I am ecstatic to be finally able to share what I have been working on for a while! The crochet cable cowl has a wonderful texture on the front side (created by the fun crochet cable stitch I used) Serious chunkiness!

Meanwhile, the crochet stitch from the front creates an interesting design on the back, which means it’s so versatile that it could be worn both ways!

The Lion Brand Yarn That’s Perfect for this Cabled Cowl!

To make my crochet cowl, I used Wool spun from Lion Brand Yarn in Orchid, which is a wonderful heather fuchsia pink color. It reminds you of Spring, right?? I think this is my new favorite color!

* Update 2019 this yarn is no longer widely available. 

As a replacement, I would suggest using Color Made Easy Yarn by Lion Brand! It has some of the same qualities and soft yarn feel as the original fiber I used.

  1. Krista! We are soul sisters, for real! Your patterns (and sense of humor) are exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’ve been stuck in this crochet FUNK where I get lost in a Pinterest vortex searching for easy yet fun patterns that look impressive and wasting hours choosing/doubting yarn color combos (MY WORST ENEMY LATELY) and starting a project only to lose interest after a couple rows/rounds. Your blog is so refreshing and I think I’m actually going to finish something! Woo hoo! Thank you!! You rock!

    1. Hi Julie,

      Thank you so much! I am so glad you are part of RPD! I hope you find a pattern to try out! Find me over on Instagram or Facebook too! Happy Crocheting!
