PATTERN DETAILS

Here are two neckwear patterns - one a cowl to wear loose or double wrapped and the other a long scarf - that are light enough to wear year round. Loosely wrapped over a cotton blouse or T-shirt either makes an attractive accent. Covering a bare neck or wrapped around a turtleneck, they add an extra layer of warmth in winter. Both are made from lace weight yarn that is a mixture of soft merino wool and silk to make them super soft, not a bit itchy, and with a lovely drape. Though the lace pattern may make this project look complicated, the pattern uses the most basic stitches which any beginner will know. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic crochet stitches like double crochet Good tension control and comfort with small hooks and lace weight yarn GAUGE 29 stitches and 14 rows - 4 x 4 swatch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Scarf is 5 inches wide and 70 inches long excluding optional fringe Cowl is 5 inches wide and 20 inches long (doubled)
