'Easy Peasy Cheery Granny Crochet Cowl'.
I am so fed up with the dull, damp and dark days were are having this winter, I wanted to lash out and wear something colourful around my neck when I am wearing my black winter coat.
So here it is:
EASY PEASY CHEERY GRANNY COWL
By Bee & Buzz copyright 2013
Working in the Round
Stitches & Abbreviations
Slip Stitch ssTreble tr
This pattern uses UK crochet terminology
4mm Crochet Hook
A selection of DK weight yarn
6 different colours
Green (E)Yellow (F)
The whole project uses about 100grams of yarn so great for using up yarn left over from other projects.
With Yarn A, CO 132 ch. Join with ss to create a circle. Alternatively, if you find it easier, join when you have finished round 1 to top of 3 starting chain with a ss and use darning needle to stitch tail end to bottom of first treble stitch. This helps to avoid twisting your work.
Still using Yarn A, Insert hook into 3rd ch from hook, (this creates the first tr), then make 2 tr into same ch, miss 2 ch, *3 tr into next ch, miss 2 ch, *repeat to end. Join with ss to top of first st. Cut yarn, pull end through loop with hook.
With Yarn B, rejoin yarn. Make 3 ch, 2 tr into same space. *Miss 3 tr cluster, in next space make 3 tr, *repeat to end. Join with ss to top of first 3ch. Cut yarn, pull through loop to finish.
With Yarn C, rejoin yarn and repeat instructions in round 2.
With Yarn D, rejoin yarn and repeat instructions in round 2.
With Yarn E, rejoin yarn and repeat instructions in round 2.
With Yarn F, rejoin yarn and repeat instructions in round 2.
Rounds 1 - 6 above make up the colour repeat and the pattern.
Rounds 7 - 12:
Repeat rounds 1 - 6 above.
Rounds 12 - 18:
Repeat rounds 1 - 6 once more.
This completes the cowl.
Work in ends with a darning needle.
Your cowl is now complete and you can wear it cheerily with a happy smile on your face, knowing it’s a product of all your hard work and happy hooking!
If you have a go at it and want to send me a picture of your finished item, I would love to see your efforts.
