Braided Blizzard Crowl

26 Jan

I am happy to report that not only did I survive the Blizzard of 2016 here in the DC/Metro area of Maryland, but I have also completed some fun projects while at home with nowhere to go!

One of my favorite projects was this Double Layered Braided Crowl! I found the free pattern here at the My Hobby Is Crochet blog after seeing a Tweet from @petalstopicots!

Thanks to this fun project, I even learned how to do some new stitches like the HDC in 3rd Loop, Front and Back Bar, simply by watching this video tutorial! So, while this crowl scarf was my first crochet project in at least 15 years, it was pretty much like riding a bike! My hands and fingers seemed to fall into place with the yarn and hook like I had never stopped crocheting, and the scarf was completed in what felt like no time at all. This project absolutely inspired me to pick up an old passion and play with yarn again!

What project have you picked up recently that rekindled your love for the craft?
