Doublestrand Infinity Cowl


One Dog  Woof sponsored a crochet a long back in February and I decided to take part as it was a simple Infinity Cowl.  ChiWei hosted this cal with tutorials over a period of a few weeks so that those wanting to learn to crochet could join in.  I already crochet but enjoy having a simpler crochet pattern to work on in the evenings so I decided this would be a good one since I haven't made a cowl before.



Made with doublestrand

Made with singlestrand
I ended up making two the same, but different.  One using 2 strands of yarn held together as the pattern called for and one using a single strand of yarn for a less bulky feel and look.












You might want to head on over to One Dog Woof and have a look at all the other cowls made by a group of very crative ladies.  She has a linky party going on through Sunday.  Check it out, I'm adding my cowl to the party!!!CAL Linky Party


Are your Hooks Happy?

Hope you are having fun
