Granny Triangle Crochet Cowl
I took three projects with me to Dorset.
A commissioned blanket.
A pair of DK knit socks.
And a Crochet Cowl Granny Triangle.
My inspiration came from Zeens and rogers Really Easy Crochet Shawl
and Mamainastitch’s Crochet Triangle Wrap
As well as a whole host of Pins on my Crochet : Scarves board.
I modified the Zeens and Rogers pattern to create my Granny Triangle Crochet Cowl which has a handy pictorial.
Time – I worked my cowl up in an afternoon (5-6 hours)
Weight – My Crochet cowl Granny Triangle weighs around 290g
Measurements – L58in x H29in
200g of Paintbox Yarns Simply DK in Slate Grey (105) for the body colour and trim
50g of Stylecraft Special DK in Raspberry 1023 for the contrast colour
50g of Stylecraft Special DK in Silver (1203) for the scallop edging
(50g is possibly overly generous as a fail safe because I didn’t weigh my silver or raspberry yarn whilst in a caravan, practicalities, sorry folks)
I modified the Zeens and Rogers pattern to create my Granny Triangle Crochet Cowl which has a handy pictorial. I followed the pattern by doing 40 body repeats in slate grey using up my 200g. I then repeated three rows of row 3 in my contrast colour, silver. The body of my Crochet Cowl Granny Triangle is 45 rows in total. I then added the Zeens and Roger scallop edging in raspberry and then the trimming in the body colour and hey presto. FINITO.

Thank you to Zeens and Rogers for the pattern inspiration.
