Wave by Oscar Peterson
Relating to the color of this cowl.
Dimensions: 21-inch diameter x 5-inch width
Destination: Interval House
Width does not include six-inch seam…grr! This cowl was stitched using broomstick lace: also known as jiffy lace and peacock eye crochet, is a historic crochet technique from the 19th century which is done using a crochet hook and another long slender item: nowadays, a knitting needle; traditionally: a broomstick was used, hence the name.
This is the second time attempting this technique; the first I gave up on experiencing difficulty with such a large needle and such a small hook. It was very easy this time, due to experience.
