If you get easily distracted following intricate crochet patterns, you’ll love this simple repetitive design.
Materials used: Lion Brand’s Pound of Love in Antique White (didn’t have to use even half of the yarn), a size N15/10.00mm crochet hook, a tapestry needle (for sewing the ends together), and stitch markers (to guide me in sewing the ends together).
To begin, crocheted a length of chain to measure around your neck down to about 3 inches above your belly button – no counting required!
Row 1 Skip 3 chains, *TC, DC, SC in next stitch, skip 2 chains, continue from * to the end of the row. Don’t worry if you have chains left over. You can fold them in at the end when you sew the two ends of the finished piece together.
Row 2 and on Ch 2 at the beginning of each new row and at the top of each TC from the row below, TC, DC, SC, Ch 1.
To sew the ends together, because the stitches won’t match up, fold the cowl in half, spread the cowl evenly from end to end, and place stitch markers in various points across the ends to guide you so that when you sew the two edges together using a tapestry needle, the cowl will look even.
And that’s it!
I ended up with 24 rows of clusters, but you can make it as long or as short as you like.
