Having tired of brioche knit and having been gifted with two skeins of this lusciously soft yarn by my friend Cathy, I decided to crochet this mobius cowl real quick, which also satisfied my need to complete a project. I started with a chain of 200, created a mobius twist, and worked alternating front and back post double crochets, ending with a crab stitch border. This cowl is smaller than I normally like to make them but very cute, appropriate and did I mention soft? It has the feeling of worn jeans and as I was crocheting it, I kept envisioning it with a casual outfit. I love all the texture also.
I asked Cathy if she wanted the cowl to take on her Peru cruise, departing next Sunday. I am kind of hoping she will accept it, letting me off the hook for a shawl out of the rayon-type thread I was originally asked to make. If not, I will create a new post advertising the cowl for sale. I should know on Thursday, when Cathy will have a chance to review the project and decide if she wants it, or not.
The project name Circle In The Sand by Belinda Carlisle – is a selection from my music library.
