Cowl (Green with Envy)By Berta Gilholm
Materials:JoAnn Sensations, Green/Cream Rainbow Boucle #4 WW, 88% acrylic/12% nylon (takes no more than 4 oz.) This was a leftovers project you can substitute any #4 Boucle you want for this project, but I suggest you use a variegated boucle for the same look.
Crochet Hook size - US L/8mm
Notes: Ch 3 counts as dc on every dc rowThis is a super easy and quick project. It is crocheted in an approximate 15” x 28” rectangle, the ends are then whip stitched together. The Bow around the cowl is optional, but cute and made with a double yarn chain.
Stitch Abbreviation: Ch = chain, Sc = single crochet, Dc = double crochet.
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across, turn (35 sc)
Row 2: Ch 3, Dc in next sc and in each sc across, turn (35 dc)
Row 3: Ch 3, Dc between each dc across, (dc in space of ch 3 at end of row), turn,
You should equal 35 dc on every row.
Row 4 through Row 38: Repeat Row 3.
Row 39: Ch 1, Sc in every dc and top of ch 3 at end of row, Fasten off leaving a 2 ½ “ tail for sewing.
Fold rectangle end to end and whip stitch across through the sc rows. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Optional Bow Chain: I took a 10 foot piece of the darker green area of the boucle, doubled it up and chained 36 times, end off , trim ends and tie in a bow around/through Cowl across the sc rows.
