This is my 100th post! I didn't plan to share a pattern on this exciting post but what a great coincidence! A pretty quick cowl pattern. I crocheted this up last November. I really loved it for a bit but then it got cold here and windy. I didn't think this cowl was good for that kind of cold. So I warn you not for windy cold places. Now that spring is almost here (crosses fingers), this cowl will be perfect again!
Skill level: beginner
Yarn: Lionbrand homespun (I used color deco)
Hook: Size K
Swatch Gauge: it doesn't matter for this pattern!
Time: ~2 hours
SC: single crochet
TR: treble crochet (treble crochet instruction post here)
Starting Chain: Chain 54
Row 1: Work 1 TR into third CH from hook and in every CH across to last CH. CH 4, turn.
Row 2: Work 1 TR into first stitch of row and in every stitch across to last stitch. CH 1, turn.
Row 3: Work 1 SC into first stitch of row and in every stitch across to last stitch. CH 1, turn.
Row 4: Work 1 SC into first stitch of row and in every stitch across to last stitch. CH 4, turn.
Row 5-8: repeat row 1-4.
Row 9: repeat row 1
Row 10: TR in each stitch across. Cut a 10 inch or so tail of yarn and secure last loop on hook.
Lay your rectangle flat, pick up one short edge, twist, to place back of rectangle to top of rectangle on short edge (if this were a piece of fabric, you would place the wrong side of the fabric on the right side of the fabric so that the middle was twisted). does that make any sense? does this step need pictures?
Using your 10 inch tail, slip stitch seam (the two short sides of rectangle) closed. Weave in ends.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
PS. have you seen that McDonalds commercial for a filet of fish sandwich, where the fish on the wall sings that catching tune?? It is driving me crazy, it is just so catchy and easy to sing. I sing it in the shower even. Is that sandwich even good?
