After the success of making my first wrist warmers, I then turned my mind onto a new cowl. You may remember this one from last year - I always regretted not buying the black version at the time. So I took a closer look at the cowl and decided again to try and crochet one myself. I used just the simple double crochet stitch but to get the chunkiness I wanted, I used the thickest yarn I could find with a 9mm Brittany hook. The yarn is particularly beautiful, I managed to find some in both the black I wanted and also a navy that I don't already have. They're each taking between 400-600g of wool, to be able to achieve the volume that I want. One is a dark charcoal colour with flecks of blue/grey and the other a deep navy blue with lighter flecks. So I have finished the navy, along with some more arm warmers. The dark grey I hope to finish very soon!
