Because you can wear it in so many different ways we have nicknamed it "The Thneed" at our house.
I came up with the pattern, you are welcome to use the pattern to make or sell your own. I do ask that you link back to this post in your listing or if you blog about it. Thanks
If you don't want to make your own Thneed I will be listing this one in my shop, I would be happy to make you a custom cowl, if you would like.
The pattern is very simple, I really love the look of the simple stitches together.
This pattern is great for a beginner. If you have any questions I am more than happy to answer them. You can leave questions in the comments or e-mail them to me.
Gage for the project isn't important.
I used 4 skeins of Hometown USA yarn, it is super chunky size 6 yarn, in scarlet.
Hook size K.
Chain 150, join into first chain with a slip stitch. Making a circle, make sure you don't twist the chain.
Round 1 chain 2, DC into same stitch you joined in. DC into each stitch around. Join with slip stitch into first DC.
Round 2 chain 2, SC into same stitch you joined in. SC into each stitch around. Join with slip stitch into first SC.
Round 3 - 11 repeat round 1 and 2, join with slip stitch into first DC, fasten off and weave in ends.
If you would like to make a smaller cowl you can start with a chain of 100, and follow the pattern from there. To make it larger more like a shawl you can start with a chain of 200.
If you make one I would LOVE to see a photo. You can e-mail me a photo or share them on my Face Book page
If you need a refresher in how to hold your yarn and how to make a basic chain this tutorial will help. If you have questions about how to join the end of a round this tutorial from my friend Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me is great.
Thanks for stoppin' by and hangin' out.
