it's quite pretty and super easy to make...You'll love how it feels and you'll really love how simple it is...it has a very elegant look to it...I made this scarf for my mother in law who just looks great in red...I hadn't been posting anything on my blog for awhile but that doesn't mean I haven't been working. In fact I was so busy this Christmas making hats and scarves for family & friends...that is why I hadn't posted for awhile. But the holidays are over and it's time to get back to it...The yarn I used to make this scarf is from Hobby Lobby called I Love This Yarn it's very soft and has a nice bulk to it without being to bulky...it's a perfect yarn for hats and scarves.
I used about 4 Skeins of I Love This Yarn in Red (found at Hobby Lobby)
Yarn Weight: 4 - Worsted
Skein Yardage: 355 Yards
1 2" Decorative Button
J 6.0mm Hook
To make the Cowl: with I Love This Yarn in Red & J Hook
Be sure to count you're sts as you work
Ch74, join & ch4
Row 1. Sk the 1st 4 ch's, wk 1trc in the 5th ch from the hook, 1trc in each ch across, (like in the photo below) join & ch4.
Row 2. (When doing the post sts you want to sk the first st, but always wk one in the last st of the row) wk 1FPtrc in the 1st st, 1BPtrc in the next st, repeat all the way around (like in the photo's below), join & ch4.
Row 3. 1trc all the way around, join & ch4.
Repeat rows 2-3 until your scarf is the desired width. It really is simple but it doesn't look it, it really looks elegant.
I made my cowl quite wide it was about 14" in width. I wanted it to also be worn on top of the head if desired.
