Super Chunky V-Stitch Cowl Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


Super Chunky V-Stitch Cowl Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs
This Crochet Pattern was written about 4 years ago
 when I wrote a Yarn Review For 
ISAAC MIZRAHI Yarns By Premier Yarns

Yarn Review and Free Crochet Pattern LINK



I was recently
 asked if I had
 a Quick and Easy 
Scarf or Cowl 
Crochet
 Pattern, 
she could make
 to give to a her
 mother In Law
 for her birthday. 





She wanted it 
made from Caron 
Chunky Cakes Yarn.
The Super chunky 
V Stitch Cowl was
 just what she was
 looking for.
We retested and updated the 
Super Chunky V Stitch Cowl Crochet Pattern.
 We added more pictures and made a Video.
I think this pattern is perfect for the Caron Chunky
 Cakes yarn.

Live With Sara - Tips For Crocheting Blanket Yarns And Another Crochet Calendar Give Away! | Posh Pooch Designs

Tips For Crocheting Blanket Yarns 
So you have purchased some beautiful Blanket Yarn. 
It's soft and fuzzy but really awkward to work with.
This yarn is amazing if you love bulky yarns like I do. 
It works up fast, and makes great gifts.
It's perfect for blankets, pillows, lovies and more.

Here is a few tips that might help you:

1. Make Sure You Use A Big  Crochet Hook.
When working with blanket yarn I prefer N / 9.00MM
Even if the Yarn label says smaller. 

2. Loosen Up Your Tension
This yarn is best crocheted loosely. When you are using a big hook, you don't want to be fighting with trying to get your hook in the stitches. I even think it looks better just a bit looser.

3. Stick With Simple Stitches and Stitch Patterns.
The blanket yarn does not work well for intricate or fancy stitches. I prefer a Basic Double crochet, Granny Stitch or maybe a simple wave stitch.
Detailed Stitches like a Shell Stitch or Crocodile stitch just do not work up well, The details are lost in all the fuzziness.


4. Take Your Time - Slow Down
This yarn can be frustrating, so slow downand take your
 time. Watching
 closely where you are putting that crochet Hook.

5. Lastly.... Take Breaks
The blanket yarn and working with a large hook can be hard on your hands and Wrists. So You may need to take a break,
set your project aside, and maybe work on a different project.

Hot Pad, Pot Holder, And Washcloth Collection | Posh Pooch Designs

Hot Pad, Pot Holder, And Washcloth Collection
of Free Crochet Patterns By Sara Sach of

This Crochet Pattern Round up is a Collection of
 Free Patterns that can be used as a Washcloths,
 Hot Pads or Pot Holders.

 If it's going to be used as a Hot Pad or Pot Holder,
it is best to Use Only Cotton yarns. 
Acrylic yarn can burn and Melt easily.

If it's going to be used as
a Decoration, Acrylic or Acrylic blends are fine.

If it's Going to be used as a Washcloth to wash dishes, 
surfaces, your face or body, it's up to you which
 Yarn you prefer.
Cotton can hold on the the bacteria and smell, 
but Acrylic can be too rough.

The Name of The Crochet Pattern is the LINK to the blog
 where the free crochet Pattern is located.
Most of these patterns also have a Video Tutorial on
 the blog as well.














I Prefer to make my Doilies out of Acrylic yarns, 
because they are not near the heat.
I usually place a candy dish, a plant or decoration on them.
But If I am going to use them to wash the dishes,
 I make them from cotton.

Enjoy!
