Cowls and Owls… Crochet Fun!!

.

The busy crochet season is here… Several custom orders and time to stock my shops…  Last night I finished up an adorable Owl Hat custom order….  It always feels good to get a work in progress done and off to where it is going….  I love making these Owl Hats, they are cute and easy to make… The pattern I use can be found at one of my favorite blogs… Repeat Crafter Me… She has tons of great projects!

3-6  Month Size Owl Hat…Lavender and White

Also off the hook and to my Etsy Shop... Another Soft and Stylish Cowl…  I now have the pattern worked out and should have this FREE Pattern ready to post in the next couple days…  It is also really beautiful and very quick to work up… This Cowl was made using a slightly less bulky yarn Rated a (5) in yarn thickness,,, The previous Cowl’s were made using a (6),,, I actually like the Cowl’s that had the thickest yarn… They were way more “plush”… But, this is beautiful and I would wear it this fall!!
