Crochet Updates: A Cobalt Blue Crochet Windowpane Cowl

Hello again!


A Cobalt Blue Windowpane Crochet Cowl


This is my last finished project. I really enjoyed making it! The pattern is the windowpane scarf, you can find it here on ravelry: Windowpane scarf. It is a free pattern.

I first found this on the lovely Dutch blog: http://blij-dat-ik-brei.blogspot.be/2014/05/venster-ruitjes.html and I had saved this to my favourites ever since (which is almost 2 years ago). I knew I just had to make this one day!



I decided to turn it into a cowl and make it for a friend in my class. The pattern is really quite easy and can be adapted to make something in the size you want.

This time I actually made a proof square to see how many stitches there were to 10cm. In my case this was 24 stitches which worked out well for a pattern of multiples of 6 stitches.


Swatching for correct size








I just love this pattern! It looks great in this pure cotton yarn, but it would look equally good in wool! The electric blue looks stunning! The stitches show up clearly.

Here is the finished Windowpane cowl!


Trying it on!
 


 And here is my friend modelling her new cowl. She is very pleased with it!
 




The finished cowl measures 140 cm round x 30 cm deep. It weighs around 400g.

 Here it is photographed against the light.
 




I hope you found some new inspiration and visit again soon! Feel free to leave your comment below.

      I reckon it does look great in any colour or in a variegated yarn, too!

  7. Blue is a colour that flatters most complexions - perhaps that is why it is so popular. The stitch definition of that yarn is great - the texture of the stitches complements the oblong pattern. Good stuff! :-)
