Free Crochet Pattern - Faux Knit Cowl
I love ribbed knit bulky cowls, and wanted to design one to be crocheted. It's super quick & easy, and makes a lovely gift or a quick and trendy accessory to keep for yourself!
You will need:
Susan Bates 5-1/2-Inch Crystallites Acrylic Crochet Hook, 11.5mm, Lavender
Bernat Softee Baby Chunky Yarn, Solid, 5 Ounce, Tutu Pink, Single Ball
Let's Get Started
1. Chain 27, skip the two chain spaces closest to your hook, HDC in each chain space. This should give you 25 HDC, plus the stitch you created with the two chain spaces you skipped at the beginning. We will count this as a stitch throughout the pattern. (26)
2.Chain 2, turn, DC 25.
3.Chain 2, turn, BPDC 24, DC in last stitch (the chain 2 space from previous row.)
4.Chain 2, turn, HDC 25.
5.Chain 2, turn, FPHDC 24, HDC in last stitch.
Repeat rows 2-5 seven more times, for a total of 8 sets of ribbing.
Final rib set:
6.Chain 2, turn, DC 25.
7.Chain 2, turn, BPDC 24, DC in last stitch.
8. Do not chain. Bring the two ends of your work together, aligning stitches from first and last rows made. Slip hook through outside loops of the first stitches from hook, draw up loop and create a SC. Continue down the seam, using SC stitches to create your final rib.
Snip your yarn, leaving a 2-3 inch tail. Use a tapestry needle to weave in your end.
You now have a reversible ribbed cowl, easy to slip on, and long enough it can even be worn over the head on cold days!
