30 Minute Comfy Cowl



        While I was at a craft fair not to long ago, I started a scarf.  It was so think and comfy.  It took the whole weekend to finish.  It was made from Hometown USA and it was about 16 inches wide and 7 foot long.  Once I got it home I tried it on and realized that scarfs are sooo not my style.  I ended up scrapping it for this lovely cowl.  I called it the 30 Minute Comfy Cowl.  I realize now that it takes a little longer for most people to crochet.  So now I am trying to come up with another name for it.  Do you have any suggestions?  So far the only suggestion I received is 1 hour and 57 minute Cowl hahaha.  I don’t think that will work too well.  I keep trying to think of a name and I can’t think of anything!  So now it is up to you.  I am asking you to make it and let me know what you think of it.  I love feedback!  Also suggest a name!

    How about “Comfy Cowl – weekend project” I crochet fast and obviously so do you. I think most people could finish this in a weekend. Thanks for the pattern, Debbie

    I can picture this a a lovely blue shade, and it reminds me of the gentle waves of an ocean…I’d call it “Gentles Waves Cowl” ;)

    I made this in an afternoon. I decided not to use the buttons, and instead sewed the two ends together. I also used some handspun wool I have had for several years. It worked up great! Thanks for the pattern.

    I am blogging about it on my website. I will post my link here when I am done, and will link back to you.

    I would suggest “small wave cowl”..? At least something about the ‘wavy’ thing, which seems to have come to everybody elses head as well.. I’m not sure if I’m able to use this english instruction, but will save it to have a look. Thanks for sharing. :)

    I don’t know about the name, but this is just what I was looking for! A pretty cowl pattern using Hometown! I bought bunches of it to make cowls for my 4th grade girls for Christmas this year and this is perfect! Even if it takes me two hours each it’s perfect! LOL! Maybe ‘perfect cowl’ :)

What do you think?
