Sandshell Herringbone Cowl

Well, winding my yarn inspired me!! Rebecca Langford over at Little Monkeys Crochet just published a new cowl pattern, Herringbone Buttoned Cowl. I love the herringbone stitch and the cowl looked so cute and easy.

I started this cowl on Saturday and completed it on Monday. I could have completed it in a day probably but I was crocheting in between tasks of packing and normal household duties.

The yarn I used was Cascades Yarn Avalon which is 50% cotton and 50% acrylic. It stitched up larger than what the pattern called for in gauge so I had to adjust my rows and number of stitches to reach the specified size. This will be a staple in my Fall and Winter wardrobe!!

It was such a quick and easy pattern that I have another one on my  hook now. I am using Cascade 220 Sport yarn in a pumpkin spice colorway.



  1. You look great and that cowl suits you perfectly - how fun to get your hooking mojo back!

    1. Thanks Shelley!! There is just something about looking at a bag of yarn that gets me back in the swing of things.

  2. Howdy! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I
    came to give it a look. I'm definitely enjoying the information. I'm bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Wonderful blog and fantastic design.
