I started the chevron cowl crochet a-long. The cowl is a design by Sheryl Thies in Tunisian crochet. I have several of her books and I like her designs, besides, it is a Tunisian crochet along - they do not appear very often.
The Crochet along is sponsored by Interweave Crochet Me and the location is here the pattern is in a free e-book that you can download at the Chevron Cowl Crochet along site. I am using Filatura Lanarata's Fashion Toes. I used it for a vest and it is a joy to work with. I did my swatch (which also gives you an idea of what the pattern will be like), started the scarf and I have 3 rows done. So I am in line with the projected dates. It is a nice pattern - and I am not that fond of the ripple stich
