crochet cowl1 My Crochet: Super Soft Cowl

Deze haak kap was iets wat ik maakte alleen voor mezelf. Het maakt gebruik van een van mijn favoriete garens en mijn favoriete steken.

Garen

Ik gebruikte Patons Silk Bamboo yarn for this cowl. I love this yarn and definitely want to try other silk bamboo blends. They’re kind of hard to find since most of them also have wool blended in and what I’m looking for is the pure softness of just silk and bamboo together. Ondertussen, I have a bunch of this leftover from an order I placed to make my grote granny square deken so I’m using it for a bunch of stuff. Here I used sapphire for the bulk of the cowl and the light grey for the edging.

Crochet Stitches

My favorite crochet fabric is to do each row by alternating fpdc and bpdc. That’s what I’ve done here. It makes a plush, rich fabric. I did find out that this yarn doesn’t lend itself as well to this stitch pattern as some of the other yarns I’ve used. It gets really heavy so this is a much heavier cowl than what I’m used to. It works for me here because the cowl’s size allows the weight to pool in the center and create that crossed look even though it’s just a circle (not a mobius). I probably wouldn’t use this stitch pattern again with the yarn but I’m happy that I made this. It’s cozy and soft at the same time.
