Crochet Bobble Cowl by Kayleigh
After the successful creation of my first cowl I decided to make another one. This time I used a pattern by Emma Potter. It uses bobble stitch and three different colours.
I used Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky in the colours: Spearmint Green (325), Pistachio Green (324), Seafoam Blue (331). I used 3 Spearmint Green, 2 Pistachio Green and 1 Seafoam Blue all in 100g balls. I also used a 7mm hook. Paintbox yarns worked really well in this scarf. It is really soft and warm perfect for winter.
This cowl was harder than my previous scarf and takes a while. I spent a few weeks working on it. Although, I wasn’t working on it constantly, so for an experienced crocheter it should only take just over a week.
Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky (shade - Spearmint Green (325), Pistachio Green (324), Seafoam Blue (331).
3, 2 & 1 x 100g (3.5oz/149yds/136m) balls.
Weight category: UK Chunky [US 5/Bulky/Chunky].
Tension/gauge: 14 stitches x 20 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 6mm/UK 4 [US J/10] hook.
The crochet hook Kayleigh used was a 7mm/UK 2 [US 7].
I would give the Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky yarn a 5 out of 5 for the following reasons:-
- It was easy to work and worked up quickly;
- There is a large choice of colours available;
- The feel of it was extremely soft;
- The cost of yarn is very reasonable - I paid about £2.25 per 100g ball and you get a lot on a ball;
- Would I use this yarn again? YES, DEFINITELY.
May all your crafting wishes come true...
