  5. I just got back into crochet. This will be my first cowl and for some reason I can't get it right. It narrows inward for me every time. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm pretty sure I am following the pattern correctly but I may be wrong. Any help given would be appreciated. Thank you :)

  6. Amelia, if it is narrowing, you probably need to do a turn chain after each row. Hope you nailed it!

  11. What is meant by crochet in the round? Do you mean crochet in space or stitch?

    1. "Crochet in the round" means you crochet in a continuous circle, rather than back and forth in rows...hope this helps.

  12. I'm not sure what "crochet in the round" means either. Could you clarify?

    Thanks!

  14. I am confused by the crochet hook listed. Are you saying Size
    6 1/2 K? I have a Susan Bates "K" hook, but it says K or 10 1/2.

    1. Lovely work and cowl pattern, TFS, Stace Walker.

      Somom: An American "K" or 10 ½ size hook is the same as the 6.5mm hook sizing used in other countries. So you have the correct hook for this project. Enjoy the creating!

  16. I'm just starting to use patterns to crochet, and am a little lost. I have read the previous posts and understand "in the round' but don't understand the chains 1,2 & 3. I thought there was just one initial chain that the pattern is built from! Man do I need help!.

  17. What the 123 means is at the end of each round you will have a ch 1 if that round was done in sc, a ch 2 if your round was done in dc and if round was done in tr it will be ch 3 at the end of each round.

  18. Lovely! But confusing directions. Sad face. And I'm somewhat experienced. Pouty face.

    ReplyDelete
  19. If you see in the instructions where it says "chain 1" or "chain 3" before starting that round, when you get back to that spot, you slip stitch in whichever chain is the last one you made (will be at the top). Its actually easier than it sounds - once you get a row done, you'll see what it means.

  20. Once my daughter and Granddaughter see's this I'm sure I will be making a lot in lots of colors. Maybe I should just teach them how and give them the pattern. A very simple but beautiful Cowl. thanks for the Pattern

  21. Your pattern just caught my eye. The directions are easy to follow so far. I like the way you wrote them in order. Makes it easier to follow. I just got back into crocheting after 20 years, I'm a little rusty but it's coming back. Thanks for sharing.

  22. I love this pattern. I am new to crocheting but I am always looking for new patterns. This pattern is easy, straight forward, and makes for a great project. Thank you for sharing!!

  23. Would you have a hat pattern that would match?

  24. Easy instructions, but I have one question, you say in the round which is fine,so after you chain do you join to start doing the patt in the round? I see the term row 1 etc, so was wondering if it's crocheted back and forth and joined later or joined to make it round!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Can you do this in rows and connect it at the end!

  26. Love this pattern. Made a pink one as a gift and making a light green one for christmas!

  27. How many dc should there be in the round?

  28. Hi there, just wondering whether the abbreviations you are using are American crochet or British?
