Update: You can download this pdf here. So, I’ve been having tons of fun with super fine yarn, mostly because it’s light weight and
looks so delicate when worked up (like my Imogene hat). However, because the weather here took a very cold turn, I pulled out some heavier weight yarn and made another nice close fitting cowl. You may have already seen this picture on Instagram.
Introducing the Diana Cowl:
It’s super simple, you may love it, especially if you like textured scarves. I used Vanna’s Choice for this but you could also use a worsted weight yarn for this as well. 😀 I’m sure it’d be lovely.
US J ( mm) crochet hook
3 – 3.5 oz medium weight yarn
5” x 5” = 8 rows x 17 DCs
Sc: single crochet
Hdc: half double crochet
-You will need to know how to work into the third loop of the hdc.
-The ch 1 on the beginning of the hdc rows does not count as a stitch and helps to keep the seam from traveling.
Finished product dimensions:
Height: 5″ – 5.5″
Diameter: 13″ – 13.5″
Row 1: Ch 100, slip st into the first ch to create a large ring. Do not twist this chain unless you’d like a twist in your final scarf.
Row 2: Ch 1, hdc into same st as join and into each st around – 100 hdcs
Rows 3 – 4: Ch 1, hdc into the third loop of same st as join and into the third loop of each st around – 100 hdcs
Row 5: Into the third loop of last row of hdcs: turn, ch 1, hdc into first st, slip st into next st, *hdc into next st, slip st into next st,* repeat from * to * 48 more times, slip st into the first hdc to secure – 50 hdcs
Rows 6- 9: Turn, ch 1, hdc into first st, slip st into next st, *hdc into next st, slip st into next st,* repeat from * to * 48 more times, slip st into the first hdc to secure – 50 hdcs
Rows 10 – 12: repeat rows 2 – 4
Rows 13 – 20: repeat rows 5 – 12
Row 21: Ch 1, sc into the third loop of the same st as join and into the third loop of each st around – 100 scs
Now I made this scarf with fringe on it but you do not need to, that’s entirely optional. Here’s a Wiki How on adding fringe or a YouTube video. Also, as you can see, this pattern is very simple and you would be able to add more rows as you would like, just keep repeating rows 2 – 9 and if you want to make it longer, it’s a simple multiple of 2 pattern (basically just keep your stitch count to even numbers and you’ll be set.) 😀 Pin this pattern for later here. Add this to your Ravelry queue or favorites here.
So, I do hope you enjoy this pattern. I’ll be creating a pdf and uploading it to my website soon. Please let me know if you have any problems with the pattern in the comments here, on FB or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In other news, I do have a sale going on, to celebrate that I hit over 1000 on my FB page, all my patterns on Ravelry or my website are 70% off. There is no coupon code needed, just add the product to your cart on Ravelry to see the sale price or just see the sale price by itself on my website. Most of my patterns are $1.20 – $1.50 a piece. I’m thinking of a ready to ship sale for my website as well, because all the items listed there are ready to ship. 😀
What else did I want to talk about…? Oh! I’m also working on a St. Pat’s ring. As you know I do have a pilsner and clover pattern that I wrote last year for the holiday but this year I wanted to so something else. I’ve got the pictures all done up, just need to get another second to get the pattern written.
Well, that looks like that’s all for this week. I’m going to try to get a few blog updates scheduled for later this month, as the hubs and I are thinking about taking a vacation. 😀
