I was feeling the need for a Tah-Dah around here so I made this today. I've had this yarn in my stash for a while and had no idea what I was going to make with it. This is a really pretty stitch pattern, but it doesn't show up in this variegated yarn. I'll be making another one in a solid color, but I really like these colors so I went ahead with it. This yarn has been discontinued and is no longer available. Boo-hoo.
Pattern: Soft Stitch Cowl, a free pattern HERE.
Yarn: Bernat Cottontots in Doll House, worsted weight, 300 yards (2 skeins)
Hook Size: J
My Notes: I chained 159 to begin because I wanted more room in the neck so I wouldn't feel claustrophobic when I wore it. I'm on the tallish side at 5'8". I like a lot of neck room. Check your starting chain by doubling it around your neck before you begin Round 1 to make sure it's the length that will be comfortable for you. Chain any number divisible by 2 and then add one chain before beginning Round 1.
A good replacement and similar yarn to Cottontots is Lion Brand Nature's Choice Organic Cotton. They have lots of solid color choices.
Have a great weekend.
Mine will be rainy and cool. Yipee!
Perfect crocheting weather and the Captain is working.
Don't be surprised to see another one of these cowls before it's over.
