Tweedy Twig Cowl
By Jennifer Dickerson
- One Skein Wool Ease Thick and Quick in the “Barley” colorway (Note: This particular yarn varies in yardage for the solids, tweeds, prints, etc. Cowl shown was made using the Wool Ease Tweeds, which are 106 yards per skein). Please check your yardage and adjust accordingly.
- N (9.0 mm) Crochet Hook
- 3 Buttons (Be sure to pick a button that will comfortably fit through the button hole. Likewise, because of the chunky yarn, you’ll want to select a button that is large enough to secure the chunky button hole in place. A button that is too small will more than likely fall out and not hold it in place. Click here for more tips on selecting buttons…
- Tapestry Needle
- 8 inches wide
- 32 inch circumference when buttoned
Foundation Row: In the 5th chain from the hook, work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the same chain. Skip two chains and work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the same chain, skip the next two chains and work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the same chain, then one dc in the last chain.
Row 1: Ch 3 and turn. Work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in each of the chain 2 spaces from the previous row (center of each V). Work a dc in the turning chain space.
Repeat row 1 until cowl measures about 32 inches or until you run out of yarn. Be sure to save a small amount of yarn at the end to sew on the three buttons.
Finishing & Assembly:
Weave in all ends with the tapestry needle. Sew three buttons along the starting edge (where the foundation row was crocheted) It will be the end that is straight. See photo below:
To wear your cowl, use the three decorative lace holes at the other (scalloped edge) as button holes as shown in the photo below. All finished!
