Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic crochet stitches: sl st, sc, dc, ch
  • The flower uses a magic ring but the pattern includes a phototutorial of how to do this
  • Read a crochet pattern in standard American crochet terms
  • Special stitches--like dc3tog and dc2tog--are detailed in their own section

Pattern Description:

This cowl is distinctive with a watery wave effect of color, wonderful lightweight yet warm drape, and is quick to work up! Can be worn by anyone--as it contains instructions to adjust the size--and you pick the colorway that suits the wearer!

The 6 page pattern calls for only a single skein of yarn. You can print just the two written pattern pages or all six and include the photo-tutorial on how to complete the loopy flower. (It even includes pictures for using a magic ring, in case you haven't tried that technique yet!)

The pattern also includes:
--a notes section of suggestions, including how to adjust the circumference for sizing to a man or child, as well
--a special stitches section
--a picture section showing the details of making the loopy flower

This pattern is written in American English crochet terms.
