Cowl Crochet Pattern Collection | Posh Pooch Designs

Cowl Crochet Pattern Collection  
By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs

I have put together a Crochet Pattern Round Up of 
10 of my most popular Cowls.

What is a Cowl?
A Cowl can be defined as a scarf that is joined together,
 or designed in a circle, or loop.
An Infinity Scarf is a continuous scarf with a twist
 to resemble the infinity symbol.
Just a little FYI.

Click the name of the pattern you want to see, 
it is the link
 to where the Free crochet Pattern is located.











And A Bonus Cowl - 

I prefer a cowl over a scarf, 
as I am always losing my scarf.

The Christmas Pickle Ornament Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

The Christmas Pickle Ornament Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of
Do you Know the History of the
 "Tradition of the Christmas Pickle"?
According to Martha Stewart, No one does.
Read Her Post at This LINK

I was quite interest after living in Germany for a few years,
 and could not find anyone who had heard of it.
So decided to do some searching on my own.
Apparently it's not German. But it's still a Fun tradition.
Here is how the tradition works
After the kids are tucked in bed, 
hide a pickle ornament, not a real pickle,
 on the Christmas tree. The First one to find 
it in the morning get s a special surprise.

It's fun because it is silly and the pickle is green 
like the tree, so it's hard to find.
I think the winner should get a big jar of gerkins.
