This blog almost didn’t happen. I am now into day 5 of a diet to reboot (in a sense) my metabolism. The book The Fast Metabolism Diet, by Haylie Pomroy, sold me on this process, and I hope to come out of the 28 days slimmer, healthier, and craving real food, not Doritos. Day 5 and I am almost done having headaches from caffeine and sugar withdrawal, and I didn’t take a nap on day 4, so I’m winning (I think)! Anyway, I’ve been in a little fog, and I almost gave up on the blog. Hey, that rhymes.
Sooooo, I have a pattern for you today that incorporates last month’s theme on chains and this month’s theme on the single crochet, which I realize is called double crochet for my UK friends. Please substitute when necessary.
Funky Chain Cowl
Yarn, super chunky, your choice of color
The usual suspects: scissors, darning needle
Button or multiple buttons
Foundation row: ch 70, join together with a sl st to form a loop, careful not to twist the chain
Row 1: sc in back bump of first ch, and the next 9, ch 60, sl st in first sc
Rows 2-10: sc in first sc and in the next 9, ch 60, sl st in first sc, bind off after the 10th row
Weave in the ends
Sew button/s on the flat end
Seriously, could it be more simpler? Hopefully I haven’t forgotten any steps. If you get confused at any point please comment, I’ll be sure to respond in between naps ;-).
In the meantime, Happy Crocheting!
