Popping in to share with you this cute cowl that I recently finished.
I used 2 balls of yarn which have been lingering in my stash for almost 5 years! The lighter blue speckly yarn is Sirdar Americana, and the dark blue yarn is Sirdar Rafaella. I believe both of these yarns to be discontinued since they are no longer listed on the Sirdar website.
The pattern is Linen Stitch Cowl by Esther Chandler. You can find it here.
I love the way there is no need to sew in ends. It is written in such away that the only ends you have to sew in are right at the top and right at the bottom.
I love the way it looks too, the speckled yarn and solid yarn look lovely together.
I did struggle a little on the dark blue rows as the Rafaella yarn had a funny texture meaning it didnt glide so smoothly as the Americana over the hooks.
Its very pretty but also quite repetitive – its good if you want mindless crochet but it took me a while to get it finished as it was boring me arter a row or two. I am glad its finished though.
Therd is a matching Mitten Pattern which I intend to make but I will leave that for a bit.
