From the Yarn Basket: Road Trip Project #2

This is a project I'm actually not too excited about. I whipped this cowl up in a couple of hours on the road trip as we traveled through the mid-Atlantic states. Although I like the yarn a lot (Hometown USA from Lion Brand in Washington Denim that my Mom let me swipe from her yarn basket), I wasn't feeling all that inspired. I made it by alternating three rows single crochet with one row triple crochet

It's not a bad little cowl, but it pales in comparison to my awesome red cowl that I love so much. I may actually tear this one apart and try something else with it. It's super bulky weight yarn, so it really has to be used for a hat or a scarf or something warm. Hmm....if anyone has any ideas, let me know (I'm looking at you Emily....).


  1. I thought this little wrap/shrug looked intriguing...
    Not sure how bulky your yarn is compared to what they recommend on the pattern, but I think you could make it work :)
    Here's a hat for thick yarn that looks easy but has some flare...
    **Be sure to click the US and not British pattern directions**
    Let me know whatcha think!

    1. Thanks Emily! I'll let you know what I decide to do. :)
