I think I've also found a new favorite yarn. I used Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn for the cowl and LOVED it! The colors are awesome and the yarn is soft, has great drape and has a beautiful roving look (easy on the pocket book too - which is nice)
I mean...look at these great colors (these color snips were taken from Here)
It has too amazing gray colors and all the bright happy colors you colors you could want. I want to make some cowls for my daughters with the pink(ish) and Taupe(ish). For the cowl pictured I used Grey(ish), Gun Metal(ish), Magenta(ish), and Olive(ish).
Here are some more pictures of the cowl.
This pattern comes in four sizes: Toddler, Child, Teen/Woman and Men
Pattern is EASY and all you'll need to have is an I hook some worsted weight yarn.
Pick your poison. Crochet patterns are not poison though.
I'm Tara and crochet makes me happy!
