Coming Soon: Tusculum Cowl

Coming Soon to the Crochet By Faye Pattern Line



Tusculum Cowl

Lorna's Laces Honor in Mineshaft with a G/7- 4.5mm hook

This yarn was the very last piece of mail we received in Cincinnati. I was so touched that Lorna's Laces thought of me, that I immediately started to wind it and crochet. Since we moved from the south to the north (even though Cincy is in the midwest it is quite southern geographically with a warm climate), I was inspired to start thinking about winter. Mineshaft reminded me of snow on the roads at twilight, and I thought it needed to be a cowl. Also, since we had a long move I knew I would only have room for granny motifs. Between stops, waiting in lines, at the playground; a motif at a time, I completed this cowl. It will make a great gift this holiday season for surprise guests. You know, like when your brother brings home a girlfriend and you want to welcome her or your son tells you the night before that everyone is giving presents to the teachers assistant. Anyone that you want to crochet for but only have a night or two.

I will be releasing it shortly. Till then you can see a bunch of pictures on flickr.
