A little while ago I showed you a sneak peak of something which had to stay a secret at the time. Well, not anymore.
This is what I showed and this is what it became:
This was so easy to make.
Chain (= ch) 125 and close with slipstitch (=ss), make sure not to twist!
Row 1: Ch3 and make 1double crochet (=dc) into next 3 stitches. *skip 1 st, 1dc into next 4 st*, repeat between ** until end, close with ss into 3rd of initial 3ch. (100 stitches)
Row 2: Ch3, 1dc into same stitch, * skip 1 stitch, 2dc into next st *, repeat until end, close with ss into 3rd of initial 3ch.
Row 3: Ch3, *2dc into space between clusters*, repeat until end, close with ss.
Repeat row 2 and 3, until desired height.
Last row: ch3, 1dc into every stitch, close.
For this cowl I used sock yarn in 2 colours; 1 solid and 1 variegated, hook 5.00 mm.
The whole cowl was crocheted with 2 strands:
- 2 solids
- 1solid + 1 variegated
- 2 variegated
- 1 solid + 1 variegated.
This way the pattern was ‘striped’, without the stripes being too obvious.
