Here’s another super simple pattern with high impact. This project would work up so well with a soft wool blend yarn. Since I’m a vegan, I used good, old-fashioned acrylic; but if you’re like me and you want to experience the softer things in life, try using a roving yarn instead of a worsted one. I didn’t, but I imagine it would be really nice.
Stuff You’ll Need:
- (1) Skein Red Heart Super Saver in Café
- Size (I) hook
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
- Scissors or long, gangly finger nails
- Tape Measure
- Front Loop Only (FLO): work in the front lp only (lp faing you) of each st.
- Ch 1 at the beg of each row
Let’s Do This:
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Turn.
Row 2: sc in each sc across. Turn.
Row 3 (RS): working in FLO of each st across, sc in first sc, *ch 6, sc in next sc; rep from * across. Turn.
Row 4: working in unsued lps of row 3, sc in each lp across. Turn.
Rows 5 & 6: sc in each sc. Turn.
Rep rows 3-6 until piece measures approx. 28”. End by working row 4 once more. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
With RS facing, seam the two short sides together.
Now, didn’t I tell you that would be simple? I designed this to be a fairly short and thin cowl—almost like a muff for your neck, but you can easily make it longer and wider by adjusting your foundation chain.
