Broomstick Lace Infinity Cowl

we lived in the same dorm,
but it wouldn’t be until 2nd semester that we’d meet.

He either wants a cake or MY cake. ​

delta chi parties were never the same
after we met.
cream of tomato soup + grilled cheese
was Our Jam.

i’m officially tired of first day of school pics on facebook.
most of the kids aren’t even cute.

we rocked out to RAY OF LIGHT
for weeks.
we counted pennies to determine
if we could afford cover to bars.

every time i eat strawberries i hope that
richard gere busts through my door to find me flossing.

we have a devote love
for the Lord of the Rings,
Pride & Prejudice,
and snarking.

sometimes i don’t ask someone to do a simple favor for me
because i don’t feel like saying thank you.

most of our texting
and emails revolve around
cake decorations,
running schedules,
and how big our asses have grown since we were 18.

are you still sprinkling salt on your foods like you’re Tyler Florence?
he likes to hold his hand up real high and do it.
i wish he’d sprinkle my cookie.

i’m late this year
with my holiday/birthday/anniversary gift
for BigK.
something like creative blocks
laziness
busy-ness
but mainly laziness
kept me from putting this in the mail for her.
as it happens, it’s cold as shit right now,
even in the dirty south,
she has plenty of time to make use of this cowl.

that’s just silliness. i like kids. i’ve been around them for most of my life. but they do NOT belong at every setting. when i go to a party i don’t want to have to watch my mouth because little sally cream puff might hear me say f*ck balls.

Broomstick Lace Infinity Cowl

broomstick lace infinity cowl
yarn used: Lang Yarns, SOL DÉGRADÉ in color: 783.0079
crochet hook: H hook

*note: you want to do multiples of four + one for the turning chain (using a turning chain allows you to retain the same # stitches).
**note: i tried to find the video that i used to learn how to make this stitch, without the assistance of a broomstick or thick knitting needle, but i can’t find it. you can certainly google for video assistance, just know that the directions are different from what i have described below.

row 1: chain 28 + 1 for turning chain
row 2: single stitch across starting at stitch 2nd from the hook. (you should end up with 28)
row 3: chain 1 but draw the loop through until it’s about an inch (keep this loop on hook). insert hook into next chains and repeat, you will end up with 28 1″ loops on your hook. carefully remove hook and turn.
row 4: insert hook through 4 loops, single crochet on those 4 loops 4x. do that for the entire row, you should up with 7 sets of 4 loops. chain 1 (turning chain) and turn.
row 5: single crochet across. (you should end up with 28). chain 2 (turning chain) and turn.
row 6: single crochet across. (you should end up with 28). chain 2 (turning chain) and turn.
row 7 and beyond: repeat row 3 – 6 until reach desired length.

this can be a scarf or to make into a cowl, sew the ends together. i twisted once before sewing the ends. if you’re feeling fancy, have at it.

BAM!
