On my hook - a twisted cowl.

I finished this twisted cowl last week and I know I say it each time I crochet something, but I loved making this, it really was a joy to pick up and work on.  I made it especially for my lovely sister-in-law who celebrated her 50th birthday yesterday.  I loved sifting through the yarn at the local yarn store, picking out the colour I thought she would like, choosing the type of yarn, and browsing online for the right pattern.

The pattern is a fan stitch and done with a 180 degree twist on a 5mm hook so it's nice and chunky.  I absolutely LOVED the yarn too - a superfine Merino (Zara brand) which was incredibly warm and soft, just perfect for wearing around your neck.   The photos really don't do the colour justice - it is such a gorgeous blue and suited her perfectly.

What's been on your hook lately?

  1. Ohhhh this is SO lovely Tina! I love the delicate effect of shell patterns... I am sure its recipient loved it :)

  2. Looks great. I can knit but not crochet, maybe I should learn one of these days!

  3. The cowl is absolutely gorgeous! Your sister in law is very lucky. xxoo

  4. Oh! It's posts like this one that make me wish I was craftier. This is beautiful. I also had a bit of a blog stalk and I love the little pink pixie hat you made as well! x

    1. Thank you Lisa. My daughter isn't a fan of the pixie hat though - she won't keep it on her head and now it's getting a bait small. Oh we'll, a good excuse to make another one :)
