Sometimes a yarn bounces from queue item to to queue item so often, sometimes you just have to turn it into something before it goes back into the deep stash not to be seen for years. So after never finding the right pattern for the Tosh I decided to just use it and make the Calm Cowl, which has been on and off my queue for months.
I really need to crochet more, I do enjoy the activity and the fabric it makes is really different from knit fabric, which means it has different applications. Maybe some crocheted toys like those made by Stacey at Fresh Stitches.

Project Name: Flower Cowl
Yarn: madelinetosh Tosh DK in Smokey Orchid
- Crochet in the Round: although I don’t think I succeeded at it (there are some weird spots where the rounds join)
- Yarn: Tosh DK is always awesome, although the skeins were different and I should shave be alternating rounds but didn’t, whoops, that is the joy/danger of working with hand dyed yarns.
- Pattern: Clear and fine and the FO matched the pattern, although it could have been written in fewer steps, even for a crochet newb like me
Re-Crochet?: Probably not, I prefer knit cowls, but I do enjoy crochet and should do more of it.
