Summer adventures in crochet _ motifs

Did I ever tell you my Adventure Cowl made the cover of I Like Crochet August 2016. When I received my copy of the magazine issue, I was so shocked to see my design on the cover.

The Adventure Cowl is an airy accessory made up of 2 different crochet motifs in Knit Picks Hawthorne fingering in color #26682 Beaumont. Using 2 different motifs instead of only one throughout is sure to keep your interest, from start to finishing.

What is better to work on during the dog days of summer than small motifs you can carry around that wont make you overly warm. Even better, you can make each motif separately and seam, or you an use the join-as-you-go method. AND... the bright variegated color used is perfect for the summer season. Dress up your summer outfits as you head out to that hot BBQ.

Want this pattern? Now is the perfect time.

Now, I need your help. I want to make another Adventure Cowl still using Hawthorne fingering but there are so many great color options and I can't decide. Help me pick the next color. I am thinking Sellwood or Fremont. Which color would you choose? One of these or another? Leave a comment below and let me know which color you choose.

Until next time... Stitch on!
