Remember just before Christmas when all my elves had quit, and I needed a break from the holiday prep, so I started an easy project to reenergize?
Well, here’s the result – a crocheted cowl “scarflette”! It’s just the thing for the chilly winds of January. I hope you can visualize how pretty it will drape on a person by viewing it here on my necklace stand.
Just imagine that there are shoulders on the necklace stand – so the scarf would be stretched a little wider across the neckline. (I knew better than to ask Sir Beads to model it! The man is a prince but he DOES have his limits.) 😉
The pattern (found here) is EASY and quick as a wink to make. I would have shown it to you a while ago, but I needed to shop for the buttons. Although the photo shows them as a lighter shade of purple, in real life they match exactly.
Here it is with the coordinating bracelet.
Next, I’ll make one in a burgundy suede yarn. I still have those crocheted pillows in the queue. Hours! I need hours!
Wow I like this! AND the matching bracelet. Burgundy suede yarn..thats gonna be beautiful. I was crocheting cowls last year. Then I got to thinking about a cowl of fleece and then I saw fleece at Hobby Lobby. Hit me in the head fleece. Tiger striped on hot pink (my new passion-pink) fleece. Thought a minute…I DON’T need it….walk away…turn right back around and buy a 1/2 yard fleece. Should be on my blog later this week.
But, in my determination to destash, when I make the new I will donate two from the hat/scarf drawer.
And then there’s Donna Mae. She posted about a quilt she’s making and I got obsessed about finding a fabric she showed. Leopard print with hot pink hearts. None on line that I can find so that means a trip to JoAnn Fabric.
Bead Happy New Year!!
How pretty. I love capes and scarves (pashminas). But I sure couldn’t visualize the yarn material into something so pretty.
I loved the cowls you made last year!
I have seen a very long cowl in a lightweight flannel that really tempted me, so I can imagine your fleece one will be absolutely gorgeous!!! 🙂
Your scarflette is amazing, I love it. This will definately keep you warm and it is so stylish too.
I hope everyone is staying warm and dry this winter
I’m a fan of capes and pashmina scarves too! I think it’s the “drape” effect you can get from them that calls my name. 🙂
Thanks Kelly! 😀
That is just beautiful!!
I have a friend who loves to crochet things like this. I am going to forward your post to her.
Want to borrow my dress form I got for Christmas? 😀
Oh wow Crystal – that is sooo attractive!
Thank you, Donna!
Oh how fun that you got a new dress form for Christmas! You know, I used to have an old dress form that I bought at a consignment shop. It was kind of a relic really, but I wanted it for displaying my vintage pins. It was a nice idea at first, but after dusting the pins countless times, I realized they’d be better off in a glass-covered shadow box, so I donated the dress form – duh! Wish I had it now. 😉
Thanks Yona 🙂
It feels really snuggly to wear, too!
Hey Carol, hope you can find that material. I left the item # and product name on my blog for you.
Crystal, want to know why I asked Santa for a dress form? Not for dress making. As a coat rack for my crochet scarves. LOL!! Yep. That is the main reason. So I could take better photos. Don’t tell hubby. He has no idea why I wanted it. We will keep him in the dark.
Ooh, ooh, and double OOH!!! This cowl is just beautiful, and the matching bracelet as well! I love the color, Crystal, and the way you added those pretty buttons to the side…and that gorgeous fringe too!
