My first project that I have been working on is a large granny square baby blanket for my new niece or nephew who will be born in August but I felt that I needed some smaller projects to work on that I can finish and get some sense of achievement from finishing.
On looking through the Internet I came across Stephanie’s site. She has some lovely things and this Chunky Cowl caught my attention. It looked an easy enough pattern to follow for a newbie like me so I thought I would try it.
I used a 10mm hook which I picked up in Hobbycraft and Patons Big wool, I crocheted it up over the course of the day with lots of stops in between but it was very enjoyable.
I am really pleased with it, it crocheted up really chunky and once you got used to using thicker wool and a big hook it was really easy.
I have been wearing it loads since I made it and have had loads of compliments for it. I am now planning on making one for my Mum for mothers day which I am sure she will love.
