Lotus Cowl :Horn OK Please!

So we are enjoying the summer in London with some bright sunshine this weekend but winter is coming! I wanted to make something really colorful for the coming winter. I took inspiration from the lovely painted trucks that are so easily visible everywhere in India.

So I picked bright pink and green to do a play on the Lotus/ Leaves motif. I ordered Stylecraft Special DK in Fiesta  and Kelly Green from the lovely people at The order arrived in just a few days in a cute fabric bag. I am really impressed by this website and will definitely order from them again.

So back to the pattern. I wanted a pattern with alternating green and pink and to give the look of lotus petals and leaves. After doing several trials with different stitches I zeroed in on this pattern from . This is a really great website for crochet patterns and they are an amazing resource and have a big selection of crochet stitches to try. This pattern worked perfectly for me and I just did a pattern repeat for 6 rows to get 3 rows each of pink and green. I also added a bobble border to it for added fun!

The great thing about this cowl is that it can double up as a headband and the bobble border works really well as a headband too.
