Crocheted Cowl

I received a request last week for a scarf.  She was completely joking...  but if I can, I will, so I did :-)  I turned to Ravelry for some inspiration.  I wanted something quick and easy and "trendy-looking" and I found it with the Scrap Happy free scarf pattern.  Honestly, I didn't even look at the written pattern, it looked pretty simple and what I liked about it (for all you crocheters) is that it is a basic grid pattern with a twist.  Normally you would alternate Ch and DC, DCing in he previous DC stitch.  This pattern, however, had you DC in the Ch space which made it easier, made it look a lot more trendy and a lot less uniform.  The pattern was written as a standard scarf but I turned it into a long cowl so that you could wear it as an infinity scarf, double it up to become a short cowl, or use one of the loops in the short cowl to cover your head and be a sort-of hood (in case you get caught in a snow storm with no hat)  :-).  The requested colors were black, white and gray, but I threw in a teal for interest.  I used yarn that I had with one exception, I bought the fluffy white stuff (Plymouth Heaven) to make it softer.  I absolutely ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤  how the scarf turned out... so much so that I am definitely making a matching one for myself....  see what you think.....

You can't tell me that you don't  it as much as I do!!!!  :-)
