Crocheted cowl

I guess I've been in a bit of a crocheting mood lately. Maybe it's the cooler weather that has me thinking about warm scarves and cozy blankets. Since it takes me forever to crochet a whole blanket scarves, cowls and other little projects satisfy my craving to create something quick.
After doing the infinity scarves I decided to try a pattern for a cowl. When the wind blows I like to have something extra warm around my neck to keep the chill off.
The pattern comes from Fiber Flux and is called Meringue Cowl

Instead of the yarn called for in the pattern I used what I had. I used two strands, one was Red Heart super saver and the other was a homespun yarn.
 This picture cracks me up because obviously I was confused as to where the camera was. I don't know what the heck I was looking at.

While this cowl is perfect size for an adult, it should be noted that the size may not be suitable for everyone.

Oh Duke, just look at what you have to put up with, the darn dressing up. It is just a tiny bit big for ya. But it sure is pretty. Take care.

Christine said...

Perfect color and so cozy looking! Bet you'll get lots of use from it!

Sandee said...

You are adorable and very talented too.

Duke does not like this dress up thing. I can just tell. Did you really see that look?

Have a fabulous day. My best to Duke. :)

Grace said...

Oh you are looking marvelous!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

You both look fantastic! Beautiful creation and sounds easy too (if I crocheted.)

Ginny said...

Did you snap this yourself? It is a perfect portrait! It is quite hard for me to take my own picture, even in the mirror the camera covers my face! You look just divine and the cowl suits you perfectly. I think these and the scarves would really sell like hotcakes at a craft fair, you would be sold out.

Oh Dukey Pookie....you look so handsome in a cowl scarf! Great color!!

Betsy Adams said...

I love seeing that beautiful woman --with the cowl.... And --Duke is beautiful also!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Donna said...

Lovely color on it, and it looks like it would be cozy warm in the winter! And Mr. Duke looks so unhappy there, I think he deserves TWO biscuits for this modeling gig.

SweetMarie said...

I wish it were cold here so that I needed one. :) You look fabulous! Duke cracks me up!

Amanda Johnson said...

Sheryl Hastings said...

Love this! It does look warm. I see Duke even likes it too!

BeadedTail said...

I've been missing your craftiness so had to look back at what you've been doing and see you've been busy! I love the stick piece and the crocheted scarf/cowl too! What a lovely photo of you and of course Duke is always a handsome model!

Chatty Crone said...

I love both of you in that scarf!

Catherine said...

Oh you both look so warm and cozy!
Yup, going to need those soon.
Happy Sunday Ann and Duke!

What a pretty cowl! I like that color on you! And Duke too haha he is such a good sport.

Sharkbytes said...

That looks quite elegant on you. On Duke it just looks warm.

marie said...

Love this cowl on you Ann...the color is perfect. It's a great photo too!
Duke looks good too. But maybe a tad overwhelmed! :)

Polly Dot said...

This looks so cozy - I could do with one especially when you go to one of those shops that has the air con on icy blast throughout the winter. The card shops over here seem to be the worst for that. This would be ideal when looking for Christmas cards ..
