Lost my cro-jo for a while, I don’t think there was any particular reason for it but I’m very happy it’s back! I picked up a hook last night for the first time in weeks, deciding that I really really really need to start using up some of my stash.
A couple of months ago I got this Sirdar Gorgeous Ultra Super Chunky yarn, it’s 51% wool and 49% acrylic. It’s lovely and soft, and I love the dark grey charcoal colour. I have so much yarn stashed in various boxes and cupboards, but I didn’t have any of this – so I was powerless to resist!
The result was this cowl which only took a couple of hours to make. I chained enough so that when joined it for over my head, joined the chain with a slip stitch then did six rows of trebles. The yarn was easy to work with, although it did tear a couple of times when I made it into a ball (it comes as a hank).
This was the first time I’d crocheted with yarn thicker than chunky, and I’ll definitely try it again – I loved how quickly the cowl worked up, and really like the look of the stitches. Now into anther project!
