Rusalka is a mermaid of Slavic myths. The stitch I used to make this cowl reminds me of long, wavy and lush water-nymph's hair which is why I gave it this name.
The pattern is written using American crochet terms. On the CYCA difficulty spectrum it falls somewhere between "easy" and "intermediate" levels. In fact, you are likely to find it a very easy project once you get the hang of slip stitch crochet (if you are unfamiliar with it). Do take your time swatching for gauge and adjust your hook size accordingly.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if anything is not quite clear. I will be more than happy to help and will appreciate your feedback.

Hello! My name is Yuliya and Weaver is an English equivalent of my rather unpronounceable Russian surname.
I am deeply infatuated with crochet and love exploring this beautiful craft. I publish my "discoveries" in my patterns.
