Notes:
– This pattern is written in US terms
– The DC in this pattern is worked into the 3rd loop of the previous row of HDC stitches. A tutorial is included below.
– Due to the texture of the yarn, keeping a moderately loose tension would be helpful in the event of having to pull out stitches. Regularly counting your stitches would be beneficial as the yarn texture can make it easy to
miss a stitch.
– Beginning CH 1 or CH 2 does not count as a stitch.

Materials Needed:
– Approximately 180 yards of Caron Latte Cake (about 1/3 of a full cake)
– 6mm hook
– Yarn needle
– Scissors
– Measuring Tape

Stitches:
CH – Chain
HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC – Double Crochet


Special Stitch Tutorials:
3rd Loop of HDC: The 3rd loop is found in the front of the stitch (facing you). It is below the traditional “V” shape found at the top of the stitch. Below is a photo example using worsted weight acrylic so the stitches are clear and visible.


Pattern:
Begin by chaining 31.

Row 1:
Into the second CH from your hook, place 1 DC. Continue by placing 1 DC into each CH until the end of the row.

CH 1 and turn.

(30 DC stitches)

Row 2:
Into the first stitch, place 1 HDC. Into the next 29 stitches, place 1 HDC.

CH 2 and turn.

(30 HDC stitches)

Row 3:
[Working into the 3rd loop of the HDC stitches begins here]
Into the 3rd loop of the first HDC stitch, place 1 DC. Into the 3rd loop of the next 29 HDC stitches, place 1 DC.

CH 1 and turn.

(30 DC stitches)

Row 4:
Into the first stitch, place 1 HDC. Into the next 29 stitches, place 1 HDC.

CH 2 and turn.

(30 HDC stitches)

Row 5:
Into the 3rd loop of the first HDC stitch, place 1 DC. Into the 3rd loop of the next 29 HDC stitches, place 1 DC.

CH 1 and turn.

(30 DC stitches)

Repeat rows 2-3, 24 more times. You should be ending on a DC row. Ch 1.

(53 rows total from row 1 to this point)

Row 54:
Into this stitch and each stitch across, place 1 HDC.

(30 HDC stitches)

At this point, lying flat, your cowl should measure approximately 28 inches long and 10 inches wide (depending on your tension). Please feel free to repeat the row sequence as required if you want to add length. Note that extending your pattern will adjust the yardage mentioned in the beginning.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail (I left 45 inches) for seaming.

Seaming The Edges:
Lay your cowl flat with the “V” design facing up. Fold your two ends in to meet at the middle. The “V” design is now on the inside. Because the final row is an HDC stitch, you can stitch the ends together through the 3rd loop to maintain a consistent “V” design without a visible seam. I like to use the invisible seam method but please feel free to use whatever joining method you prefer.


Fasten off and weave in all ends. This completes your cowl! I hope it keeps you cozy and warm all winter long. I’d love to see your version! Tag me on Instagram @sweet_bee_crochet to show off your beautiful work.
