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

Doucle crochet cluster: loop your yarn around the hook as if to do a double crochet, pull the yarn threw but loop another loop on the hook, pull the yarn threw 2, loop the yarn over again, pull yarn threw hole then pull threw 2,  then threw 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 doucble 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!
