Happy new year! It's a great time for list-makers, like me. I've been out of town enjoying some time with my family and mentally working on my list. Some things "bloggy" but first a bunch of a things "mommy." Not too unusual I bet.
Before the list gets too long (perpetually of course) I am happy to be able to cross off one thing, and that is a Sedge Stitch Cowl in a maxi size. I loved the original one I created mid-December (have worn it more than once in fact) and have been wanting to try it in an even more cozy size.
This is it. It's hard to imagine tiring of this texture. Definitely cozy. Though not all that necessary lately as it turns out. What is with this crazy weather? Granted I'm a bit south of my usual clime right now, but still it's unseasonably warm. I guess we'll just enjoy it!
Heather grey is a color I pick over and over again for sweaters and I love it for this cowl. I used Lion Brand Wool Ease. Makes me think I need more in this color!
This Sedge Stitch Maxi Cowl is part of a pattern I am selling in my Etsy shop. The pattern includes the original Sedge Stitch Cowl too, but it will always be available here in blog tutorial form. In the pattern I threw in a few more extras those newer to crochet may appreciate, such as photos showing an easy way to seam and how to weave in the ends.
If you are interested in the pattern, I'm going to offer it at 30% off for the month of January. Just use the code INTRO30.
Now to the rest of the list. Hope yours is coming along nicely, or that you aren't at all worried about making one if that is more your speed!
