I bought some Rosarios 4 Bijou yarn whilst on holiday in Northern Portugal. - from Ovelha Negra. It is super bulky with a varied thickness and absolutely lovely to use.

So I wasted no time in making something with it which reminded me of Portugal. Probably the best evening we had was the first night, it was pouring down with rain but we had the most spectacular view of the Luis I Bridge over the River Douro. It is known as the Eiffel Tower of Portugal, and is constructed from lots of grey steel.

The Bijou yarn I bought is a pale grey and as I looked at the photo of the bridge my mind started to think – simple steel structure, simple crochet stitches. This cowl is the result,

The stitch is simple, so simple it took only a few hours to make. It is also adaptable, I made it using Bijou but you can make it in any yarn as long as you use the correct hook size and start with a chain which is a multiple of 4.
