Lily Cowl


One hank Cascade Sunseeker yarn, or any other DK weight yarn
4.5mm Crochet hook
Tapestry Needle (for weaving ends)

What to Know:

Treble Crochet (TC)
Half-Double Crochet (HDC)
Single Crochet (SC)
Chain (CH)

Pattern (written in US terms):

Chain 27; turn; 
ROw 1: In the 3rd chain from the hook, HDC 25 across; chain 2; turn;
Row 2: HDC 25 across; chain 4; turn;
Row 3: TC 25 across; chain 2; turn;
Row 4: HDC 25 across; chain 4; turn;
Row 5: HDC 25 across; chain 4; turn;
Row 6: TC 25 across; chain 2; turn;

Repeat rows 4-6 until desired length. To attach, hold starting chain and final row together, SC across. This makes a seam on the inside of the cowl. To make the cowl reversible, slip stitch instead of single crochet.

The Wordy Bit

This yarn came to me in a big collection (the same one as the Noro Hakone). As soon as I saw the sunny yellow with metallic accent, I thought of my daughter Lily. Since I had just made the Noro Cowl for me, I figured I would design a unique cowl for her using the one hank. 

This is a cotton blend yarn, so the result is a light, airy cowl that is very versatile--both in style and color. The yellow can be muted, as shown above, or it really pops against white, as below.
Isn't that fantastic? This is a great piece to dress up jeans and a t-shirt or to go along with a sweater dress. I made this for my toddler, but it's long enough that she can wear it for as long as it lasts.
