I have been practicing making some zig zag, rippled or chevron crochet (psst, check out the chevron mug cozy in my shop ← (I actually created the pattern for this cozy myself).
In the process of learning, I created this cowl neck warmer. I love the colors. I think I will make a matching hat and then Ill be set.
You can find the free pattern for this cowl here.
If you want the pattern for the cozy, leave your email in comments or something and Ill be glad to send it to you.
It took me a couple hours on and off for about three days to make it. It did not turn out as pretty as the one that inspired me. I have always struggled making zig zag stitches as well as granny squares, but that's another post, another day.
This pattern was pretty easy, however, as I was on the last row, I realized I was doing all wrong. Silly me was using half double crochet instead of double crochet. No idea what I was thinking. It caused the cowl to be little wonky but it will work for me.
I think it goes with one of my new sweaters....ok, in an odd way. What do you think?
