The Floridian Cowl

yarn bee cowl crochet

Spending way too much time at hobby lobby has become a problem for me.  I can’t resist checking in every other week to see what new yarns they have stocked up. That 30 % off all yarn sale is not easy to resist and my yarn cabinet is getting pretty out of hand.  A while back, I picked up this yarn bee sweet divinity because I love this Lavender color.  Get the sweet divinity here. I only had 1 ball so I decided to make this light spring time cowl.  I know, it’s not springtime yet, not even close. But I wanted to use this yarn and the weather rules don’t apply to us Floridians. It’s our tradeoff for never being able to make a snowman.

I’m loving the softness of this yarn and it is super easy to work with. The quality is what you would expect with Hobby Lobby yarns, I have never come across one I didn’t love. Buy your yarn for this project right here at Hobby Lobby.

A beginner should have no problem making this project. The pattern consists of mostly single crochet and chain stitches. It also features an extended single crochet, which is a useful stitch to learn if you don’t already know it.  Extended stitches are just going to add a little extra height to your work and they make for a really pretty finished crochet piece. This yarn is not going to crochet itself, let’s get making!
