i'm hooked

Well, I wish I was talking about my crochet hook. That hat is giving me troubles. (Insert bug-eyed emoji here. -I use my emoji's so much that I miss them in this space!)
But this cowl?!  Such a joy to make.  Super fast AND easy on the wallet.    
All the things that make you feel great.  So great, that I think I took about 100 photos of them.
I'm thinking I will just make them just to give them away.  To make others feel great, too. 
You know, spread the joy!
I think they would make a perfect Christmas gift, also.

Pattern:  Drop Stitch Cowl
Yarn:  Lion Brand Wool-Ease

Amy at love made my home said...

They look like they are lovely and warm and snuggly! I am sure that anyone would love one as a gift.

Alicia said...

Nothing like an instant gratification project!

Frances said...

Oh, I do think that you might be right about the gift potential.

Each color is fabulous. Cosy? Oh yes.

Priscilla said...

Such beautiful work. Thanks so much for sharing these cowls. Now I know what I'm going to make my friends for Christmas.

Anita said...

I love your cowls and the colours are gorgeous. I wish sometimes we had winter season over the Christmas break, it would be fun to make cowls and scarves and give them as Christmas gifts.
Cheers, Anita.

It is wonderful to see your knitting again. I've been missing my Leslie fix.

so so cute!

seashoreknits said...

Adore!
And love the colors you chose.

Beautiful! Just checked the pattern...just curious, did you add any additional stitches to the cast on? Thanks!

susie said...

cute! I'm still a much faster crocheter than knitter, I'm thinking I could work up something very similar using single and triple crochet. Really love the colors you chose.

Claudia said...

What a great cowl pattern-thanks for posting (I think). I just ordered 16" 15 needles, and picked up some Wool Ease chunky yarn. You have much better color choices than here. Knitting will commence once the needles arrive!

Hilary said...

Oooh, very cool! I love a chunky cowl!

gorgeous! off to find the pattern - such a great gift idea :)

Kelli said...

And now I want to stop the cowl I'm almost finished and make this instead...

Just finished one in a deep plum color. Love it! And finished it in one long evening. I too am hooked.

Stella said...

Thank you! Nice idea for my sister which can be a gift to me!

ridgegirl said...

I whipped one of these and just love it! Definitely on the list of Christmas gifts to give. Thanks for sharing.

Charlotte said...

I like the look of cowls. Every time I come by neat patterns I save them for later, but I never make one because I'll never wear it.
The gift idea is great though, so these are on my Christmas to-do list! :-)

PS.
Do you know someone who crochets? Something just clicked for me when my friend showed me how.

K and I made one of these when she was here visiting! It was so quick and fun! Thanks for sharing...I'm on my second one now. I found some super fun yarn at Joann's that has a metallic thread through out it!

Karen said...

You're so nice, giving people things to make happiness. I've been eyeing that cowl. But what I really love are that girl's lips. When's she going to publish a pattern for gorgeous lips?!
