Free Crochet Pattern...Earth Fairy Button Cowl!


The Earth Fairy Button Cowl is an elegant project that uses a special skein of yarn.  Rows of eyelets are finished off with a pretty open picot edging and topped with two lovely buttons.  This cowl is versatile and can be worn in lots of different ways, fastening it with one or two of the buttons.  No need to work button holes in either, the eyelets and edging work just fine.  The Earth Fairy Button Cowl is quick to stitch up, making it a perfect gift idea too!

  10. That ... is gorgeous !! I would love to make this for my daughter - and for a close friend - both of whom would adore this mix of colours. Am I right in saying that this particular yarn being hand dyed is 'non repeatable' colour-wise ? Also - I am in Portugal, my daughter is in the UK - and I can't find much of this particular yarn anywhere :( Not even on ebay ! Have you any suggestions that might help? [ I checked out the Yarn Barn - but they didn't seem to have it either ... ] Many thanks for your help ... I will keep looking in the meantime .. and try to find a similar 'mix' of colours !

    1. Hi Susan! Another place that has gorgeous hand painted yarn (and a ton of variety) is Knit Picks. They have great customer service too. :)

    2. Thanks, I tried a local shop and found a yarn that was brown/black/brown/dark green - which met with approval from my daugher !! I made it up in two nights !! I have almost finished a second .. in muddy shades of purple/dark green [ will suit my friend SO well - these colours always look great on her!] but it was heavier yarn. I found I had to use less chain to make it narrower and a huge hook. It's a bit heavy .. but it's VERY warm and as she's back in ScotlandI am sure she'll love it !!

  15. Thanks for this beautiful pattern. Any chance you will doing a YouTube tutorial on it? I am new to crocheting and find your tutorials VERY helpful. Would love to see a demo of this one as I am a little confused at how Row 2 ends and Row 3 begins and again for end of Row 3 going into Row 4. Would be very grateful for a demo. Cheers.

  16. Thank you for the beautiful pattern. I am also struggling with the transition from Row 2 to Row 3. I start with 23 stitches in Row 1 which works perfectly for Row 2. My interpretation of Row 3 results in 22 stitches - which does not work for the 2nd round of Row 2 - which needs 23 stitches. what am I doing wrong? in the interim I have added a dc in the 2nd stitch of Row 3.
