NEW PATTERN!! Ballyvaughan Cowl

I'm excited to introduce you to the Ballyvaughan Cowl. 

Ballyvaughan is a small harbour village in County Clare, Ireland. Inspired by the gorgeous landscapes surrounding the village I designed this quick, easy cowl pattern. A mix of double and treble stitches creates texture, and gently  blends the colours, mimicking those that I saw in the surrounding countryside. This cowl is perfect for those 'in-between' seasons where you don't necessarily want a full scarf, but need something to protect you from those northerly winds. 

Like all my crochet patterns this is a really easy, fast, satisfying project. 

Now for the details:

One size: 18 cm wide, 60cm long before joining into a round. Measurements made after blocking
This garment will benefit from wet blocking to relax the stitches.

100g Siabod Slate (05)- A, 50g Gwyngregin Damson (06)- B and 25g Idwal Lichen (09)- C  in Ada from Find Me Knitting.
6.0 mm hook.

Gauge is not strictly important for this project.

This cowl is constructed in rows. The short ends are sewn together using mattress stitch to join into a circle

This pattern is available for free on my Ravelry Store until the end of March. I would love to hear if you make this project, you can let me know by commenting here, or via Instagram (@sal_strawbs).

Here are some snaps of the stunning scenery that inspired this pattern.
