Bobble Stitch Cowl

I had yarn left over from a hat and since I have a tendency to get a cold nose, I thought of making a cowl using crochet. I wanted to make a crocodile stitch crochet cowl to begin with but after trying a couple of rows, I realised that the color variation in the yarn was not giving enough stitch definition. I could hardly make out the crocodile stitch. This could also be because of my first attempt at crocodile stitch was not that amazing. Must try it later again with another yarn.

Back to the bobble stitch, I looked up some tutorials and came across this lovely tutorial. What a lovely tutorial and such pretty colors. This totally convinced me to try it out on the cowl. I used a 31 stitch cast on and started this cowl in a cafe. I did not realise how much yarn this stitch takes. I ran out of yarn and had to substitute an acid pink DK yarn leftover from my stash.

I think the pink helps add a bit more zing to this. I really loved the end product. It is a very stretchy, comfy and warm cowl. I have been wearing it for the past week and it is a great easy make. I highly recommend everyone to try making it.
