Venetian Carnival Cowl

Yes, another Venetian Carnival Cowl. When I published this pattern, I know I mentioned that I don’t publish a pattern unless I enjoyed it immensely. So, yes, I did make another one.

I just love the Madelinetosh Merino Light, in any color! I don’t think they have a bad colorway, TBH. These buttons are actually plastic and I try to grab them whenever I see them at a store. They add no weight to the piece and are washable.

A 3rd venetian Carnival cowl?

I do tend to make the same patterns over and over and over… I guess patterns are a bit like books, recipes or even friends – some you just enjoy more than others. I kid, I kid.

I love Koigu, but I don’t care to order it and it comes in a totally different color. This time I ordered from Jimmy Beans Wool and this was pretty spot on, so that was nice. Look at all the colors they have!! I was in heaven.

So here is my purple Koigu cowl. I plan to sell it in my Etsy shop. If you haven’t tried Koigu, you should know it softens so much after washing and it fades and fuzzes a little over time but it’s still so pretty.

You only need 1-skein of Madelintosh Merino Light (or a nice sock yarn) To make this one. I love that!

Unique stitch combinations make up the wavy button band, then the body is perfect for leisurely crocheting. Makes a nice 1-skein gift and works well as a take-a-long project.

Notions: SIX 3/4” buttons and a needle.

NOTE: This beautiful yarn, with a ‘halo’ around the fiber, was chosen to give a soft hand to the fabric without being flimsy, so it should support the weight of most 3/4” buttons.

Venetian Carnival testing is wrapping up…

Testing is just about complete and the pattern should be out on or near August 15th. I will make it available here, so I hope you check back.

I’m liking this piece much more in Madeline Tosh Merino Light, shown here in Nebula (blue), and Nutmeg (gold) but the green (olive) was 2 strands of Malabrigo Lace held together. I think this will be a warm cowl and keep it shape with yarns that have that fuzzy halo about them. A little harder to rip back for a mistake, but worth it.

I need a cranberry one for with my charcoal coat this winter.
