This super warm cowl is designed using 100% Handspun Merino Yarn from Made by Novella in her Signature colorway, you can read my review of the yarn here. The Kaleidoscope Cowl features a fun lace stitch that is worked in rows and seamed together. A lace border is then added to finish off the look. This cowl works up very fast and would make an amazing gift.

N/9.0mm Hook- I used my Furls Crochet Plum Candy Shop
Finished Cowl measures 15” wide/ or 30” circumference, by 10” tall
GAUGE After blocking
2 pattern repeats and 3 rows = 4”
ch(s) – chain(s), sc – single crochet, dc – double crochet, st(s) – stitch(es), RS – right side, WS – wrong side, sl st – slip stitch
- Cowl is worked in sideways rows and is then seamed on short ends to form cowl shape.
Row 1 (RS): Ch 29
Row 2: 2dc in the 4th ch from hook, skip 3 chs, sc next ch, * ch 3, dc next 3 chs, skip next 3 chs, sc next ch, repeat from * to end, turn work – 4 clusters
Row 3: Ch 3, 2dc in first st, *skip next 3-dc, [sc, ch 3, 3dc] in next ch-3 sp, skip next st, repeat from * to last ch-3 sp, skip next 2-dc, sc in last dc (turning chain from previous row), turn – 4 clusters
Rows 4- 31: Repeat Row 3.
Fasten off leaving a 18” tail.
Block your work as needed. After blocking you will assemble; with WS facing place ends together and seam together. I prefer to use a mattress st.
With RS facing; attach yarn with sl st along the back of your cowl, in any sc space, ch 1, [sc, ch 3, 3 dc] in same space, *skip next ch 3 from body and working into the next sc space, [sc, ch 3, 3 dc] in same space, repeat from * around, sl st into the top of the first sc (skipping over ch-1) to join. Repeat for the other edge of the cowl. Block edges as needed.
