Calm Cowl

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Calm Cowl Link to website or photo www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/calm-cowl What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is pretty easy. When finished, I thought the first row seemed to need some heft so I added a row of single crochet around, think I put 2 SC's in each opening and it gave it more shape.

What you will need

  • Red Heart Soft - 2 skeins "Berry" 5 oz
  • 256 yds each skein. Crochet hook size G or best for you

Q&A with Marie Withrow

Lebec Egirl asked:
Thank you. I printed the pattern to make the scarf !!!
Marie Withrow answered:
Great! This is a really easy one and makes a nice gift. I will be including the picture of how it is worn as I think it helps. It is included with my picture for others' use.
Beverooni asked:
This is one of my favorite cowl patterns. I think I've made it 10 times with all weights of yarns (except thread).
Marie Withrow answered:
I agree - one of my favorites too!
jambers2400583 asked:
Could I get the pattern somehow?My daughter would like this for Chritmas. Thank you.
Marie Withrow answered:
Hi, are you jambers@yahoo.com? I'm sending that email below the pattern - if it's not you please let me know and I'll get it to you. Sadly the pattern used to be here but Craftsy took off the instruction box on all posts recently which I thought was a big mistake!!
jambers2400583 asked:
Could you please email the pattern to jambers@yahoo.com
Marie Withrow answered:
Sure! Will send it out today.
vkrieger4791131 asked:
When I connect the row I am getting a seam with bit of a gap. Is that right or am I doing something wrong. I know you slip stitch into to top of the chain two. Then do you skip that chain one or single croche into the chain one closest to the Chain 2 to start the next row.
Marie Withrow answered:
I have made this cowl several times but not for a while. I do recall that sometimes I had kind of a diagonal like that showed where I was connecting each row. I reviewed the directions and it just says "join with a sl st in the top of ch2" and then most of the next row starts with "ch2 (counts as a first sc)," I would suggest that if that still makes a ridge, play with it - see if you can either tighten the stitching there, or skip a stitch and see what happens. Sorry I can't be of further help - I did not create the pattern so not sure!
