Welcome to Sweet Nothings Crochet Blog where you can find Free Crochet Patterns plus my original designs and creations. :)
Over the years, I've found that there are a lot of free charts available on the net, so as I make the project off that chart, I write down my notes and share them here on my blog. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by.
This cowl is probably one of the loveliest I’ve
made. This pattern.. ooh, what does one say about this pattern ?! I’ve made the
basket weave, but this diagonally made basket weave that’s also called the Celtic
weave, oh, this is just fantastic.
Thanks for joining me in my creative journey.J

I started with the pattern
first thinking I’d make a scarf, and then wondered if it would make a good wrap
and finally ended up making this an infinity cowl.
So basically, this pattern, you can make anything with it.. it is just superb !
As you can see, the pattern links above lead to making an afghan.. how awesome is this pattern?
The Pinterest link above actually leads to a photo tutorial, and I followed that. I was about to write my notes down, when my friend informed me of these two links that already have it written down and a video tutorial as well.
As so many keep asking for a video tutorial, well, here is one for you.
The pattern is not easy, as not only is it post stitches, but it is worked diagonally - but once you get what you need to be doing, it's not that hard.
I'll add, however, that this is definitely not one of those projects you can work in front of the T.V
So if you are working a scarf or a wrap, you just figure out what width and length you need.
If you want to make this into a cowl, once you’ve made it to the
length you are happy with, for an infinity cowl, all you need to do is join the
two ends.What’s absolutely fantastic
about the cowl is that both sides have a different pattern – so even if it
flips over and the *under-side* shows, it looks fantastic.
I love what I've created .. as does the person
for whom I’ve made this, so a total “win-win” here.
Front of work Back of work
I love that when you wear it as a cowl, and some of the back shows through too, it looks superb even then !
And that’s done.. yet another
project brilliantly executed ! J
