Bastet crochet cowl

Here's my new crochet design

This multicolored cowl is crocheted with a houndstooth stitch and picot edging
It’s easy to make and it can be worn in several different ways;

Short or double loop, close around your neck or longer like an infinity scarf.
But you can also wear it wrapped around your head as a headband.

Bastet is the famous Cat Goddess of the ancient Egyptians

As the name implies the Bastet Cowl is a warm enveloping collar 
like that worn by the Egyptian feline goddess after whom it is named.

It uses 165g organic 4-ply Poll Dorset yarn from Renaissance Dyeing
in five different shades naturally dyed with weld, madder, cochineal, indigo, acorn cups and log-wood.

Crochet hooks: 3,5 mm (US:E) and 3,25 mm or 3 mm (US:D)

  1. That was very fast work! The colours look lovely. I do like the logwood blue. It looks like it will give lift to anything. Oh, I wish I could crochet properly.

  2. Absolutely beautiful design, and the colours are perfect!
