Spark-A-Doodle Pom Pom Cowl
I realized I had better make a cowl to go along with the hat from a few days ago. I used some more of the Festival Mix Fiber bulky yarn to double-crochet a big rectangle and slip-stitched the ends together to form a loop. Then I ran a row of single crochet around each side with the same blue Spark-A-Doodle.
Here’s a close-up of where I added the Spark-A-Doodle, including the end. I left a bit at the beginning (a couple of inches before the first pom pom, and a couple inches at the end (after the last pom pom) and I tied them together. It’s kind of hard to weave in the ends otherwise, with those fluffy balls in the way. I figured a knot wouldn’t kill me. 🙂
My daughter requested a hair tie too. I used a regular cheapo rubber band and tied on the bulky yarn. I made a round of single crochet in the hair band, then switched to the Spark-A-Doodle for a round.
So my girl has a hat, cowl, and hairband, all matchy-matchy. Right now, she’s wearing the hairband and the cowl and she’s beautiful! (But again, too shy for a photo.)
To make the hat, cowl, and hair tie, I used about 1.8 ounces of the Spark-A-Doodle yarn, which is about half a skein. I’m scheming some more projects already!
I finished the prankster hat as well, plus something else that turned out funny so I don’t know what it is yet, but I haven’t taken photos. Maybe tomorrow.
