Crochet Half-Double Cowl Pattern
Hello my fellow crafters! It has been a busy couple of weeks around here. I am super late with christmas projects I wanted to get done, but at least I’ve been stitching away to get them done. Even my already-busy husband Craig has offered his help in seaming together granny squares, learning how to crochet a little in the process. Bless him.
As always, I’m late with the specific patterns I want to share with you all. But better late than never, right? It took a bit of fighting with my achy hands to get this to work correctly, but I present to you: the Crochet Half-Double Cowl Pattern!
So let’s just get started, shall we?
8.00mm size “L” Hook
Super Bulky size “6” weight yarn (approx. 98 yards [90m])
Yarns I Used:
Big Twist Yarns Natural Blends in natural blend aged brass
Note and Abbreviations
- sp(s) = space(s)
- st(s) = stitch(es)
- ch(s) = chain(s)
- sl st = slip stitch
- sc(s) = single crochet(s)
- hdc(s) = half double crochet(s)
- sk = skip
- rnd(s) = round(s)
- rep = repeat
- This pattern is worked in rounds.
- Add as many rounds as you would like to make the cowl “taller”.
- The numbers in the brackets at the end of each instruction show how many stitches you should have at the end of the rounds.
4×4 inches (10x10cm) = 10 sts by 7 rows
1. Ch 13
2. Hdc 1 in 5th st from the hook. *Ch 1, sk 1, hdc 1 in the next 1-ch sp*. Rep from * to * 2 more times. Hdc 1 in the last st.
3. Ch 3, turn. Hdc 1 in the 1st 1-ch sp. *Ch 1, sk 1, hdc 1 in the next 1-ch sp*. Rep from * to * 2 more times Hdc 1 in the last st.
4-8) Rep R3. End off.
Instructions for the Half-Double Cowl
1. Ch 81. Loop, making sure not to twist, and sl st the ends together. [80 sts]
2. Ch 3 (counts as your first hdc and a ch), turn. Sk the 1st 2 sts.*Hdc 1 in the next 1-ch sp, ch 1, sk 1*. Rep from * to * around. Sl st to the 2nd ch of the original 3-ch post. [80 sts]
3. Ch 2, turn. Hdc 1 in the 1st 1-ch sp. *Ch 1, sk 1, hdc 1 in the next 1-ch sp*. Rep from * to * around. Sl st to the 2nd ch of the original 2-ch post. [80 sts]
4-5) Rep R2 and R3 [80 sts]
6-7) Rep R2 and R3 [80 sts]
8-9) Rep R2 and R3 [80 sts]
10-11) Rep R2 and R3 [80 sts]
12) Rep R2. End off. Weave in your ends. [80 sts]
And you’re done! You should have around 7-8 inches worth of rounds. For me this goes from my shoulders to the middle of my ears. But if you’d like to make it cover further up, just keep adding rounds in the same sequence (R2 and R3).
