Do you ever find yourself setting off with the best of intentions, but getting sidetracked along the way? That’s what happened to me with this pattern! When I visited my family in Illinois this January, I visited the cutest local yarn shop and got two skeins of this beautiful, variegated yarn. (Even better? It was on clearance! Score!) I knew at once that I wanted to make something using a crochet granite stitch pattern. It’s one of my favorite crochet stitches! The Granite Stitch has such a beautiful, even texture, don’t you think?
This yarn just begs to be squished and petted! I originally intended to make it into a matched set for a “birthstone series” idea, and call it the Garnet cowl. But, as often happens to me, I got a case of Crochet-DD! Fourteen projects later, I found the cowl in my wardrobe again and realized I never got around to posting it, and it’s now more than an entire month past January! Whoops!
But this yarn is just TOO pretty to save all the way until next year. So, I decided to share it with you all anyways. I’ll be putting together a stitch tutorial to share with you all tomorrow, because I use the Granite stitch (also known as the Crochet Moss Stitch or Crochet Linen Stitch) in so many of my free patterns- like Ann’s Spokane Shawlette for example. (And a few more I’ve squirreled away to share in the future!)
Another thing I love about this cowl is that you can style it two different ways! You can simply pull it on right over your head for a super casual look.
Or, if you want to look a bit sleeker, fold over the top for a turtleneck look! Isn’t this so cute?
I like that it’s warm, but light enough to wear even when the weather is just a bit cool. I shared it recently on Instagram when I wore it to the Gasparilla Kids’ Parade!
