I used a pattern called mossy Cowl from interweavecrochet.com.  It was my first time using FPdc or FPtc and I love it!! it's such a beautiful stitch compared to the regular dc and tc.  I only did the first 13 rows of the pattern and used a size N hook with homespun.

Hmmm...I've been "googling" and searching Craftster for Cowl patterns.  I found one free pattern designed by Katie Himmelberg but it uses FP stitches and I wasn't sure if I could do it or if I liked it til I saw this  Smiley  It has such a pretty look!!  I love the color of your yarn, too!

Edit:  Okay, so I started to make this... I just loosely chained 76 (I have a huge head) and then went and dc all the way around and saw I had twisted the flippin' stitches.  Angry  I had to frog it and I'm starting over.  How weird would it look if I made a rectangle then sewed it together??

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

Okay, another update...
I made the same cowl you made  Wink I just didn't realize it.  The one I made for me is just some tan colored yarn I had laying around and I screwed it up really badly in one area, so I just turn it to the back and voila! No one notices.  Everyone loved it so much that they started asking me to make them one, so I almost finished one for my mom tonight, but I ran out of the yarn, so I started to make the one for my stepdad (yes, a man wants one, too!) but I also ran out of the yarn color (it was supposed to stash-bust! Now I have to go buy!) 

Then I started one using the Lion Brand ribbon stuff of which I had fifty balls laying around.  I'm almost done with that one but had to take a break to surf Craftster and eat some pie.   Cheesy

Does your Homespun cowl 'stick' to your neck at all?  I have a ton of it laying around.  Approximately how much of it did you use?  I have 1 skein of about 15 different colors, so is it a one-skein wonder (I guess is my question)??

I might have to try making one of those. Yours looks fabulous. You did a great job.
