Crochet Cotton Candy Popcorn Cowl

Crochet Cotton Candy Popcorn Cowl. Buttercream Thick and Thin yarn.

Recently I have started spinning my own yarn from wool, and of course it looks like beginner yarn.  After plying I found that some areas are thick and chunky, while others were thinner than a DK weight yarn.  I thought crochet would be a great way to highlight the weight differences and make the item really textural.  So, I asked myself what I would like out of wool would be chunky and thick.”  A cowl!  After living in Michigan for nearly 20 years (originally from Texas) I have finally come to realize that no matter how warm your coat is, if your feet and head/neck are cold it means you are cold.  So, a thick and chunky cowl made out of wool would be a great item to have for this winter.

Machine Knit Easy Long Summer Scarf

Machine Knit Long Summer Scarf

One thing about so many things that are made from yarn is that they tend to be for cooler weather. This super easy and quick machine knit scarf is great to add a little knit softness to any outfit – even in the summer!  It can be worn like a necklace, or just draped for a light shawl.  Depending on the fiber and yarn thickness you can change what is showcased on this scarf.  I have made a light acrylic accessory that has subtle details, but these subtle details are great for projects with art yarn or when you want color work to be the main visual story.

Crochet Easy Skinny Ladder Scarf

Crochet Easy Skinny Ladder Scarf

This is a great crochet project to use up some of those single skeins we all have around.  It is made with Red Heart Soft (find it here) yarn in Really Red, which makes a great soft fabric out of worsted weight yarn that is comfortable to wear next to the skin.  It is 100% acrylic so no itches if you are sensitive to wool.  But, if you have something that is thicker or thinner, and you want to do a different material content then use it!  Just adjust the hook size accordingly up or down to be able to make your desired scarf.  Gauge is not as extremely important on this pattern since you just keep going till you either A) run out of yarn or B) have it as long as you like.  Yay – no gauge swatch!
