Fanfare Cowl Pattern

The Fanfare Cowl pattern that I originally designed for the UK magazine, Inside Crochet issue #8, is now available to purchase in US crochet terms, via Ravelry.

It is a fun project to crochet, and a great chance to practice the surface crochet technique that I adore, to define the "pleats".  It is also a versatile pattern that could be used to make a belt by adjusting the length and the width of the cowl and the tie.  

I encourage you to try the Berroco Inca Gold yarn.  It is so wonderful to work with, and creates beautiful stitches with a slight sheen.  There are some lovely photos of Fanfare Cowls on Ravelry already, and it would be great to see photos of yours if you decide to make one!
