Here is a little something I hooked up on Wednesday; it's an ideal Christmas gift or little something for yourself! Mine is for myself, but there is plenty of yarn left to make another...
It's a cowl inspired by the Cath Kidston colours, crocheted up in just a few hours, making it the perfect weekend project!
The yarn used in this project is Annell Malmedy- 100% wool from the Yvestown Shop. It's bargainous and is soft and delicious to work with. It even smells nice! Weird, right?
I chose the following colours:-
2512 red (A)
2514 yellow (B)
2522 blue (C)
2543 off white (D)
2518 green (E)
2532 pink (F)
The pattern is written in UK crochet terminology:
tr= treble (dc or double for US folk)
tch= turning chain
For the foundation chain: Using yarn A, ch 240 + 3 as a turning chain
Row 1: 1 tr into 4th ch from hook. *sk 2 ch, 3tr into next. repeat from * to end. Work 2 tr into the last ch of the row. Fasten off yarn A. Turn the work so you're now working from right to left again.
Row 2: Join in yarn B. Ch 3 (counts as first tr of row). 3tr into space between 2tr and 3tr of previous row. **3tr into next space along. Repeat from ** to end space. Work 1tr into the top of the tch of previous row. Fasten off yarn B. Turn.
Row 3: Join in Yarn C into the space between the 1tr and the 3tr of previous row. Work 1tr into same space. Repeat from ** to end of row, working 2tr into final space. Fasten off yarn C.
Rows 4-13: Repeat rows 2-3, changing colour at the end of each row. Work 13 rows in total, or more if you'd like a chunkier cowl.
You should end up with a long strip of granny stripe with very straight edges! Take the off-white yarn and sew up the short ends to make your cowl or infinity scarf.
Slip over your head and wrap around to your heart's content. Go forth and be cosy.
