Crochet Ombre Violet Cowl
Hi everyone! Today I will be showing you how to make this beautiful Crochet Ombre Violet Cowl.
I hope you are well. This week I am bringing to you a new crochet project, which is for a super comfy and chunky cowl. This cowl is soft and and the colours are ultra feminine. The best part is it can be made in under two hours as it is such a quick and easy project to make.
I have a lot more projects coming, so stay tuned for more crochet designs coming this winter.
As always the video tutorial is available on my Youtube channel here: Crochet Ombre Violet Cowl Video Tutorial
A beautful yarn, James C Brett’s Marble Chunky
This cowl was made using James C Brett’s Marble Chunky in shade MC72, which is a variegated yarn mixing blues, lilacs and soft pinks, my favourite colours. This project only calls for a tiny bit of this very big ball of yarn. I was thinking of making a hat or ear-warmers to match. In any case, this yarn is really pleasant to work with, and there are a lot of different colours to choose from, which is a big plus. I loved working on this project, and I hope you enjoy it too.
Lots of projects coming soon
I am currently moving homes with my small baby. I have a lot of projects in the wings for this blog as soon as I have settled down and have more time to write blog posts. Also, I would really like to share with you my love of thrifting, and all the lovely things I have bought second hand or upcycled for my new home!
The pattern for The Crochet Ombre Violet Cowl
The simple pattern is created by altering Single and Double Crochets, creating a slightly rised pattern that is very delicate and pretty.
This stitch is really good because it is tightly woven, and therefore creates quite warm projects. It is called the Rice Stitch in French, however I am not sure what it is called in English, so if you know, please do let me know. I will definitely be using this stitch again, so watch this space.
You can make it for a man just by switching colours
Also, I made this exact cowl for my brother, for Christmas, using a different colour from the James C Brett Marble Chunky range. It came out looking amazing and very masculine, so it’s great to keep this in mind if you are looking for a project for a man.
Let me know what you think in the comments below, and wishing you a lovely week,
