EASY CROCHET INFINITY COWL
EASY CROCHET INFINITY COWL
This is a really easy project that I have made for my cousin. I was browsing through various patterns and this one kept coming up.. guess this one just needed to get done.
Materials used : Today I’ve used about 175 gms of our lovely 4 ply KDR Baby Love acrylic yarn with a 4 mm crochet hook.
(I bought this yarn during my last visit to Mapusa, Goa and I do wish I had bought more of it ;) …That said, can we really have too much yarn?? Evvah?? LOL)
Skill level : Easy to Intermediate skill level.
Size made : ~ 10” wide x 30” (folded) length
Abbreviations used :
fsc : Foundation single crochet dc : Double crochet
ch : chain ch-sp : chain space
sp : space rep : Repeat
hk : Hook lp(s) : Loop(s)
st(s) : Stitch(es) yo: Yarn Over
sl-st : Slip Stitch
Stitches used :
fdc : Foundation Double Crochet : This is a unique way of starting a project directly with a row of double crochet stitches. This makes your whole project neat and even.. in a way that you need to do once, to agree! If you are familiar with fsc, you’ll wonder why you never used this start before !
Do visit this lovely link http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-double-crochet-fdc/
Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row. Do take a look at this self explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start. However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.
Instructions using (U.S terminology) :

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
