I don't normally crochet what I would label as "clothes" because I haven't found many crocheted items that I have liked enough to wear.
But then I saw this crocheted scarf cowl pattern in a friend's magazine, so I decided to give it a try.
And I quite like it. It is very cozy around the neck, keeps me warm on these chilly days. (My midwest relatives probably think I'm silly when I say we have chilly days here in northern California, but we really do! It's all relative.)
The pattern is so simple, too. Just eight rows of double crochet, using four strands of yarn at once. The first one was so easy, I decided to make another!
This one is a much brighter color, and I found some awesome large buttons for it.
