Quickie Cowls

Pattern: Quickie Cowl by F. Pea (free on her website)

Yarn: Baby Alpaca Grande by Plymouth (110 yds.)

The Quickie Cowl is just that. A very easy 4 row repeat lace pattern which makes a cute cowl.

The cream (White 100) version was done on size 11 needles to make it a little drapier. I also ventured into new territory by using a provisional (crochet) cast on, and then grafted the beginning and end together instead of casting off and sewing a seam. This seems much better for something that will mostl likely twist and turn on the wearer.

The Quickie Cowl in turquoise was actually done first, and followed the instructions exactly (needlesize, bind-off, etc.)

Well, well, apparently somewhere along the line I acquired a second chin. Isn't that just luverly!
