This week my project on the hook was the Cozy Fringed Cowl.
The pattern is available for free at Yarnspirations and there's also a video tutorial on YouTube by B.hooked Crochet.
I chose to make my version with Patons Smoothie DK yarn. The colours are Slate (01088) and Lilac Mix (02019) ... the same colours I used for my version of the Merry Christmas Mitts. I used a 5mm hook.
The pattern says it is for beginners. I'm not a beginner and I found it challenging at times, simply because I kept getting the wrong number of stitches ... I persevered and finally completed the crochet part.
The fringe was quick and simply to do. I used one piece of Slate and one piece of Lilac Mix for each tassle.
Despite it taking longer than I had hoped (I'm not the most patient of people), I do like the finished piece and I can see myself wearing it in the Spring with a plain white t-shirt, jeans and cowboy boots.
