::Watercolor Waves Cowl--Free Crochet Pattern::


I'm back after a wonderful long weekend with my daughter. I apologize that it has taken me longer to get this ready for you than hoped. But mainly because I had to make TWO of these
lovely creations.


Yes. I had to make two so that I could play with the colors. Ohhhhh, they really make me happy! I wore the brightest one today with an all black and white outfit--quite striking if I do say so myself.





So comfy. So lightweight yet warm. So quick to work up. It is ever so simple. 


The pattern for the cowl and flower is available on Ravelry here and Craftsy here for free download. You can print just the written portion (2 pages) or the whole thing with its 14 tutorial pictures (6 pages). 



I love the flower so much I'm thinking of making a coverlet with multi-colored loopy joined flowers for my bed. If I do, I will share with you the join-as-you-go method I am holding hostage in my head--so be certain to check back.




I used Lion Brand Amazing yarn for these two cowls--less than one skein each. The long runs of color work up so beautifully for that watercolor effect and the drape is perfect. They make it in so many colors you're certain to find a skein that perfectly suits your style.

These are the two colorways that I used:
 Love the brights--especially since neons are so hot right now!
Get your yarn. Grab your I (5.5mm) hook. Download the pattern. Enjoy your hooky time. Wear your awesome cowl. Make a statement. Be AWESOME!!

If you haven't kept in the "Button" loop, please stop over to my Facebook page here and keep updated on the colorful and fun free patterns. I announce discounts on my other patterns there, too! And you can follow this blog on Pinterest for updates and pictures of my projects here.

Be well, my friends.

I have used the lion brand yarn before but I felt it to be scratchy. the red heart is available at walmart and is a beautiful colorchanging softer option. you get 280 yards for under $5. came out beautiful.i used petunia, my sister loves purples and its for her. thanks for the pattern! love it!

    1. Kathy, that's a fabulous idea! I love that yarn and it is softer than the Amazing. I made a different cowl with a free pattern from that very yarn in Parrot. You can see it here...http://www.feltedbutton.com/2013/08/crochet-design-and-vintage-find.html
