I crocheted this scarf last summer (same time as the Valentiny Heart), but like the heart, I never got around to posting the pattern. Well, I’m going to remedy that now. 🙂
I love knitted drop stitch patterns ~ the look, the drapiness, and the yarn-saving aspect of them. Luckily, they’re quite easy to translate into crochet – all you need to do is make chain spaces!
I always admire people’s fake-head models, for hats and stuff, but this is the closest I have. Sorry Beethoven.
I went outside to take these pictures and of course it started pouring rain, so I couldn’t get too many of them. The chickens and I took shelter under a tree until it went away. 🙂
Want to make your own? Look no further! I now present the super duper easy pattern I used. I’m sure there are patterns similar to this, it’s a double crochet mesh pattern, but this is my rendition of it.
- Caron Simply Soft in Watermelon (or desired color) – I used less than half a skein
- K (6.50 MM) hook
Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hk and in next ch. *Ch 2, sk next 2 ch, dc in next 2 ch* across.
Row 2-73: Ch 2, turn. Dc in first 2 stitches. *Ch 2, sk next ch2 space, dc in next 2 dc* across.
You can add or subtract rows if you want your cowl to be longer or shorter. Mine goes just about to my waist. When you’re happy with the length, cut the yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing. Whipstitch the starting and ending rows together, being careful not to twist the cowl (unless you want a mobius.) Weave in the ends and you’re done!
I hope you guys have a wonderful (non-rainy) day! See you later! 🙂
