I've been lusting over a cowl scarf forever, since the little dangly bits on my conventional scarves have been bugging the crap outta me, so I picked up a skein of Thick n Quick an a Q hook on Friday night. Two hours later I had this...



Woo woo blue steel anyone?



Closer.



The "front"



The "back".

I crocheted it in the round. This was my first time playing around with front-post dc and I kind of love it a lot. The texture it creates on both sides is just so pretty.

Its so smushy and lovely. I've been wearing it for the past few days nonstop. Apologizes for the iSight photos...I'm just really lazy.

Surely. I just crocheted my starting chain (slipped it around my neck to see if it would fit, remembering that as I crocheted into it, it would stretch) and joined it. I double crocheted the first row normally, then on the second row, I chained 3, did a front-post double crochet, then a normal double crochet, and just kept alternating. It created a ribby effect. It looks knitted, actually. I was inspired by the Mossy Cowl that someone else had made.
