Crystal Palace Yarns - FREE PATTERN - Crochet
Description: This crocheted cowl is accentuated by the beautiful slow-stripes of Mochi Plus. The colors change by themselves. Working in the back of the stitch pushes the line of V's forward, creating horizontal ridges that are reminiscent of vertical knitted ribbing.
Level: Easy (Single Crochet Foundation, sc, hdc, sl st)
Size: 8" high x 26" circumference
Gauge: 14 hdc=4"
Abbreviations: hdc- half double crochet; rnd- round; sc- single crochet; sl st- slip stitch
Work 92 sts in Single Crochet Foundation. On last st, stop before pulling yarn through last time (2 loops on hook). Being very careful not to twist the chain, join by inserting hook into bottom (chain part) of first st and draw through all loops on hook.
Next Rnd: Hdc in each sc around.
Next Rnd: Hdc is each hdc around, but instead of working into the top of the previous row, work each hdc in back band behind st. (Click here to see a picture of this technique.)
Repeat last rnd until piece measures 8" high. Work 2 sc's and 2 sl sts. Fasten off and weave in ends.
