Soft Winter Cowl

It’s been a terrible weather lately, first we had a storm that turned into a hurricane, and then it startet to snow – a lot. Cold winter weather is beautiful, but quite chilling. In times like these it feels wonderful to wear a soft cowl that keeps you warm. This one is very easy to make, and I think that even new crocheters will find it easy to make.

In Norway Valentinesday and Mothersday is on the same day this year. Maybe this cowl will be a nice gift for your mother?

I thought it was quick to make, and I enjoyed crocheting it. When it’s cold, I light the fireplace and make myself a hot drink while I’m crocheting.

I love cowls, shawls and scarfs, I really can’t get enough of them. Soon my hat rack is collapsing because of all the cowls I have put on it 🙂

Ch 120. Fasten in first ch st with sl st. Make sure that your chain dosen’t twist.

This cowl is made of groups from treble crochet. Leave the last loop of each tr on your hook. Explanation under the pictures.

You can click on the picture to enlarge it.

 

 

  1. Make the first group in the same st as your sl st. Start with 4 ch st = 1 tr.
  2. Then make a tr, but leave the last loop on your hook.
  3. Make tr number 3 in same st and leave the last loop on your hook. Now you have 3 loops on your hook.
  4. Make a new loop on your hook and pull it trough all 3 loops.
  5. Ch 2.
  6. *Skip 2 ch st, 3 tr in nexst st, remember to leave the last loop from each tr on your hook. Now you have 4 loops. Make a new loop on your hook, and pull it trough all the 4 loops. Ch 2.* Repeat from * to* all the way around your cowl.

Fasten round with sl st in the 4th ch( in 4 ch st=1 tr).

  1. Start all your rounds in this way: Make sl st in each st until you reach the first ch-2 space. 1 sl st in 2-ch space, ch 4=1 tr.
  2. Make 2 tr in ch-2 space. Remember to leave the last loop of each tr on your hook. Make a new loop on your hook and pull it through the 3 loops.
  3. Ch 2.
  4. Make 3 tr in next ch-2 space, leave the last loop of each tr on your hook. Now you have 4 loops.
  5. Make a new loop on your hook and pull it through all 4 loops.
  6. Ch 2.

Repeat from 4. to 6. until end of round. Fasten with sl st. Each round starts with 1. to 3, then repeat from 4. to 6. until end of round.

Make 8 rounds, 9 rounds are too many – I tried and it became too thick around my neck.

Votter mot minusgrader!

26v

(Scroll for English) Brrrr, så kaldt det ble! Heldigvis heklet jeg disse deilige vottene i merinoull for noen uker siden. De er veldig gode å ha nå når kulda har tatt tak.

23v

Det er deilig å være frisk igjen etter influensaen, bare litt hoste som sitter igjen. Nå orker jeg endelig å hekle og skrive igjen 😀 Det er noen uker siden jeg heklet disse vottene og jeg har alt fått bruke dem mye.

30v

Nå kryper gradestokken ned mot 5-6 minusgrader igjen og det er viktig å kle seg godt så man ikke blir syk igjen. Her blir både sjal og luer brukt flittig. Og selvsagt har jeg planer om å lage matchende lue, sjal og votter. Det er bare å glede seg.

20vDette paret er heklet i staver. Jeg har begynt fra fingertuppene og heklet meg oppover mot tommel og vrangbord.

Vrangborden har jeg heklet i dobbelstaver festet annenhver maske foran og bak.

Jeg syns de både var enkle og raske å lage. For en uerfaren hekler så kan det kanskje være litt vanskelig med vrangborden, men jeg håper jeg har forklart det godt i mønsteret med illustrerende bilder.

 

 

Garn og heklenål17v

Hittil har jeg laget to par votter i dette mønsteret. På det ene paret brukte jeg Dale Heilo, mørk lilla, farge nr 4845 og heklenål 3,5 mm. Dale Heilo er 100 prosent ull. Hun jeg kjøpte garnet hos, sa at det som er så deilig med votter i 100 prosent ull, er at de tover litt når du bruker dem. Da syns hun de bare blir enda deiligere å bruke. De beige på bildet er heklet i merinoull fra SandnesGarn, farge nr 3161. Jeg har brukt dem en god del og de holder seg veldig fine.

Som dere ser så ble vrangborden kort på dette paret. Jeg prøvde votten under vegs på hånden min, og den så ut til å passe. Da jeg var ferdig oppdaget jeg at vottene glir fram på hånden, og blir litt for stor. Jeg kunne ha heklet delen for hånden et par runder kortere og fått vrangborden et par runder lengre.

Mittens with double crochet

21v

The temperature turned very cold during this night, – 5-6 ºC, and I am so glad that I made these mittens some weeks ago. I’m finally out of bed, but need to keep warm to avoid becoming ill again. Cowls, mittens and hats have definetely become my salvation.

25v

I’m still not well enough to play in the snow like I did when these pictures were taken. Right now I’m just so happy I can crochet and blog again 😀

24v

 

I think that the pattern is easy to follow, and as usual I have a lot of pictures.

I made two pairs of mittens from this pattern.

I used Heilo from DaleGarn on the first pair, color 4845 and hook nr 3,5 mm

On the second pair, the one I used on the pictures in this post, is Merinoull (wool) from SandnesGarn color number 3161, also hook nr 3,5 mm.
