As I prepare for our trip to Ireland, I have been collecting a variety of photos on my Pinterest board, “Ireland” (https://www.pinterest.com/celknotcrochet/ireland/) – There are so many beautiful places to see! I can’t get enough of the coastline, castles and green hills.
Above is pictured the South Beach in Greystones, Ireland which was the inspiration for the name of this cowl that was published in the February Issue of Crochet World.

This is a unique cowl in that it is reversible and has a button closure. This front square shows the Diamond Stitch and the ‘hidden’ square is made up of the Basketweave Stitch. The part that wraps around your neck is made up of several rows of stitches worked in the back loop only to give a great ribbed effect. I crocheted it with a beautiful yarn -Plymouth Yarn’s DK Superwash Merino – that shows the stitch definition wonderfully and feels soft against your skin. This is a warm cowl which we still need up here in New England since it has snowed twice since April arrived!!
