|A nice project for when I had a cold and couldn't go skiing.|
Pattern: Wonderfluff Cowl from Knitpicks.com (free pattern!)
Yarn: Wonderfluff yarn from Knitpicks.com - 70% Baby Alpaca , 7% Merino Wool , 23% Nylon
Colorway: 1 skein of Atlantic Heather (blue) and 1 skein of Wellies Heather (black)
Crochet hook: 10 mm
My two skeins were free with Knitpicks orders last fall as a promotion for the yarn, which is new. The yarn is super soft with whisps of fiber in it, almost like a mohair. Since I had two different colors, I decided I'd just make a bold, two-tone look and crocheted with one skein until it ran out and then picked up with the other one.
I'm a beginner at crochet. Two years ago I picked up a book to make Amigurumi (Japanese crocheted animals and toy figures) and I've made about six or seven of them since then. I recently crocheted a basket, which I haven't photographed yet, and I made a hat, but I frogged it because it came out too small. Eventually I want to learn to read charts so I can make some doilies and snowflake ornaments. This scarf was quite easy and a great beginner project.
