Mr November: a man-crochet with Cosywool.
For Mr November I chose a Crochet project
When I started my ‘Man Sew’ monthly challenge for 2015, I vowed only to make things that Marc actually needed. It is very easy to get caught up in the fervour surrounding a new pattern release or
the trend of a new fabric or a certain colour. The result is you end up sewing something that is not really needed and only worn for the ‘photo shoot’ I will admit to having ‘been there, seen it done it’ have you?
Mr November treated himself to a very handsome new Boden waxy jacket this month. He then proclaimed the only thing he needed was a scarf to wear with it to keep his neck warm. *Yarn Gifted by Cosywool.
Thank You Cosywool
As is very often the case with blogging serendipity takes over: I was contacted and invited to make something for winter using Cosywool‘s range of yarn. The fab thing about Cosywool is they send the yarn to you in an envelope that is vacuum packed. This means it fits through the letter box every time. Don’t worry it immediately puffs up to its original size the minute you open the packet. So I had my yarn and I knew what I wanted to make. I decided to make up the pattern myself. The result: I hooked up a preppy style scarf in Autumnal colours inspired by the falling leaves!
The Hook and Yarn Details
I used a size 9 mm hook with stylecraft special chunky Why? because it is soft and hooks up a like a dream. I chose dark brown, and camel from Cosywool as my main colours then added in a spicy colour from my own stash…
How to finish the Cosywool scarf edges?
We both decided a border would be too fussy and how can you not have tassels on a scarf?
You know how I love a good tassel edging! I had great fun trimming the tassel edges too, so very satisfying…
Well worn and Loved . . .
My biggest problem was locating him and the scarf, in order to take some pics for you. He has been wearing it all the time! I call that another successful ‘man make’ sew n or otherwise.
