Pinterest Challenge: Margaret Cowls

Welcome to the July Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month I'm sharing my Crochet Margaret Cowls. I loved this pattern so much I decided to make this cowl in several different yarn colors!



Here's the pin the inspired me to create my own Margaret Cowls.

 I decided to use Caron Cakes to crochet my Margaret Cowls. These yarns are chunky, colorful, and fun!

The Margaret Button Cowl pattern by Fiber Flux works up so fast and is so easy! 

The original pattern calls for one large button, but I added three large wooden buttons to fasten the cowl.

This was the first Margaret Cowl that I made. It was was fast and fun that I made several more!

 made with Caron Sprinkle Cake Vanilla Bean  (I love the gray!)

 made with Caron Tea Cake Winterberry



made with Caron Sprinkle Cake Mocha Rainbow

Since I've recently fallen in love with the cactus, I decided to make a green Margaret Cowl with fringe and cactus buttons! For this scarf, I used Vanna's Choice Kelly Green yarn. 

Aren't these cactus buttons cute!?!?

I love this cowl because it's so fun to make and can be worn two different ways. I have these cowls listed in my Etsy Shop.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Margaret Cowls! If you'd like, you can leave a comment letting me know which color you like most.

  4. You are so talented!! I love all of these. I purchased a similar piece several years ago in colors similar to your winterberry but with more a tweed look. It has only one toggle button. Love that you used 3 buttons on yours. Truly lovely!!!

  10. Don't you love those Caron Cakes? No color changes mean only a couple ends to weave in. Your cowls turned out lovely and the additional buttons really make them pop. I love how you've demonstrated wearing the cowl indoors, too.
