Last month I posted a picture of a new cowl design I had made for myself. The Batik Cowl has already become a firm favourite. At the weekend it is almost permanently around my neck. Cosy, cosy, cosy.
I have at last written up the pattern and posted it for download on the LoveCrochet site. It is a simple corner-to-corner crochet design. But don’t be fooled there are a lot of ends to sew in. The Batik yarn from Stylecraft is fabulous to work with. I am a huge fan. I decided that I could create another colour combination. So the image above is my jewel colourway. Perfect for fans of pinks. purples and blues.
If you are frightened of working the corner-to-corner pattern, don’t be. There are some good tutorials available and I would recommend this tutorial on the Crochet Now Magazine site. I will be adding this cowl to my Christmas gift stash. Hopefully it will find a happy and welcome home.
