YoP Rnd 2: Week 2 Update!

1 item down, 29 to go! That's right! Started/finished one of the cowls on my list this week. It's the "Lace Scrunch" from Crochet Cowls by Lisa Gentry. Unfortunately these cowl books are so new I don't believe they've been added to Rav yet (I ordered straight from the designer) but I do at least have pictures of my finished product!


No I did not plan on wearing an orange shirt in the picture but it's amusing none the less. Want to know my favorite part about this cowl?


It is capable of extending down over my shoulders. I...LOVE....THIS. Once it's not 103 degrees out like it's been this weekend, this will get so so much use!

So yes, just a quick update with a FO this week. If you've seen my "worksheet" list here, you'll notice I've also filled in another project on it. I'm working on a dragon from Fresh Stitches' "Choose Your Own Dragon" Adventure.

It's also been recently announced in her group on Rav that there will be a CAL for the Dragon shortly after the Ravellenic Games so I foresee a second dragon being made BUT I don't think I'll count that as my YoP amigurumi/month, it may just be a bonus.

    1. Thanks! I say the same thing about KALs, I CAN knit but not well enough to keep up with a KAL. I always fall behind!

  9. Gorgeous cowl, and what a beautiful colour that will be in the autumn when the leaves start to fall. Congratulations on your first YoP finish!

  10. Oh I wish I hadn't clicked the link for Choose Your Own Dragon - now I want one too! So cute!

    Love your cowl, and I like that tone-on-tone layering you've got going on with the orange shirt and the orange cowl! You know you can add the pattern to Ravelry if it isn't already there, right?

  11. Yeah I know I could add it to Rav but I like to give the designer a chance first :) The books quite literally JUST came out hehe

  13. What a sweet pattern to have it come down over the shoulders--and well done getting something completed already! And yes! I am trying to clear the deck for the games. I just realized I am on vacation for part of it so I will have even more time to knit! :) Your little dragon pattern is just so cute--one more reason I should break down and learn to crochet!

    1. It's actually not my pattern (the dragon). It was designed by Stacey Trock from freshstitches.com. You should learn how to crochet! It's all single crochet so it's super simple!

  14. That's lovely and I think it look fabulous over your shoulders like a little capelet.

    1. If I can make it work to wear it that way while carrying the little one around I will (or maybe I'll just put her in the stroller so I CAN wear it hehe)

  15. It looks great! I love that it is convertible.

  17. That's a very cool cowl. I love how the length makes it flexible to wear - so many options :)

    What a great start to a year of projects - I'm amazed at how many people are crossing things off their lists already!

  18. How gorgeous is that! Wow!! Go you, that's a fabulous start to the year :D

  19. What a beautiful cowl, I will look out for that book when it emerges into the wider world. And as for the dragon pattern, could it be more perfect? Thank you so much for pointing it out to me.
