Amanda Cowls Ta Da!

Design Wars is hosting a Christmas Crochet A Long with prizes from LionBrand and Red Heart.  The patterns are on sale for a limited time, usually at deep discounts.  For instance: I got this chunky but lacy cowl pattern from Frayed Knot, the Amanda Cowl.

I managed to make 2 cowls in the time limit but I did not win any free patterns.  I am still entered for the final grand prize in December though.

For my first one I did it in orange & cream.  It’s very “autumn” to me.  I did this one to try out the pattern, not to keep, so this one is available in the shop!

For my second one I used some Bernat Mosaic in a pink/purple colourway.  No-one here fell in love with it, so it too is available in the shop.

The pattern is easy and the result is pretty nice.  You can do two-toned or just all in one colour.  I like it.  Now I just have to figure out what colour to make for me!

Ta Da!
