Free crochet cowl pattern
186 yards (170 meters)
Pattern uses 3 balls
A very simple and gratifying project using a conservative amount of your yarn and your time In no time at all you’ll have a stylish accessory that will quickly become one of your most treasured possessions.I made his cowl in gorgeous aran weight wool .I have used this pattern for years .It's my go to pattern for quick and easy gift I thought I'd share it with you in the hope it will become your go to quick gift pattern. It is always received with pleasure .It is so warm and cosy you substitute any weight yarn the pattern looks lovely whatever yarn you use .I have made this with kid silk haze and some swarkowski crystal threaded on to yarn and it is so beautiful. This is a very quick pattern and makes a perfect useful Christmas gift. I thoroughly believe gifts should be useful except for diamonds, (hint hint for the Mr)
It is just a one row repeat .Chain whatever length you like, I believe we all like different sized cowls my youngest likes them snug, I prefer a loose one and my brother likes a cowl that can be wrapped three times round his neck.
The pattern is this simple repeat
Simply chain the amount to like . You are working in the round. If you prefer you can make this a scarf and then join afterwards, if you twist this 180* and then join you will have a Mobius
Row 1; 2trtog, 2ch ,2trtog , skip 2ch , 2trtog, 2ch, 2trtog, skip 2ch to end , join with a slip st.
Row 2; 3ch and now work 2trtog, 2ch ,2trtog in the 2ch space of previous 2trtog, 2ch ,2trtog ,make sure you don't do the stitch in the skip 2ch but the 2ch between the 2trtog .Hope this makes sense.
Work row 2 for 15 or so rows.
EDIT: thank you to Coralstrs from Ravelry who pointed out Id make a mistake. Thank you very much
I made a crochet rose .I am writing the pattern for the rose as I post this and it will be available soon .
