Chunky Cowl Scarves

Poodle Yarn Cowl

So, I was in Michaels one day wandering around and fell in love with this Poodle yarn. I’ve been seeing lots of chunky infinity and cowl scarves and thought even with my limited crochet and knitting skills , I could do this. This yarn proved a little more of a challenge than I thought. First plan was to crochet it. Plan FAIL. Knitting worked much better.

I cast on about 10 stitches and then just knit two skeins worth and sewed the ends together.

LIke a lot of crafty people, I buy supplies without really having a project in mind. OK just go along with me and tell me I’m not the only one who does that.

I had some chunky textured yarns I picked up somewhere along the way and since I still wanted to crochet an infinity scarf, played around with it. This one’s for a family friend who loves color. These colors remind my of changing leaves and Fall.

I didn’t have enough of either yarn to make it as thick as I wanted so I used to two different yarns. I like the effect when you twist the scarf. For this one, I crocheted about 160 stitches, joined in a circle then just double crocheted until I felt it was done.

Gorgeous! I loooove the two-yarn effect. I constantly buy things without knowing what I will use them for - sometimes, without even knowing what they are! You are not alone.

I am very impressed! You are much braver than I am. And yes, I buy stuff without having a CLUE what I'll use it for! You did a great job!

Both scarves are so cool. And yes, I buy stuff that I'm not sure how I will use it. I also start projects that take me a long time to finish.

I just made an infinity scarf on Saturday. Turned out pretty cool. They are fun to make and I think they may end up being Christmas gifts.

Beautiful scarves! I agree with you that the colorful looks like fall leaves :) Yes I do buy stuff, especially yarn, without having a clue what I am going to do with it. In fact I bought some once and by the time I decided what to do with it, I did not have enough and could not find more :( I am going to be looking for poodle yarn now - I am thinking a cowl and matching wristlets!
