Easy Crochet Along Cowl with your Hand or Finger

Make a super quick cowl with your hand & fabulous yarn in less than 20 minutes! Red Heart Boutique has a new yarn called Dash. It is a knit tube (also called an I-cord).  Save time for a quick handmade gift for you or a friend with this gorgeous yarn.



Yarn in video: 1 hank 3929 Mountain (the earth tones)
Yarn in photo: 1 hank 3944 Meadow (the green tones)
Yarn on my mom: 1 hank 3939 Twilight (blues/purples - Makes me think of Twilight Sparkle, LOL)

OR make your own finger knit tube out of a Red Heart Yarn, like Treasure, and you'll have something stunning! Here is my video on how to finger knit http://youtu.be/NulgNzKp1LY

The pattern is inside the label of Red Heart Boutique Dash or follow along from start to finish with this video tutorial.  (Or this link here http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/hand-crochet-cowl-0) Let's crochet!

I'm more of a beginner crochet person, in this video, and can do this easily.  The foundation row is a bit funny when starting, but once you get the hang of it you will be flying!  Have fun.

About Me

My photo

My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on Vivaloom.com  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
