As you can see from the image above, you will achieve a different finished object depending on the color runs in the yarn. I find both very attractive.
With the rebranding of Off da Hook Designs to A Hooker’s World, I have made some changes and one particular change is that the pattern for How Deep Is The Ocean Scarf is no longer available for free. The pattern is available for purchase in the AHW Store or in my Ravelry Store or by following the link above to the patterns page. As with all my patterns:
I condone any realized profit from selling your finished project
I ask that you do not duplicate or copy the pattern for dissemination among your friends, as $1.00 is a nominal fee
If you are on Ravelry, I would appreciate your linking your project to this recipe, so I can send a request to feature your finished object

I learned a new way to create crochet ribbing at the last guild meeting. While I am not a fan of this new version, I am a fan of the texture the stitching provides. This cowl will serve as a template for a pattern I will write for some yarn I recently purchased at The Knitting Tree L A. The name – Caribbean Queen by Billy Ocean – was inspired by the colors and the construction. Below you will find a recipe for cowl construction. Should any questions arise, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I used about 1 oz of each color listed above except for the yellow, where an estimation of two ounces is more appropriate since you are using it in two rows.
If memory serves correctly, foundation chain must be odd number for an even number of single crochets around. Foundation chain should be created to desired circumference. In my pattern, I will give exact number for a Mobius this circumference, as this is my desired circumference, enabling the wearer to double it. One of the things I noticed about this design that I did not like was that the row of single crochet on the foundation chain tends to make the Mobius want to fold on itself. My pattern will give provide exact number and hopefully include a video on how to create a double-crochet foundation chain, eliminating one row of work.
Create mobius with slip stitch in bottom of first stitch. Again, I am hoping to provide a video link on how to do this in the pattern.
Alternate front post double crochet and back post double crochet in every stitch around and in every successive row to desired width, closing round with slip stitch in top of beginning chain.
Single crochet final round with color used in last double crochet round.

Having crocheted Sunflower Cocoon/Hat, I thought it would be neat to knit one. Thanks to SarahBea for lending me some 10.5 US Circulars. Going by the dimensions of the Sunflower, I was surprised that this one came out two inches wider. It is shorter by one inch because I ran out of Barrington.
