The black and grey cowl was made using Vanna's Choice yarn by Lion Brand, the color is charcoal print, I used a size K (6.5mm) crochet hook and the following pattern. It reminds me of the granny stripe blanket I made last summer. This is a long cowl so when you wear it it needs to be doubled.
Here is what it looks like close-up. I love the colors of this yarn!
The Grey Cowl was done using another Vanna's choice yarn, the color is grey marble. This was made using a size K (6.5mm) crochet hook and the pattern found at here. This cowl was easy to make and is shorter so you can just put it on.
This yarn has a great texture and was easy to work with!
I was looking for something a little different and could not find anything so here is something that I hooked up:
The Garden Lattice Cowl
The pattern uses a bulky yarn (5), I used Deborah Norville, Serenity Chunky Weight Yarn.
