Hi! I've been searching and testing out different cowl patterns to sell at local craft fairs, and below are my latest ones. I'm looking for any ideas, still cruisin for more patterns to test, but looking for some feedback before I start banging these things out. Colors? Alterations? I need some feedback! Thanks, new to craftster! <3

(ignore the ends, I got excited and snapped some shots prior to weaving it in)

I found the pattern here http://www.favecrafts.com/Crochet-Hats-Scarves-Gloves/Crochet-Convertible-Cowl, and made the initial row way too big, by like 15 stitches, but I kinda like the XXL feel to it.

Here's my second attempt, which I love! <3 It fits perfectly and the black/natural mix gives it a houndstooth effect! Amazeballs. Sorry for the subtitles, these pics went into my bloggity post. (http://deerabby.org/2012/09/09/houndstooth-gray-convertible-cowls-wpattern-crochet/)



AAaaaaaand my puppy Keiko being left out of the crocheting fun... <3



Do you guys have any other cowl patterns that you love? What do you think? =D
<3 thanks!
xo, abs

A: love the cowls going to try the top one.
B: if you knit the dobbs ferry cowl from lion brand is a nice uber chunky cowl.  I made a baby one with four strands of red heart and size 17 needles.
