Materials:

  • 1.5 Skeins Lion Brand Tweed Stripes ("Orchid" colorway shown)
  • K (6.5 mm) Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors




Sizing:

  • 8 Inches Wide
  • 24 Inches Circumference




Instructions:

Note: Stitch sequence is a multiple of 2 + 4. To make a puff stitch, wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (3 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up another loop (5 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (7 loops on your hook). Wrap yarn around hook one more time and bring it through all 7 loops on your hook. (Scroll down for a more detailed photo tutorial)

Ch 26


Row 1: In the fourth ch from the hook, work a puff stitch, then ch 1. *Skip 1 ch and in the next ch, work a puff stitch. Repeat from * until you have two ch left on the hook. Skip the second to last ch and in the last ch, work 1 dc. There should be 11 "puffs" on this row.


Row 2: Chain three and turn. Work a (puff stitch, ch 1) in the top stitch of each puff from previous row, for a total of 11 puff stitches across. Work a dc in the top stitch of the turning ch.
Repeat row 1 until is 24 inches long or desired length. Do not fasten off yet and proceed to "finishing & assembly" section below...



Finishing & Assembly:

Seam your cowl by sandwiching the ends together.  Work a slip stitch or a single crochet all the way across, by placing a stitch in the tops of each puff stitch in both layers...this will make the seam look nice and neat.  Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!  


To work the Puff Stitch for this pattern:


  1. Wrap yarn around hook.
  2. Insert into the chain (if working the foundation row) or top of the stitch from puff of previous row (if working row 1) 
  3. Draw up a loop.
  4. You'll now have 3 loops on your hook.
  5. Wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop.
  6. You'll now have 5 loops on your hook.
  7. Wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop.
  8. You'll now have 7 loops on your hook.
  9. Wrap yarn around hook one more time and pull through all 7 loops on your hook.
  10. Chain 1, then you're ready to go on!

  5. What yarn and colorway are you using in the photo tutorial? I need to make one in those blues and purples, but my yarn is a chunky and calls for an "L" hook.
