Lily Cowl Crochet Pattern
Hi all! I hope you’re enjoying this chilly weather as much as I am.
If you’ve kept up with my latest post, you know all about my FREE yarn box from MakerU. Every subscription to MakerU receives a free box of over $100 worth of yarn and I was lucky enough to snag one of my own.
I’ve been so inspired by all of these unique and colorful yarns I received. And I’ve been stitching up projects like a mad woman. I’ve even been experimenting with some new stitches, such as the shell stitch in my new Simple Shells Light Wrap. It’s perfect for a walk outdoors or to take on vacation.
Well, I wanted to share my latest creation with you too. I tested out the intricate Lily of the Valley stitch in my Lily Cowl. This stitch is so easy. It’s only a series of double crochets in a one-row repeat. But it looks complex and impressive.
And the detail of the stitching looks beautiful with the Karaoke yarn from my box. It only took about 440 yards of yarn, so it’s a quick and easy pattern to stitch up. I initially liked this yarn because my daughter’s favorite color is purple, and I knew she’d love whatever I made. And I had 4 skeins of it, so it was perfect!
The yarn has a subtle gradient, which adds a rich dimension to the cowl. The Karaoke is a soy silk/wool blend. It’s soft and great for felting too. And it comes in a ton of vibrant shades.
It would make a great gift this holiday season, or keep one for yourself. It’s perfect for chilly weather and the color is beautiful on anyone.
You can get a bunch of your own surprise luxury yarn by subscribing to MakerU here. When you sign up you get a box of over $130 of luxury yarn shipped to you for free. Every box of yarn comes in a ton of various fibers and colors. You can use some of it to make the Lily Cowl or who knows what else your yarn may inspire! I still have a couple of ideas myself.
