meet.make.crochet-along: v-stitch cowl

I have had some yarn sitting in my stash for awhile just waiting to be made into something. When ChiWei from One Dog Woof decided to do a crochet-along for the month of February, I knew I had found the project for my yarn! 



The project for the month was a v-stitch cowl, using one of ChiWei's own patterns. Since the yarn I was planning on using, Wool-Ease Thick and Quick, was already so bulky, I did not double my yarn as the pattern suggested.



I didn't have a photographer handy so I attempted a self portrait. Not my strong suit.

This was a relaxing pattern to crochet, and it was quite possible the fastest scarf I have ever finished! I managed to complete it in one short sitting.


Stella always likes to jump in my photo shoots! Thanks so much for hosting the crochet-along ChiWei!

  2. A great CAL! I did a cowl using Wool-Ease Thick and Quick at Christmas and it was SO satisfying as it worked up so quickly. If that was my cat in the picture, the cowl would be on the paw and ready to be played with!
