It has been a while since I shared a crochet pattern with you all. This year, I’ve been trying to get more of my patterns up on Ravelry so I’m hoping to share more shortly.
This cowl is very easy to make and wear! The only stitches used are chains, double crochets, front post double crochets, and slip stitches, and gauge is not really important, which makes this a perfect project for a beginner. I love that the pattern creates ribbing on both sides of the cowl which gives it a nice texture, no matter the side.
- 1.5 skeins of Lion’s Brand Yarn – Landscapes
Note: This pattern is worked in rounds.
Yarn on and ch 90. Sl st back into the 1st ch st.
Row 1: ch 4, sk 1 ch st, dc in the next st. *ch 1, sk 1 ch, dc in the next st* repeat* until the end of the row, ending with a ch 1 and sl st around the starting ch 4.
Rows 2 – 18: ch 4, sk 1 ch st, fpdc around the dc from the previous row. *ch 1, sk 1 ch st, fpdc around the next dc* repeat* until the end of the row ending with ch 1 and sl st around the starting ch 4.
When row 18 is completed, I like to sl st and ch 1 around the 18 rows of ch 4s from the starting stitches. This gives it more of a completed and symmetrical look.
Tie off and weave in ends.
Eighteen rows makes for a cowl about 9″ wide. Do more or less to accommodate your desired width. The cowl is about 30″ in circumference.
I love to wear this cowl on it’s own, but I also like the look of layering two of them in different colors.
