About the design…

When I came up with the design idea for the Heywood Cowl crochet pattern I wanted to design something unique but easy to make. I also wanted it to be something you’d want to make for yourself now that the holidays are over.  I would rate this pattern as easy. The cowl features fun stripes and the way I designed it you don;t have to worry about having a million ends to weave in (something I’m always worried about!).  You’ll need to know how to chain and single crochet. You will also need to know how to work a spike stitch and change color but that will be explained in the pattern.

About the yarn…

I  wanted this crochet design to use only a couple skeins of yarn with 1 skein being more colorful one skein being solid. My thought was it would be great use for all those beautiful hand painted sock yarns out there.

What you’ll need…

Yarn

Color A: 1 skein of Cloudborn Fibers Merino Superwash Sock Twist in Espresso Heather ( 80% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Polyamide; 467yds/427m/100g; sock/fingering/1 weight)

Color B: 1 skein of Cloudborn Fibers Merino Superwash Sock Twist Handpaints in Josh’s Cat ( 80% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Polyamide; 467yds/427m/100g; sock/fingering/1 weight)

Hook

G/4.0mm Furls Streamline hook (or hook to obtain gauge)
