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.
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.

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.
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.

Killer Queen by Queen
Formerly known as Magnificent Seven until I realized a killer queen would be more likely to employ a henchman that would actually have cause to wear an executioner’s hood.
Dimensions: 26-inch width x 23.5-inch height
I have been wanting a hood for a long time, as it keeps me warm during these freezing months in my un-insulated home. And this one certainly works just fine for me. I had started a project like this previously, but I had started at the neck and it was not snug, and an ugly color, and I just didn’t like it, and I finally donated to charity. Anyway, I started this one with the hood which I intentionally made extra deep and big. I used the moss stitch because I really like that one.
The collar was a bit tricky, not knowing whether to start from the beginning of a standard circle formula or to work into the circle pattern, as if continuing. I made the right choice in continuing, but only complicated things by trying to continue working in moss stitch. Working one side removed all the desired texture. Did the last row in half-double-crochet, hoping to round the points and relieve the curl.
The collar is a different color, as I had been working with scrap yarn to get the design down.

The collar is most likely Homespun also, but without a label, I can’t be sure.
Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
Dimensions: 29 inches squared; 16-inch depth from point of intersection
I should’ve followed the pattern, but wanted a bigger bag, as I am a big guy, homeless people have a lot of stuff to carry, and the other guild members could use this bag considering the amount of yarn I see them lugging around the meeting.
Destination still to be determined.
