How beautiful is this crocheted cowl! Introducing our Tuesday reveal for Crochet Week: Hop La Vie in Chickadee designed by Louise Bélair. Clever use of front- and back-post double crochet creates the ribbing, which flows into v-shaped motifs before landing in the soft, pebbly texture that forms the main portion of the cowl's fabric.
We love Hop La Vie for its great use of a bouncy, plump yarn like Chickadee to create that irresistible stitch definition. The length of this piece allows it to be worn as a single long loop, or doubled up and wrapped about the neck for extra warmth, if you need it. Simple, versatile, and utterly gorgeous.
We hope you enjoyed our second release for Crochet Week (if you missed it, do check out yesterday's release of Leilani)!
Stay tuned for our next new crochet patterns, coming your way all week.
About Crochet Week: From May 23rd through May 27th, we'll release a new pattern, one by one. You have the option to buy the bundle for all five of them at any time, and we'll surprise you with each new pattern release throughout the week—an update will be emailed to you when each pattern goes live. Or, you can wait until each single pattern is revealed, then purchase at will. It's up to you!
