Coping with "Winter's" Chill

Recently I received an order from someone who needs to keep her neck bundled up during the winter months so that she can help prevent her throat from becoming sore.  It's interesting because that sounds so much like me.  People look at me strangely when I'm bundled up with the least bit of a draft.  I've even been known to sleep with a scarf wrapped around my neck.  Yeah, it may be weird, but it helps!  LOL

So, I shared a few patterns I saw with my customer and she decided on this black.  It actually was a really quick crochet.  Like a "less than 2-hour road trip and I was done" kind of quick.  It can be worn open like the traditional cowl, or you can button it up to swaddle your neck in yarny goodness.

This cowl is off to its new owner and I hope it helps beat the not-so-winter-like, winter chill.  (It's more like fall, early spring here.)

Gee.  Now I kinda want one for myself....

Happy Crafting,


  1. Very nice pattern! What yarn did you use?

  2. I like it! Working with black yarn is not very comfortable in my opinion but it looks like you don't have the same problem. :-)

  3. Besides the fact that cowl necks are really in style, that's REALLY CUTE!!! Looks great Libby, again skills :)

  4. Definitely make one for yourself Libby! I love how the stitches are big enough so that the button is adjustable. Cute!!!

  5. Nice job Libby and you know that I love the b & w.

  6. @HeadPatternista: I used Lionbrand's Hometown USA, but any super bulky (5-6 wpi) yarn would do.

    @Alhana: Trust me, I do have that same problem. This pattern didn't cause any problems though because the holes were not easy to miss. But if it had been sc sts....let's just say, I wouldn't be such a happy camper. lol

    @Everyone else: Thank you!

  7. Ooooohhh! That is HOT!! I love the chunkiness of it! Yummy!

  8. I am LOVING that shawl! I am getting totally into shawls, now.
