I made this cowl for my daughter last weekend, hence the name Rhiannon’s Chain Cowl.
I’ve seen button chain cowl’s, but this one doesn’t button up.
Here’s the pattern!
Rhiannon’s Chain Cowl
yarn: various types (I used worsted weight, baby weight, eyelash, and a fancy yarn)
hook: 5.5 mm
1) pick out your yarns and figure out what order you’d like to use them in. I did two repeats of my yarn order and my last row was the yarn I started with.
2) The pattern is (3 single crochet, 10 chain) X however many to get to your desired length. So you could have it short like the one I made or make it long enough to go around twice.
Round One: chain in sets of 13 until you get to your desired length, slip stitch in first chain making sure not to twist the chain to create a circle.
Round Two: starting in any chain, slipstitch with new yarn, chain 1, sc in starting chain, 2 sc in next 2 stitches,* ch10, skip 10 chains, 3sc in next 3 chains. Repeat from *. Slip stitch in first sc. Fasten off.
Round Three – End: starting in the first sc of any group of three, slipstitch with new yarn, chain 1, sc in starting chain, 2 sc in next 2 stitches,* ch10, skip 10 chains, 3sc in next 3 chains. Repeat from *. Slip stitch in first sc. Fasten off.
Knot and weave in all ends.
Since this is such a simple pattern, there are going to be lots of ways to change it up. I have some ideas and will post them as I make them. I’d love to see what you come up with, so please take a photo of your cowls so I can feature them!! 🙂
Also if you have any questions, I’d love to help you out.
