Brokenhearted

The Name

Brokenhearted by K. D. Lang

I have been told – twice now – that this cowl looks very christmassy. While I have to admit that it does, I named it Brokenhearted because that is how I was feeling during the knit.

Brokenhearted

The Cowl

Dimensions: 11-inch diameter x 20-inch height

Ever since this cold weather set in, I have needed more protection while crocheting/knitting so I decided to make a longer cowl that I could pull up over my head.

Knit in garter.

The Name

Poison Arrow by ABC

Originally, I had named this Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered, as I was having a hard time improvising a chevron design. I finally found a pattern and modified it for my use. Once I started to see the pattern, it reminded me of Cupid’s arrows.

The Cowl

Dimensions: 40-inch Diameter x 7-inch width

Pattern: Granny Chevron Cowl by Zeens & Roger

The pattern was easy to follow. I did not want to make one as wide as the pattern indicated, so it took some time to figure out my starting chain number. After that, I had the pattern in my head by the second row.

Loved the new seaming idea.

I have a friend that expressed interest in this cowl, as I was making it. If she doesn’t want it, it will be donated to charity.
