I recently published my first crochet pattern (which I am still so excited about!) and today I'd like to share a variation on that pattern that I think is very pleasing. This was actually my prototype so you may notice a couple of inconsistencies if you've taken a look at the pattern I wrote. This yarn is just too luxurious and wonderful not to share, however. And I scored it for practically a song at one of my local yarn shops. I just love when that happens! And it's a fair trade product which is just good for the soul, is it not? Since Eco Baby is a sport weight yarn as opposed to the aran weight (Red Heart Soft) I used in my pattern it gives a much lacier and lighter look to the cowl. The drape is also a bit different and looks quite glamorous, I think. The cowl in these photos was made with one ball of Eco Baby (hence why I had to omit the final row of bobbles, I ran out of yarn!) and is based on an original chain of 81 (as opposed to 71). I just love the way this pattern looks in sport weight and I'm thinking I'll need to whip one up in every color to match all my girl's outfits. Well, enough chit chat about it, let's see the photos!
