Thick And Thin Cowl Scarf - Pattern

Hello, hello! To celebrate Little Crochet's 1st birthday (slightly late, admittedly), methinks a free pattern is in order. This is a stylish cowl scarf made with a gorgeous textured 100% wool yarn. It's very easy to make and will add instant class to any outfit, not to mention that it will keep you nice and toasty throughout those cold winter months.

I made a first one last year, originally as a gift, but loved it so much that I cheekily ended up keeping it for myself, tee hee.

Not long after, I bought a different shade of the same yarn. It sat for months at the bottom of my stash, until a couple of weeks ago, when I unearthed it and turned it into a second cowl:

So without further ado, let's move on to the pattern!

Here's what you'll need:
2x50g balls of Rowan Thick And Thin (Shale)
7mm crochet hook
Gauge: 10x10cm = 12x12 dc
Finished dimension: 27x56cm
Terminology (UK): chain (ch); slip stitch (sl st); double crochet (dc) = US sc; treble (tr) = US dc;
ch1 does not count as one stitch throughout
ch3 counts as one treble throughout

Cowl body:
Chain 19.
Row 1: tr into 4th ch from hook, tr in next ch to end, turn (16 tr).
Row 2: ch3 (counts as 1 tr), tr in next tr from previous row to end, turn.
Row 3: repeat row 2.
Row 4: ch1 (does not count as one stitch), dc in last tr from previous row, dc in next tr to end, turn. (16 dc).
Row 5: ch1, dc in last dc from previous row, dc in next dc to end.
Row 5-53: repeat row 5.
Row 54: ch3, tr in next dc from previous row, tr in next dc to end, turn.
Row 55: repeat row 2
Row 56: repeat row 2 without turning at the end. Do NOT fasten off.

*Ch1, 2 dc in the next three side trebles, 1 dc in each row end of dcs, ch1*, 1 dc in each stitch of the foundation chain, repeat from * to *, 1 dc in each tr from row 56, sl st to first ch1. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Sew two buttons along the side of the scarf, within the dc section and right up to the treble section as in the above pictures. The treble section on the opposite side will act as buttonholes when you wrap the cowl around your neck. There are various ways to wrap and button up this cowl: so experiment, have fun and keep warm!

There you have it, peeps, a quick and easy pattern just for you! Please let me know if you spot any mistakes or if anything is unclear. Thanks for reading :)
