We are so excited to release the Sweet Treat Cowl as our October Blog Exclusive pattern. The Sweet Treat Cowl is a warm and stylish cowl designed to insulate you from the winter weather. It’s a quick project that you can crochet in one sitting with just 20 rows of stitches. We hope you enjoy the Sweet Treat Cowl as much as we enjoyed designing it. Make sure to take a look at some of our other confection inspired color combinations.
October Blog Exclusive
Join us for the October Blog Exclusive. It’s a perfect quick crochet for the fall season. The Sweet Treat Cowl is an intermediate crochet pattern that uses a combination of stitches to create amazing textures and is worked using 2 strands of yarn throughout
Choose your favorite 3 colors (check our recommended color combos below), and purchase 2 balls of Mary Maxim Maximum Value Yarn in each color. We recommend this as opposed to estimating yardage and winding separate balls for a few reasons. First, although the gauge isn’t critical for this design, the puff stitch uses a lot of yarn which can vary from crocheter to crocheter. Using a single ball of each color may cause you to run out of yarn even though we’ve estimated our usage at approximately 300 yards of each color.
We also used 2 different size hooks for this pattern. Most of the stitches are crocheted with the US L (8.00 mm) hook; however, we used the US Q (16.00 mm) hook for our modified puff stitches. You will need both hooks to achieve the texture in this design.
