This cowl has so much surface area that it easily covers your neck and would even cover an open neckline of a shirt. It would be great for spring or fall, as well as for relatively mild winter days. And I know this pattern looks complicated, but trust me that the actual stitches are simple!

I can’t praise the texture enough. I’ve always been a fan of post stitches, as soon as I got familiar enough with them to like doing it (I used to hate them as a beginner and now I’m doing designs with them!) It gives you such an impressive look with a very approachable technique. That’s actually why I clicked on this pattern on Ravelry in the first place, the texture.
I set off to look for a cute dolphin pattern on Etsy. I was assuming that I was going to have to alter a pattern to make the stuffed toy the size I wanted, but I was so excited to find the Daphne the Dolphin pattern by Theresa’s Crochet Shop! The pictures of the dolphin were adorable and looked like it would make the perfect size stuffed toy. I am so glad I found this pattern. It turned out exactly how I wanted and made a wonderful gift.
This was a very simple and quick pattern, so there isn’t too much to say. The directions are pretty straight forward in terms of the structure. The most difficult part is also the most striking part of the stitch texture. The “ivy stitch” is where this pattern gets its name, and it’s a really cool look! This technique involves working what are essentially spike stitches into a sort of semi-circle shape, working into different previous rows to get the desired look.
The pattern itself was a wonderful experience. It’s so easy to understand, and the stitch pattern is one of my favorites for a reason. It’s a timeless look that is surprisingly easy to replicate in crochet! The pattern was written with beginners in mind, and is very accessible for people of all crochet skill levels.
I love the creativity in this pattern. It looks interesting, and in a cute color it can easily blend into your decor. Or if it’s a gift for a kid, it would look fun in a brightly colored shade to stand out! I appreciated the thorough instructions in both the stitching and the assembly, and I’m very happy with my finished result.
