What's on My Hook? #18: Stripey Stripes

(A WOMH Wednesday post on a Thursday... I totally passed out sleep when writing this Wednesday night.  Who knew I was that tired?? Not me! Anyways, enjoy!)

Tuesday, my crochet project of the night was the woven tartan blanket that I'm making for Lamar's parents.  Needless to say, making the tartan mesh is a l...o...n...g... and boring job, so I decided to take a teensy little break.  I have been wanting to make a super cozy cowl for a while now... I even had the yarn picked out (Lion Brand Homespun in 4 colors) but I kept saying, "I'll make it after the holidays..."  So yeah, I made it last as my 'break from the tartan' craft.

I didn't use a particular pattern or anything, it's just a chain 102 loop, dc in 3rd chain from hook & across.  The rest of the rows were turning ch of 2 and dc in the spaces across.  I used a 'P' hook which is something like 11.5mm (HUGE!!) and that made it really gappy... if that makes sense.  It almost looks like granny stripes.

Each color has 4 rows and it wraps around my neck 3 times ^.^ I'm very excited about that!  I need to make a matching hat so I can be all fancy and whatnot.  That'll be my next break project.  Anywho, I love it so much!  All I can say about it is that it's SO snuggly and warm :) Yay.

Please excuse the sleepy eyes... It was like 1 am or something :)

I'll post updated pictures of my holiday projects soon.  I want to have more totally done instead of in progress. ^.^  I hope you have a great day!
