2022 Fall CAL Week 3: Warm Vanilla Toffee Cowl

Welcome back to the 2022 Fiber Flux Fall Crochet Along...yay! Today marks week three of the CAL and we'll be seaming up our rectangle to create a gorgeous finished cowl!

We will be going over a few things today to begin:

  • Seaming the rectangle together
  • Finishing your cowl
  • Schedule of the CAL
  • Where to connect with other makers

Be sure to scroll down for the schedule with actual dates and what we'll be doing on each week.

*This is a self-paced project, so definitely go at the speed you feel most comfortable. The instructional videos and posts will be up forever and you will always be able to go back and watch again and again!

Here's our CAL schedule below for easy reference:
  • Friday, October 7: Introduction & Supplies
  • Thursday, October 13: The Basketweave Stitch Pattern
  • Thursday, October 20: Seaming & Finishing
  • Thursday October 27: CAL Project Recap!

Now that we're all up to speed, let's jump right into our seaming, shall we?

  • The first thing you'll want to do is grab a matching piece of yarn (a couple of yards), tapestry needle, and scissors.
  • Depending on how you finished your piece after crocheting, you can either use the long tail left after crocheting to seam, or cut a long piece of yarn and tie it on to seam.
  • Begin by laying your rectangle on a flat surface.  The basketweave stitch is reversible, so you you can use either side.
  • Lay it so the ending edge (last row crocheted) comes down in a frontal point (down the front of the chest).
  • Wrap it around so that the starting edge wraps around and sits on the shoulder and touches the  long side of the rectangle.
  • Seam as shown in the photo below.  I used the whip stitch for a easy and invisible seam.  
  • Weave in all ends and you're ready to wear your beautiful cowl!
  • If you need help wrapping your piece, aligning it for seaming, and seaming your rectangle, be sure to check out the video too!
