Crochet Cowl Finish

I have a finish! My camel stitch cowl using one Caron cake. Ta Da!

One Caron cake = one snug double wrap cowl

So obviously, as I mentioned it’s a caron cake which is aran yarn. I went a couple of hook sizes up from what was recommended because camel stitch is quite a dense stitch. I used a 7.00mm hook and I chained 175 stitches to start and joined. It’s large enough to wrap double and lovely and snug and warm. I managed 25 rows of the half double crochet camel stitch and it’s the perfect size. (My tutorial for how to do the camel stitch the easy way is here).

Also the wrong side looks as nice as the right side which is always nice. Here’s the ‘right side’ which is knit look and then the ‘wrong side’.

And also, here’s some zoomed in pics of those knit look stitches on the right side too because it looks pretty.

Mum says its her Christmas present but I mean really, she’s totally going to end up using it before then.

Now I have these two balls of dk to use next. I’m thinking hats…..

What have you been crocheting lately? Also do you have a favourite yarn? The Caron cake was lovely and soft and bouncy and I really liked not having to change colours because I hate weaving ends. So if you have a favourite colour changing yarn then please do tell.

  1. Love the cowl! Pretty colors and your stitches look so perfect. I am working on the Spicier Life blanket CAL. Took me all day to finish the first section, but I am happy with it and need to get stitching on the 2nd section. This blanket changes colors every row, so that means lots of weaving in ends. I also did that yesterday 🙂 I have been using Stylecraft DK for my blankets lately. It’s a nice yarn, soft and cheap.

    1. Eeeekk that sounds like a lot of ends to weave! I love stylecraft dk. I used it for a Tunisian squares rainbow blanket and it’s surprising nice considering how cheap it is. The only problem with it is that there are SO MANY LOVELY COLOURS!!! It’s impossible to pick a few haha

  2. It looks great Jess 😍 I love the colours of the cake you’ve chosen too. I haven’t really bought any self stripping yarn yet, but I’ve seen a scheepjes whirl and they looks so beautiful (but it’s a 4ply yarn).
