Scalloped Cowl

Pattern: Scalloped Cowl from Lion Brand (sign in required)
Yarn: Handspun Finn (possibly Falkland)
Hook: I (6mm)
Notes: I thought I had about 110 yards of bulky handspun Finn but when I was halfway through the cowl I realized that I had included a skein of some other type of wool that I had spun much finer. So I only had enough yarn to work round 1-7, then 1-3 on the first side then 1-3 on the other side. Or something like that. I can’t imagine making it any longer anyway or it would cover my whole face. Also I crochet very tightly I guess. I should go up a few hook sizes next time. I'm thinking I should dye the cowl or it will get really grubby looking really fast.

This took under two hours to complete.
