Carrie emailed me this lion brand pattern for Vintage Cascade Cowl and told me I could do it.
It’s intermediate! I have not crocheted in the round before, except for a few flowers I recently worked on for this pattern. And I learned a new stitch: dc2tog! It worked up really fast too. I was sad when it was over!
I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in the colors the pattern called for: olive, pink, taupe, purple, & rust.
I thought there was a little flaw in the pattern, well, more likely a flaw in my crocheting– but I managed to squeak one out…just started over once, which is pretty good for my record of starting over a lot.
I really like the colors, though they feel more fall to me than spring. I put it away in my DONE bin, in case I find the right person to give it too. Look at that Lolly girl, I could just stare at her all day.
I had enough yarn left over to make another one. Instead of repeating the pattern 3 times, I did it two, and added a flower. It’s not as full and luscious as the original pattern, but it still works as a great accent piece for autumn.
