Last winter, I had the privilege of designing a cowl for All Free Crochet’s blog, Stitch & Unwind. I had a lot of fun doing it, and I am loving the final result. Now, the full pattern is available right here on my blog!

(1) Pattern is written in American standard terms.
(2) Pattern is begun in turned rounds, then switches to a seamless round and back again. These changes are noted in the pattern. Use a stitch marker during the seamless round to keep track of your rounds.
Round 1: SC in 2nd CH from hook and in each ST across. Join with a SL ST to top of first SC, being careful not to twist the round. (90)
Round 2: CH1; turn. SC in each ST around. Join with a SL ST to top of first SC. (90)
Rounds 3-7: Repeat Round 2. (90)
You will now work in a seamless round. Do not join, chain or turn until instructed to do so.
Round 8: SC+DC in first ST, SK next ST. (SC+DC in next ST, SK next ST) around. (90)
Round 9: (SC+DC in next ST, SK next ST) around. (90)
(Wondering if your placement is correct? Your SC+DC combos should be completed in the tops of each SC from previous row, with each DC from previous row being left empty.)
Rounds 10-26: (SC+DC in next ST, SK next ST) around. (90)
Round 27: (SC+DC in next ST, SK next ST) around, substituting a (SC+SL ST) for the last (SC+DC) combination. (90)
Round 28: CH1. SC in each ST around. Join with a SL ST to top of first SC. (90)
You will now work in turned rounds.
Round 29: CH1; turn. SC in each ST around. Join with a SL ST to to of first SC. (90)
Rounds 30-34: Repeat Round 29. (90)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
