Crochet: Sedge Stitch Maxi Cowl (Pattern)


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!

You. are. awesomely. talented. :) So I am going to buy this pattern and make me a small one and a super one. And I'm not going to use the discount code, cause you deserve every penny...I finished my snowflake garland following your pattern. I just really love it. Thank you for sharing your creativity always. You make and keep crochet fun and pretty for modern times.

I *heart* this! Thanks so much!!! I will pop over to your shop and get the new pattern! Yay! You are so generous with all your tutorials! Happy New Year! Can't wait to see what you share on your blog this year! I am a list maker - I hope I can get to all the projects I want to get to in this life time! I can happily say, though, that thanks to you, I've gotten to quite a few crochet ones this past year! xoxo

Gorgeous! I love a great chunky crochet cowl!

I've started on working on my maxi...I was using a 9.00 M or N hook, and it was measuring 40 inches instead of 31! So I pulled it apart and started over with an L hook. I think it's going to work better. I hope! :)

Absolutely beautiful! Seriously this is gorgeous! Lol I have made only one scarf, although a lil' short. Sadly knitting and crocheting just doesn't seem the activity for me.

That is a REALLY pretty texture. I think it would be beautiful in a baby blanket too.
