I'm so excited for my first post.... and of course I am including a pattern to celebrate. It's a new season for cowls and gloves and all kinds of cool weather wear and this cowl is so simple and quick to make. I'm not one to say that fall and cold weather is the time for only muted and dark colors. Obviously I love brights and bold colors and I believe that any color can be worn at any time. Don't get me wrong...I do love and wear black, but bold colors just make me happier. So here is my first pattern post for the Lime Green Cowl.
2 skeins 6 weight super chunky yarn (I used Lion Brand Hometown)
Size N crochet hook
sl st slip stitch
hdc half double crochet
4 rows 3.5 inches (9cm)
13 inches (33.5cm ) in height from top to bottom
23 inches (58cm) around
(11.5 inches folded in half)
You will be working in a continuous round.
Rnd 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch to the end.
When you finish working into the beginning ch do not attach with sl st.
Rnd 2: Hdc in first hdc worked...this will form the circle. You are now basically working hdc in a continuous spiral.
If needed, mark the first stitch of each row as you work it.
Your cowl will be complete with approximately 15 rounds.
Finish off and weave ends.
(Note) I never use knots and always weave at least 4 inches of ends to make sure that they are very secure .
Upcoming posts will include fingerless mitts..... more free patterns!!!!!
