My collection of crocheted neckwear continues to multiply.

Mum very much admired my Crocodile Shawl so I made her this scarf version as a Christmas present

Since I made up the pattern for this, I may as well freely distribute it (I'll be putting it on Ravelry as well, assuming that isn't too hard to do)

A cowl appears to be scarf with its ends stitched together. I'm not sure a cowl is as useful as a scarf, but I liked the look of the pattern so I made it anyway.

I have a horrible feeling that crochet leads inevitably to a large collection of shawls and scarfs of various descriptions.

I had a sudden urge to take up crochet again and, since I'd acquired a book which called itself Geek Chic Crochet* by one Nicki Trench, I thought I would make something from there. I picked a shawl thing that looked like fun and, once I'd figured out how "crocodile stitch" was actually supposed to work, it was pretty easy. B. has started making envious comments about how nice a crocodile stitch cardigan would be (attempts to find a nice crocodile stitch cardigan pattern on Ravelry so far have failed). I decided it would be a good project for "using up" odds and ends of yarn I had about the place. As a result of this I think there is nearly four times as much yarn in the house as when I started. The result is somewhere on the Tom Baker's scarf -> Colin Baker's coat spectrum. I personally think it is closer to the scarf end in terms of sartorial taste, but mileage may vary.

* I will confess to being fairly clueless about fashion, but I think this was more Hipster Chic Crochet than Geek Chic Crochet. I don't know many geeks who would be that impressed by a crocheted tie.
