There has been such a wonderful response to my "Crochet In The Round" post that I have decided to do a follow-up, and to share with you how I created my chunky crochet cowl. As I have mentioned before, writing crochet and knitting patterns is something very new to me. I still have so much to learn, but I enjoy working with yarn and experimenting with different stitches.
I really love the colour combination of the other cowl, but I decided to try two new colours from the same Waverly for Barnet yarn collection. For this piece I used "Butter" and "Gypsy Gold."
- 2 - 100g ball Waverly for Bernat (1 ball Butter - 55630, 1 ball Gypsy Gold - 55640) or approx. 180m/197 yards medium weight (#4) acrylic yarn
- US Size 10.5 (6.5 mm) crochet hook
10 sc = 4" (10cm)
One size fits all. The finished size is approx. 10” high and 38” around.
Using two strands of yarn, ch 84 (leaving approx. a 4 inch tail). Being careful not to twist join with sl st in the beginning ch.
Round1: ch1, *in back loop of next ch, yarn over and pull through loop, now you have three loops on hook, pull last loop through other two loops and repeat around
Round 2 - 6: repeat from * around
Round 7: sc in back loop of next ch and repeat around
Round 8: **sc through both loops and repeat around
Round 9-12: repeat from ** around
Round 13: *in back loop of next ch, yarn over and pull through loop, now you have three loops on hook, pull last loop through other two loops and repeat around
Round 14-18: repeat from * around
Round 19: sc in back loop of next ch and repeat around
Round 20 – 24: **sc through both loops and repeat around
Fasten off. Cut yarn leaving a tail and weave in ends.
For round 1 to 6 and 13 to 18 work as you would to create a half double crochet, but without the last loop.
ch(s) = chain(s)
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
