Fashion has always been a passion for me. I am often inspired by different designs, colors, and styles. I’m always trying to think outside the box and create pieces that are fashion-forward. This particular piece is no exception. The minute I saw the yarn, I knew it had to be made into something very special. Somehow this particular piece came to mind. This didn’t just come from nowhere, there’s a special story behind the making of this cowl….
Over the holiday season, Nate asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I jokingly said, “If you buy me yarn, I will love you forever!” (my love isn’t contingent on whether he buys me yarn, don’t worry. Haha!!)
On Christmas day, he gave me a gift bag with wrapped gifts inside. I was giddy with excitement because I picked up one package thinking it was yarn, and I squealed out, “I love you forever!!” I tore at it to find a stuffed penguin that looked like a skein of yarn, and the joke was on me! My face must have registered every emotion when I was caught in his prank!
Doesn’t it look like it could be a skein of yarn??
But, further into my package were skeins and skeins of yarn! He gave me two engraved crochet hooks as well. All these gifts had to be put to some amazing use. This gift inspired me so much! I made this crochet turtleneck fringe cowl to add to my Downtown Collection fashion line.
For anyone looking for something different during the cold weather, this design is for you. A special note to my sweetheart, Nate: I will love you no matter what, but your support and sharing anything yarn related with me is a one way ticket to having my heart forever! Thank you for the inspiration! ♥

Nadia, I’m loving the turtleneck fringe cowl pattern, as I’m working on the pattern, however with 13 rows i t does not come down far enough, I know i would need to crochet at least a few more rows, I just hope that it does’nt take away from the “Beauty”!
thank you for the video
