Scarves & Cowls Oh My

Yesterday, I went to Joann’s Fabrics because there was a coupon for 50% off all knitting needles and crochet hooks.

Who couldn’t use more needles and hooks?

I also had a 50% off a regular price item.

As I looked at the hooks, I saw Buttercream Thick & Thin yarn and was reminded of All About Ami’s Knitted Thick & Thin Cowl.

For some reason, I have always been drawn to this project.

I wasn’t sure how the available color choices would knit up, so I went the safe route and purchased Stormcloud (grey).

Now that I have completed the cowl, I’ll branch out and try the other colors.

This was such a satisfying project.

I finished it in just a few hours and it is super cute.

I used Clover 10mm 16 inch circular needles (recommended size for the yarn) that I purchased with that fabulous coupon.

I cast on 50 stitches using a long-tail cast on.

I spent a few hours on the deck while the kids played in the backyard.

The cast on edge has a wavy look due to the thick & thin sections and it does roll up a bit, but once I tried it on I realized the roll looks good and is comfortable!

No pictures of me wearing it as it was 90 degrees and I looked like it was 90 degrees out, but here are a few pictures of the cowl:

(the close up photo is the most accurate picture of the color)

My second project is a super (and I mean super) quick and easy sewing project.

I saw this post by Β Delia Creates (Cozy DIY Flannel Scarves).

Super cute!

I found flannel shirting at Joann’s on sale and I had an additional 20% off coupon (seriously, always check the coupons on the website before entering the store, they change quite frequently).

A simple cutting of the two yards, some time with a hot iron and simple straight line sewing created exactly what the title of the post stated-a Cozy Flannel Scarf.

A few more washings and the fringe will be a little longer and look even cuter!

I can’t wait for fall and sleeveless down vests and wool sweaters!

I have enough fabric to make a second one (or maybe a cute fall skirt for Miss ME-please wear skirts again Miss ME)

Have a great week everyone!

    Love the cowl but your link goes to a Harry Potter Pinterest board. I did find the pattern on Ravelry though and I love the Buttercream yarn! With projects like this I may make my Christmas gift giving wishes come true after all! LOL! The scarf is absolutely darling but then I am a sucker for anything plaid and yes….can’t wait for chilly weather! What a midwest, cold loving gal is doing down here in the South is beyond me! LOL! BTW your ads on here make it difficult to comment or is it just me? Try it yourself ………..

      Thanks Sandra-I fixed the link!
      Unfortunately, I have nothing to do with the ads on the blog. WordPress puts them on as I use the free WordPress site 😦

      The cowl was super quick to make and would make nice warm presents!
