IMG_2269It may still be hot as all get out here in Los Angeles, but there are some parts of this country that experience actual seasons and for those folk, fall is making its way in and settling down nice and proper like. Yes people—it’s the most wonderful time of the year for fiber artists. Time to create all kinds of pretty new sweaters, tunics, cowls, and scarves. So, in honor of today being the first official day of fall, I’m presenting my first official fall pattern of the year.

Materials:

  • Loops and Threads Impeccable
    • Navy (A)
    • Forest (B)
  • Size (J) Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Pattern Notes:

Gauge: 4 shells= 4”

Finished Size: 16 ½” x 10 ½”

**In case you decide to make your cowl thicker or thinner, the stitch pattern begins with a ch that is a multiple of 4 plus 2 extra chains.

**with each row, you’re alternating between color A and B.

**If you don’t want as many ends to weave in at the end, you can change colors in every other row instead of in every row, that way you can just carry your yarn up the sides.

Instructions:

Ch 38

Row 1 (with color A): (sc, ch 2, 4dc) in 2nd ch from hook, *skip nect 3 ch, (sc, ch 2, 4dc) in next ch; rep from * across to within last 4 ch, skip next 3 ch, sc in last ch, turn.

Row 2 (join color B): ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in first sc, *skip next 4 dc, (sc, ch 2, 4 dc) in next ch-2 space; rep from * across to within last ch-2 space, sc in last ch-2 space, turn.

Row 3 (color A): ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in first sc, *skip next 4 dc, (sc, ch 2, 4 dc) in next ch-2 space; rep from * across to within last 3 sts, skip next 2 dc, sc in 3rd ch of turning ch, turn.

*Repeat row 3 (alternating colors) until cowl measures about 33” long. Make sure that the last row(s) is done in color B.

Fasten off. Weave in all ends.

IMG_2271With right sides together, seam the two ends using a whipstitch.

Join color A to any stitch along the side of the cowl. Work a single crochet edge evenly along the side. Join color B to the other side and work a single crochet border. Tries to keep your stitches as uniform as possible so that there are any gaps or bunches of stitches.

All you have to do now is fasten off any remaining ends and weave ‘em in.
