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.
