I recently stumbled upon a facebook page called Frayed Knot by Jonna and learned about a crochet challenge. The challenge is called the Design Wars Challenge . The challenge is to create a crochet item using Red Heart With Love yarn. I decided to design a new crochet pattern for a cowl, or infinity scarf, since I happen to have one skein of this yarn in a deep purple color. Here is the design I will be entering in the challenge:
I really like how my pattern turned out and it can be worn long or double wrapped for warmth. The yarn is a worsted weight acrylic yarn and very easy to work with. I plan to have the pattern available soon in my etsy shop and on craftsy. I was so excited about finishing it and I wanted to get it entered in the challenge and share it here on my blog first.
This challenge is for the whole month of February and you can click on the link above to learn more about it if you are interested in entering.
What crochet or knitting projects are you currently working on? I am crocheting a new infinity scarf that is in Olympic USA team colors. I got inspired to make something red, white and blue after the opening ceremony and seeing their cool sweaters and hats that they wore. I have been working on it the last few nights while watching the games. I hope to have it done in the next few days and share it on my blog soon.

Lately I have been back to doing more crochet and knitting projects. I seem to go through seasons of crafts as the seasons change. Summer tends to be a season where I sew more. In the fall and winter I tend to do more crochet and knitting. I am not sure about spring time – I guess then I try to do a little gardening and a little of all my crafts: crochet, knit and sew.
This is my recently finished crochet pattern:
The pattern is currently available in my etsy shop. I will also be listing it on craftsy soon. The pattern is for all three items: the cape, cowl and scarf for one price.
The pattern uses the same basic stitches but in different ways, with different size hooks, to create each item. The pattern is very easy and the scarf and cowl work up quickly. The cowl can also be worn as a wrap as seen in one of the above photos. A great gift for those on your Christmas list.
