monday march 28, 2016: crazy for cowls ~ click here to comment March 28, 2016 09:33
I 'hop' everyone who celebrates had a great Easter weekend!
Here at The Crafty Jackalope we are crazy for cowls! We love them in the winter, in the summer and the seasons in between. Here are a few we are mad about!
If you are looking for a quick cowl to make as a gift I would highly suggest the Capital Cowl V2.0. If you have the yarn already (something bulky weight/12st) then all you need is the pattern. Or you can get the complete kit with yarn and pattern all in a cute 100% cotton TCJ project bag. The yarn the comes with the kit is a beautiful blend of silk and Alpaca and is offered in three colorways: grey; teal & opal.
One of my favorite designs is the Brave Cowl. If you love plaid, this is the cowl for you. It is knit with the delicious Purl Soho Super Soft Merino in 3 colors (sample: Super Pink 1120; Timeless Navy 1580 & Oyster Grey 2080).
Looking for a cowl for the spring/summer months? The Magpie Darling Cowl is airy & light. The original pattern is knit with a strand of sequin sparkle (great for the holiday seasons or to dress up an outfit) but choose any light weight sock yarn in a linen or cotton or a soft merino and it is perfect paired with a t-shirt!
