I love a nice crochet ribbed cowl pattern. This one here adds just an extra touch of flare to it.
Sometimes the color of a yarn is what inspires a specific design. With this crochet cowl I needed to figure out the perfect design that would compliment this cool yarn.
This yarn was gifted to me from Martin’s Lab Hand Dyed Yarn & Fiber. This is not a typical color I would gravitate towards but I decided I wanted to give it a try. Poltergeist, is what the color of the yarn is called.
This ribbed crochet cowl is first worked in rows. Once the rows are complete and the cowl is seamed, then you being working in the round.
I think the round detail of this cowl is what compliments the color of the yarn.
You will need to know a handful of different crochet stitches in order to complete this cowl. The main stitch used is a half double crochet stitch.
The ribbed cowl section is worked with half double crochets and those stitches are worked in the third loop of the previous half double crochet. The third loop is another loop behind the front and back loop that will be worked into.
There are 2 special stitches within this neckwarmer. A treble bobble stitch and a picot stitch. These stitches are explained below in the stitch abbreviation section.
