This patterns includes a revolutionary new ruffle technique! In most layered ruffle patterns, you must first crochet a flat piece to serve as base for the ruffles, and then crochet the ruffles row by row on top of this base. This requires multiple fastening off, which is time-consuming and tiring. The technique used in this cowl avoids this hassle! You will work the ruffles all along without needing extra finishing work (such as tedious weaving in of countless loose ends!) You will need: Worsted weight Size H crochet hook (5.00 mm) Size J crochet hook (6.00 mm) Yardage: approximately 600 yds 1 size 2" (50 mm) button The pattern includes a PHOTO TUTORIAL with many pictures showing the pattern in more details.
