I was very lucky this Easter to be able to do a road trip with my hubby around Utah, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. The main purpose was to go to Yellowstone and see bears - which we did - real live bears, wolves, coyotes and so many elk and bison - amazing times.
Along the way I picked up some yarn in Idaho Falls - at a Walmart actually. I also went to the most amazing yarn store in Ogden, Utah, but more about that another time.
I picked up 2 balls of Caron, Simply Soft Paints - Oceana (100g each) and have just made a hat and cowl ready for my next venture into more northern regions than suburban London very soon.
The cowl was made using a feather and fan crochet pattern found here on Ravelry.
Using 5mm hook I chained 136 sts and did 8 pattern repeats.
For the hat I used this pattern but I only did the rib body not the rib band. The body was 30cm long before I decreased for the crown - which took 5 rounds. I used a 4.5mm circular needle.
Here are some photos of the gorgeous Idaho Falls.
