Introduction

I wanted a really neat pattern to make a cowl and i found this one! It wiggles and waggles and its a really neat looking pattern!

Special thanks to "The Art of Crochet by Thersa" on Youtube for this pattern.

Direct link for this pattern is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTaYu68YeFM

Materials List

Yarn, colour of your choise.

crochet hook ( I used a 5.50 gauge)

threading needle

Finished Size

To the persons preference, cn be a cowl or make it into a long scarf.

Notes

Double crochet cluster: loop your yarn around the hook as if to do a double crochet, pull the yarn THROUGH but loop another loop on the hook, pull the yarn THROUGH 2, loop the yarn over again, pull yarn threw hole then pull THROUGH 2,  then THROUGH 3 loops.  (if this doesnt make any sence, watch the video)

 

The Pattern

Ch 28, sc for 27 sts, or 27 foundation sts (please dont make me describe how to do this one, Watch the video for a better understanding)

Row1: ch 1, **>1 sc crochet in 3 sts, ch. 2, skip 2 sts and in the third st, work a double crochet cluster (watch video for a better explaination on how to do this), ch 2, skip 2 sts, and work 1 sc in the next 3 sts<**.  Repeat from ** to **  until you reach the end.

Row 2: ch 1, turn, work 1 sc in 3 sts, 2 sc in the space, 1 sc in the top of the cluster, 2 sc on the space, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the space, 1 sc in the top of the cluster, 2 sc in the space...and so on until you reach the end.

Row 3:ch 1, turn, double crochet in the same st, work a double crochet cluster in the next st, ch 2, skip 2sts, work 1 sc in the next 3 sts, ch 2, skip 2sts work a double crochet cluster in the next st, ch 2, skip 2 sts, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, ch 2, skip 2 sts, work a double crochet cluster in next st....and so on until you reach the end.  Youll find you'll have 1 stitch left, work a double crochet in last st.

Row 4: ch 1, turn, work 1 sc in the top of the dc, 1 sc in the top of the double crochet cluster, 2 sc in the space, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the space...and so on until you reach the end.

Row 5:  repeat rows 1-4 until you reach your desired length

For Buttons: Chain 3, slip stitch in first chain.  work 10-15 sc in loop.  slip stitch in beginning chain, chain 1, and work 1 sc in each other the sc's.  slip stitch in the beginning chain.  take your threading needle an place your button anywhere on your cowl that you want and sew it on. Repeat once more (or how ever many buttons you want) until you feel its Perfect!

If you need any explaination, check out the video.  It can explain a lot better then I can!

This is a great pattern - BUT - you should really do a spell check - when you say 'threw' it should be 'through'.  "Threw'  is used as if you threw the ball of yarn.

The scarf is so great and unique. I can't wait to show it to the small group of crocheters I belong to....they will be excited.

threw / through......two different meanings which definitely makes them not the same. And actually it is hard to sometimes to decipher/understand what it meant if words are misspelled or misused. I don't think anyone here is trying to be nasty just an honest constructive criticism.  I agree about spell check....and it's so easy.

I came to this site for a crochet pattern and got a grammar lesson instead :-)

I am just grateful for the free pattern whether it is grammatically correct or not.  My mother always said "beggars can't be choosers".

re;  threw vs through, spellcheck does not detect the wrong word used, only the wrong spelling.  There is a difference between helpful vs nasty correction.  Thanks for all the free patterns and help!

There, now everyone can stop bugging me about the whole "threw and through" spelling error.  I'll agree, 2 different words with 2 different means, However they both sound the same, and I will agree with A Lav...Spellcheck ONLY works with mis-spelt words, even though I put "threw" instead of "through"..."Threw" was not spelt wrong!  In the End....You get an awesome cowl.

Cute cowl but I'm really making a comment because I'm one of those grammar-correcting fiends and I've been on facebook enough that I wanted to click on "Like" through all of the grammar-correcting banter. (I do try to be lenient on FB and blogs.)
