The Fanfare Cowl Pattern is Now Out!

It is always so exciting to announce the release of a published design!  This is a cowl I designed for Inside Crochet Magazine, and the preview just came out this week.  It is quick to crochet and a simple pattern, suitable for a beginning to intermediate crocheter.  It is a versatile pattern that could also be used to make a belt by adjusting the length and possibly the width of the cowl.   I think the crowning glory of the cowl is the surface crochet used to define the pleats.  I use this technique often, in my traditional and freeform crochet designs.  The sample was made up in Berroco's Inca Gold, a merino wool and silk blend.  This yarn is amazing to work with and it creates amazing stitch definition.

This issue, #8, is available to purchase via download here.  UPDATE:  As of January 13, 2011, this pattern is available to purchase via Ravelry for $2.95, and is now translated into US crochet terminology.
