Depending on the weather or climate you may just need a bit of warmth around your neck. You don’t want a big , thick scarf or cowl. Just something easy and light. Smaller cowls and neck wraps can be fun to make and if you crochet them they are really quick. Good way to use up oddments, too. Christine made a lovely, lavender neck wrap and it looks visually appealing. It’s the colour and then the lacy effect. She made it up herself. Why not? Just get your hook and yarn out and crochet whatever you want and the way you feel like it. It’s a nice creative exercise and also a way of freeing up your mind. No pressure.
Marina crocheted a cowl from her spun fleece which Alexis had dyed. She added some beads and a lacy edge. That’s another thing you can play around with when you are making a smaller neck wrap. Look at ways of edging or embellishing it. You get to see the effect without committing yourself to a big project.
The Happy Unraveller shows you how to make an easy cowl and then you can use your skills and ideas to make it visually more interesting if you want to.
