I’ve been crocheting along with Rachel at Maybe Matilda. My experience in crochet was very limited going into this project. When I was young my mom taught me how to do a basic chain. And a few years ago I got it in my head that I could make a blanket for my cousin’s baby. But reading a pattern sent me to my computer and google so many times that I finally gave up.
Rachel gave great directions. I just didn’t follow them very well. So what you see is the third try. Why is it that so many of my projects are examples of third time’s a charm?
Rather then join the two ends like the pattern called for, I sewed a button to one end with it folded in half long ways.
This way it can be worn like a scarf…
…a long loop cowl like the pattern called for…
…our double wrapped and buttoned for a warm and cozy cowl.
I’m thrilled with how it turned out I’m thinking some family members may get one as Christmas gifts??? Thanks, Rachel, for doing the Crochet Along! Now if only I could have you walk me through every crochet pattern I try… ;)
