We hope to inspire your creativity with the projects we share here. We are home schoolers and love to be different, learn new things and have fun. We try to be as open minded as possible and when people say you should do something in a certain way, we ask why? Why should we follow suit?

After the successful creation of my first cowl I decided to make another one. This time I used a pattern by Emma Potter. It uses bobble stitch and three different colours.
I used Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky in the colours: Spearmint Green (325), Pistachio Green (324), Seafoam Blue (331). I used 3 Spearmint Green, 2 Pistachio Green and 1 Seafoam Blue all in 100g balls. I also used a 7mm hook. Paintbox yarns worked really well in this scarf. It is really soft and warm perfect for winter.
This cowl was harder than my previous scarf and takes a while. I spent a few weeks working on it. Although, I wasn’t working on it constantly, so for an experienced crocheter it should only take just over a week.
Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky (shade - Spearmint Green (325), Pistachio Green (324), Seafoam Blue (331).
3, 2 & 1 x 100g (3.5oz/149yds/136m) balls.
Weight category: UK Chunky[US 5/Bulky/Chunky].
Tension/gauge: 14 stitches x 20 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 6mm/UK 4[US J/10] hook.
The crochet hook Kayleigh used was a 7mm/UK 2 [US 7].
I would give the Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky yarn a 5 out of 5 for the following reasons:-
- It was easy to work and worked up quickly;
- There is a large choice of colours available;
- The feel of it was extremely soft;
- The cost of yarn is very reasonable - I paid about £2.25 per 100g ball and you get a lot on a ball;
