarn, you end up with a giant rectangle.
I then single crocheted the rectangle together and hey presto, cowl complete.
