crochet charcoal cowl with buttons


hope it goes well with you?! it’s been a while since i wrote my last blog post, real life took almost all my time. i have neglected my blog, but also the reader and therefor i didn’t visit many blogs and didn’t write many comments. hopefully you will forgive me !?

well, i did post a picture on instagram almost daily, because i keep crocheting.

the charcoal cowl is finished, i added no other colors, but i made a button closure. 

i had problems with the color difference of the yarn, because not all balls were of the same dye-lot. i solved it by first working with the lightest shade until i was halfway the amount of it and did the same with the darkest shade. i then attached the lightest shade at the beginning chains (on the other side of them) and continued to work in the same way. 
the spaces between the groups of double crochets were large enough to function as button holes, so i only had to find buttons with the right size and color.
very simple and i am satisfied with the end result.
