EASY CROCHET INFINITY COWL


free crochet infinity cowl pattern



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 !

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) :

For today’s cowl pattern, I’ve used
http://www.girliescrochet.com/easy-crochet-scarf-1.html and here's the original photograph by the designer who has made a scarf 


Initially , I was not really sure about the instructions as I was a little confused by it, I drew up a chart.

I do not claim this as my own design, and these are my notes as I make the minor changes for my project.

I have opted to work this as an infinity scarf, so will be joining two ends, and then working in continuous rounds, so I’m giving you a stitch count.
The stitch count for our pattern is in multiples of 4

Start with fsc or chain in multiples of 4.  Keeping the chain flat, please join the two ends of the chain. 
Check out this video on how to keep your chain flat without twisting when working with a longer chain length

After you have done this bit, please head on over to the link given above to make your scarf.

I have made a quick chart on what I have done, and hopefully this chart works for you too.
