I love this yarn, it’s soft, and laced with gold sparkles. It’s dye pattern flows wonderfully from one color to the next, and creates a completely different look with different patterns.
The inspiration for this cowl came with a cool day in the middle of summer and the leaves were falling, I thought hmm, Winter is coming! The colors reminded me of Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones, with her fiery red hair <3. I remembered this Cabaret yarn, full of Fall colors in deep hues. I wanted to create something beginners would enjoy. Hope you enjoy it!
This pattern geared for simplicity, but uses a few different basic stitches and not so basic stitches, like the extended single crochet. However, I have created a couple video tutorials (links are in the file) to help if you are unfamiliar with the half triple or extended single crochet stitches.
DIFFICULTY: BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE
The cowl takes almost two full skeins of Stylecraft, Cabaret, Rain forest colorway, using a 5.5 mm hook (I).
I really love this cowl, and so happy to try something with different stitches. You can wrap it around twice, or three times, but three is little snug. You can also pull it up over your head and wear it like a scoodie/head scarf.
I’m happy to help with any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Find Stylecraft Yarn here: Rainforest or you can buy from Wool Warehouse, I purchased mine from them along with a bunch of other Scheepjes yarn, it is actually less expensive, even though it comes from the U.K. The shipping is reasonable too!
