, , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve been wanting to design an easy yet versatile pattern that could be made into a cowl¬†OR a scarf depending on my crochet ADD mood ūüėČ OH you know exactly what I mean my friends! Well I¬†finally sat down & worked one up. I¬†am thrilled with¬†how it¬†came out! I hope you like it too.

You are free to work this pattern as skinny or as thick & as long or as short as you like! You can join the ends together and make a cowl or leave it open and make a scarf. See how easy it is! You can make a few all different styles and colors from the SAME pattern. Love it!

2 in 1 Cowl/Scarf FREE Pattern2 in 1 Cowl/Scarf FREE Pattern

Materials:
Any WW (Worsted Weight) yarn ~ I used Vanna’s Choice & Lion Brand Wool-Ease
You will need 1 skein for the scarf and 2 skeins for the cowl if using those brands.
Size I 5.5mm hook
Yarn Needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations:
st(s) – stitch(es)
sp – space
sk – skip
slst – slip stitch
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc Рhalf double crochet
BLO – back loop only
FHdc Рfoundation half double crochet ~ follow this link for instructions on how to work this: http://newstitchaday.com/how-to-crochet-the-half-double-crochet-chainless-foundation/

NOTE 1: The ch1 NEVER counts as a stitch.
NOTE 2: The tutorial photos are for instructional purposes ONLY. Do not rely on them for stitch counts.
NOTE 3: Your beginning chain, no matter how skinny or thick you want, make sure it is in multiples of 3 PLUS 1 st.
For example: 9 (multiple of 3) + 1 = 10 for your beginning chain.

TO START:

Row 1 РFHdc beginning ch count, ch1, turn. (I did 31 for the cowl & 16 for the scarf)
Row 2 Рhdc in BLO across, ch1, turn.

Row 3 to whatever desired length you want (I did 83 for the cowl & 153 for the scarf) РRepeat Row 2.

When you reach the end, line up the side of the cowl and slst up the seam.

After you slst¬†up the seam, ch1, 3sc¬†in the indicated spaces around (just like the other side), slst to join. Fasten Off and weave in all your ends!! ūüôā

IF you are working the SCARF:

Big shout out and THANK YOU to Red Heart Yarns for sponsoring Design Wars. Anne Geddes Baby yarn was a treat to work with!

I’ve been dying to design something around the infamous granny square. They are so versatile and I can just go crazy over all the color combinations. I had a few ideas in mind at first for this round¬†but it just was NOT coming together for me. I really was starting to panic! Two rounds ago, when I made the Sarah Slouch, I had tried an adult pair of granny square leg warmers…and it was not a pretty sight! The yarn with wool was just too thick and it didn’t look right. So I shelved that idea for another day and for another kind of yarn. Thankfully in my panic state I remembered that idea and thought it should definitely work with this thinner/lighter weight yarn! Thank God it did! Here is my Not Your Granny’s Leggings.¬† { Thank you to my fabulous model Miss Aubrie and my amazing photographer & friend at Photography by Amy¬†}

WOW! So I just found out this morning I WON this round of Design Wars! I’m elated and shocked! All the designs were crazy awesome and I want to make each one of them! Thank you to Salena from Baca Creations who put this together! She is a force to be reckoned with all around and has been an invaluable help & resource to me. This round was sponsored by Red Heart Yarns….seriously?! Big time, right? They supplies the yarn used in all the designs so big thanks to them for sponsoring such a cool event!

I loved being a part of this “competition” and¬†I have learned so much from all of¬†the other fantastic designers. This “war” pushed me as a designer¬†as far as understanding who I am and what I like to create.¬†Really helping me define¬†MY style as a designer/artist. It’s been a valuable lesson and I’m so thankful for the experience. Please go check out the other AMAZING women who made this such¬†a huge success!

I also want to give a HUGE shout out to my very dear friend Amy Solomon from Photography by Amy! We get so excited while¬†I’m working on a project for DW.¬†I give her hints of what I’m going to make and we come up with a style shoot to really showcase¬†the pattern design! She’s so creative and I love when we can¬†work together and create MAGIC! I’d also like to give a BIG high-five to my very¬†sweet and BEAUTIFUL friends Ashley & Sarah for modeling and bringing this hat to life! The slouch is named after Sarah! It all came together perfectly and I’m extremely proud of the outcome! I’ll be finishing up the testing stages and hoping to release the pattern very soon! Thank you to all who voted and participated in Design Wars II!

Love, Jonna
