Used Yarn Bee Sweet Delight “Baby Sage”

Hook: F/3.75mm

Finished Size: 10.5” top to bottom x 18” diameter

Gauge: 18 stitches x 12 rows in pattern = 4” x 4”

Cowl Construction: Bottom is crocheted in one piece for 36” and ends are stitched together. The collar is added working in row ends around one side of the Cowl.


 

Cowl Pattern:

Pattern Notes: Chain 2 counts as hdc throughout unless otherwise noted.


If you are striping with the MC in between every colored line, do not cut your MC, carry it up along the side. If you are striping using different colors for each stripe, cut after each color change.

R1- Ch39, hdc in third ch from hook and each one across. (38 hdc)

R2- ch2, turn, hdc in each hdc across. (38 hdc) Change Color.

R3- ch2, turn, sk the first 3 hdc two rows below, fpdtr around the next hdc from R1, sk the hdc behind the fpdtr just made, *hdc in the next 4hdc two rows below, fpdtr around the hdc immediately to the left of the last fpdtr made, sk 4hdc two rows below after the last fpdtr just made, fpdtr around the next hdc, sk 2hdc behind the fpdtr; repeat from * across, end with hdc in the turning ch2.

R4- ch2, turn, hdc in each stitch across. Change Color

Repeat R3 & 4 for the pattern. Sample used 109 rows (36”) finishing after R3 in the main color so that I could hide my seam.

Seam using your choice of finishing. I whipstitched my ends together. When it’s on you can’t see it. A slip stitch join would work well here too.


Collar: If you carried your yarn up the side with the MC, this is the side I would put my collar on.

Have that side facing up RS facing you.

R1- With MC, Join with a ch1, sc in any one of the row ends. Place one sc in each row end going around, then add one extra to make it an even number. (110 sc) join with the first sc.

R2- ch1, sc in first sc, (ch1, sk 1, sc in the next) around, ch1, sk1, join with the first sc. (55 sc) Change Colors

R3- sl st to the next ch1 sp, ch1, sc in ch1 sp, (ch1, sk1, sc in next ch1 sp) around, ch1, sk1, join with first sc. Change colors

R4- 10- Repeat R3. I did two rows of MC in between each row of CC.

R11- ch1, sc in each sc and ch1 sp around. (110)



 

Materials for Mittens:

1oz DK/#3 Light- Main Color (MC)
Used Yarn Bee Sweet Delight “Toy Elephant”

.5 oz DK/#3 Light- Three Contrast Colors (CC)-
Used Yarn Bee Sweet Delight “Baby Sage”
Used Yarn Bee Sweet Delight “Teal, Too!”
Used Yarn Bee Sweet Delight “Surf Baby”

Hook: F/3.75mm

Finished Size of Sample: 9” long cuff to tip x 3.75” wide

Mitten Construction: The pattern starts at the fingertips and works the repeat until you reach the desired “finger-to-thumb” length. (You will want to take it right up to the valley of your thumb.) You will leave an opening for the thumb as you work the pattern- you will not need to leave any stitches on holders. The upper part of the mitten can be worked to your desired length by just continuing the repeat (after the thumb opening) until you reach where you want your wristband to be. The wristband works exactly like the collar on the cowl, and the thumb gets added on at the end. You can also customize the thumb length by continuing in pattern until you get two rows away from the tip, then do your decrease rows.
