Strata Cowl - free crochet pattern by Make My Day Creative - Tunisian Crochet

Strata Cowl

This is my first proper make using Tunisian crochet.  It’s really a stitch sampler cowl because I wanted to try out lots of stitches, but was a bit fed up with swatches so I just experimented on a slightly larger scale hoping to make something wearable! I was intrigued to try Tunisian in the round…

Bubble Wrap Crochet Cowl

  This cowl was one of my husband’s Christmas gifts so I have been waiting to share it for a while.  When I was making the plaid cowl for my brother I fell a bit in love with this yarn.  Not a surprise because I am a fan of chainette construction yarns.  (Read more about…

Linen Stitch Cowl Mk 2

I have been wearing this Linen Stitch Cowl and Linen Stitch Gloves set a lot so far this winter.  It seems to go with a lot of things in my wardrobe and is snuggly and comfy to wear.  I’ve been getting annoyed when the weather is too warm to wear them! I really loved the…

Scarf and Cowl Patterns

As you may remember from my earlier post on bracelet patterns, I’m currently going through my old posts and adding pdf downloads to my patterns (in both US and UK crochet terms). As the weather seems to have turned chilly recently, I thought I’d move on to these scarf patterns instead.  And I included the…

Love a matching set! :)

Easy Textured Cowl

As promised, here is the matching Cowl to my Easy Textured Fingerless Gloves, which I posted last week. Once I had decided what to do with this yarn this set worked up nice and quickly, and are keeping me lovely and warm this November.  I’m actually wearing them indoors to save putting on the heating…

Triangular Cowl

I’ve made a few of these multi-yarn cowls recently so wanted to go for something a bit different.  I made this as a Christmas gift for my brother (who writes awesome music, check it out on youtube here).  I like the texture of the post stitches and the colour combination. The pattern starts off in the…
