My latest crochet pattern, The Vega Cowl is a crochet cowl made of 6-pointed star motifs that are joined together as you go. The edges are made of partial star motifs. The pattern uses DK weight cashmere yarn! This crochet cowl pattern will make a luxurious accent piece for your outfit in cool weather.

This lacy crochet cowl will be in the soon-to-be-out Interweave Crochet Accessories 2012. In the call for submissions, the editorial staff asked for pattern ideas that could use a small amount of luxury yarn. I came up with this cowl and swatched it in a camel yarn from Classic Elite, called Blithe. I found this yarn at the Knit & Crochet Show back in 2011 and really loved its squishy feel.
Well, I was delighted to get the news from the editor, Marcy Smith, that they wanted to publish this pattern in the Accessories issue. I was excited to see what yarn they would send me because I was expecting it to be something really special. I was not disappointed! When I got the box and saw that it was from Lionbrand I was hoping that I would open it to find cashmere. I was delighted to be correct! They sent me three heavenly balls of their LB Collection 100% Cashmere! This yarn was delicious! It was like crocheting with butter almost, if butter could be formed into strings and yet still be melted. It was so soft and drapey!
Sadly, LB Collection Cashmere has been discontinued. You might try Knit Picks Capra DK as a substitute. It is a DK weight merino/cashmere blend. You can get it with my affiliate link here. You will need almost exactly 2 balls of Capra DK for this project.

This cowl was delightful to stitch. It is made from six-pointed star motifs joined together as you go. The top and bottom edges are finished with partial motifs. This takes exactly 3 balls of the cashmere, which is 82yd (75m) per ball. The color shown here is #106 Cruise.
Like every special Accessories issue that Interweave has done, this one is awesome! Jam-packed with outstanding projects that are small enough for that instant gratification that we all need, and perfect for holiday gift giving.
