Cozy Grannies Cowl
By Jennifer Dickerson

Instructions for Granny Square (make 6 squares and work a total of 5 rounds per square):

Chain 4, join into a ring with a slip stitch.

 Round 1: Chain 4, work (3 dc into center of ring, chain 1) 3 times, then 2 dc into center of ring.  Join to close with a slip stitch.

Round 2: To work the corner of round 2, first chain 3, then 2 dc in same space, then chain 1, then 3 dc in the same space...first corner done!  Then chain 1, then work the next corner by working 3 dc in next space, chain 1, then 3 dc in same space, chain 1, repeat two more times to complete the round.

Round 3: Work the corner in the same manner as the previous round: chain 3, 2 dc in same space, chain 1, 3 dc in same space, chain 1.  To work the sides, simply work 3 dc in the next space then chain 1...repeat until you reach a corner again.

Repeat round 3 two more times for a total of 5 rounds.

How To Join Squares Together (JAYGO/Join As You Go)

Note: It really helps to keep everything flat as you work, I like to lay mine on a table or lap as I go. Also be sure the right side of each square (side that faced up as you stitched up your squares) is facing upward.

Part 1: The Very First Square (worked independently, nothing is joined to this one yet)

Tie on the round 3 color into any corner space of a square you've previously made and ch 3. In the same space, work (2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc). In each side space (there will be six of these if you are also working round 9 of the pattern. If you made a different number of rounds, your side space counts will be different) work (3 dc, ch 1). Repeat for each side space until you reach the next corner. In the corner space work (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc). Continue around the square in this manner, working the side and corners the same way, then join with a slip stitch to close the round. Fasten off yarn.

Part 2: Joining The Second Square

Grab a second square and tie on the same yarn color as the final round color of the other square into any corner space of a square you've previously made and ch 3. In the same space, work (2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc). In each side space work (3 dc, ch 1) You'll have 6 side spaces if you made the same number of rounds as mine. Repeat for each side space until you reach the next corner...this is where we'll make our first join. In the corner space work 3 dc. Instead of the ch 1, work a slip stitch into the other square' corner space, then work 3 dc back into the square. As you continue down the side of the square, work a slip stitch into the other square instead of a ch 1, and 3 dc into the side spaces of the square. When you get to the next corner, work 3 dc, slip stitch into the other square's corner space, then 3 dc into the corner to finish the joining. Work the rest of the square the way you normally would (3 dc, ch 1in each of the side spaces and 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in the corner). Join with a slip stitch to close round, fasten off yarn and you're ready to join another square!

Part 3: Joining Subsequent Squares

Repeat part 2 of the JAYGO portion of the instructions, joining each square until you have a "tube" shape.

*Important: If you have never tried the JAYGO technique, I highly recommend the video. 

Instructions for Scalloped Edging:

Tie edge color yarn into any ch 1 space along the edge of the cowl and ch 3, the work 7 dc in the same space.  *Work a slip stitch into the next space, then work 8 dc into the next space.  Repeat from * to the end of the round, joining the round with a slip stitch to close round.

Repeat for bottom edge of the cowl too.

Note: The space in between each granny square counts as a space too (where the two squares were joined using the JAYGO technique earlier.  Work into these areas as you would for any of the other spaces.

Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain.
