22 Jan What’s My Name ~ Crocheted Cowl…
01/27/16 UPDATE ~ I am pleased to announce the name of this cowl is “Lazy River Cowl”! Thank you to Linda for submitting the winning name. I think the name is very fitting and works with a variety of yarns ~ long stripes, short stripes, gradient and more.
And thank you to everyone who participated in my contest. I hope you had fun coming up with names and will join me for more fun & games in the future. ~ Jean
P.S. If you are interested in how I chose the winning name, here is a link to the website I use for random drawings: www.randomresult.com.
Finally, after expressing my desire for awhile now to offer crochet patterns along side my knitting patterns…I have my first crochet pattern nearly ready for it’s public debut. Alas…it has no name.
So I am inviting my readers to help me name this Crocheted Cowl. Reply to this post with your proposed name, reason you chose the name & a valid email address. One post per proposed name ~ you can post more than once. The winning name will be chosen by random draw, with the person who proposed the winning name receiving a free copy of the pattern when it’s released and their choice of another pattern from my catalog. Entries will be accepted through Sunday night ~ January 24th, 2016 ~ midnight MST. The winning name will be drawn on Monday, Jan 25th with the winner notified right after. On Wednesday I will post the winning name, after I’ve been in touch with the winner.
Here’s the scoop on the cowl – the picture on the left shows the cowl crocheted in Regia Jacquard Color Sock yarn, the picture on the right show it in Noro Silk Garden Sock. Instructions for both will be included in the pattern.
I was looking for a simple pattern that would result in interesting things with the Jacquard stripes. I love how the stripes ebb & flow from one side to the other. The color blocks are larger with the Noro but also result in flowing color changes. And the edges of the cowl also scallop nicely. While the final design is similar to other crocheted cowls/scarves – it is very different in how it is done and overall looks different.
So… let’s hear your creative name suggestions!
Happy Crafting ~ Jean

Like the slow flowing currents on a calm twisty river.

I see a lovely Weebly Wobbly Cowl in it.

Ebb & Flow is perfect.

Thank you for your comment. Was there another name you would like to submit?

Though I like Ebb & Flow for the blue one, Traffic or Intersections seems to scream at me for the first. There’s just so much action in it.

The Regia cowl does have some action to it – colors moving about and intersecting. Thank you for your entry!

I think you already named it: Ebb & Flow
Sometimes the most obvious answer is the simplest.

LOL – you are right, sometimes the best answer is the simplest. Thank you for your entry!

Will you be selling the pattern soon?

Yes – once it has a name and tech editing is done I will be adding it to my catalog.
