Wavy Cowl Crochet Pattern

Wavy cowl


Time to complete: 2-3 hours.
Level: easy
Gauge is not important.
Needle: 8 mm or adjusted to yarn weight
Yarn:100-150 grams (150 yrds) of aran or bulky yarn. Other yarn types can be used, just adjust the initial lenght in multiples of 19.

Finished size: 80 cm / 32 inch diameter - 18 cm / 7 inches width

Ch - Chain
DC - Double Crochet
Sl St - Slip Stitch
BLO - Back loop only

Work all the single DCs on BLO, and the shell on both loops of previous row. This will create wavy lines along the cowl.
For a different effect, just DC on both loops of previous row.

4 DC decrease - *Yo, insert hook through stitch from last row, yo, pull loop through the stitch (3 loops on hook). Yo, pull through 2 loops* (you'll have 2 loops on hook). Repeat from * to * in the next 3 stitches from last row (5 loops on hook). Yo and pull through all 5 loops on hook. 4 DC decrease made.

4 DC Shell - Work 4 DC on the same stitch.

Begining chain can be adjusted in multiples of 19. In this case we have 5 repetitions of 19 stitches, giving us 95 ch. The stitch count at the end of each row is always the same as the begining chain.







R1 - Ch 95. Slip stitch in first chain, taking care not to twist chain. Ch 3, 3 DC in same stitch (counts as a 4 DC shell). *(Ch 1, skip next ch, DC) 3 times. Ch 1, skip next ch, 4 DC decrease.(Ch 1, skip next ch, DC) 3 times. Ch 1, skip next ch, 4 DC shell *. Repeat from * to * 4 times, ignoring last 4 DC shell on last repeat. Sl St on top of the starting chain, just before the DC that forms first shell.

R2 - (In this round, you start the first of the three single dc in the fourth dc of the shell from previous round and skip the closest stitches to the decrease set on both sides.)
Ch 4 (counts as 1 DC, 1 Ch), * 4 DC Shell in the middle of DC shell from last row (between 2nd and 3rd DC of 4 DC Shell). (Ch 1, skip next st, DC) 3 times. Ch 1, skip next st, 4 DC decrease (it will fall on top of decrease from last row).(Ch 1, skip next ch, DC) 3 times. Ch 1, skip next ch * Repeat from * to * 4 times, omiting last Dc on last repeat, ch 1. Slip stitch on 3rd ch of initial chain.

R3 - Ch 4, Dc on top of 1st Dc from 4 DC Shell of last row, Ch 1, * 4 DC Shell in the middle of DC shell from last row (between 2nd and 3rd DC of 4 DC Shell). (Ch 1, skip next st, DC) 3 times. Ch 1, skip next st, 4 DC decrease (it will fall on top of decrease from last row).(Ch 1, skip next ch, DC) 3 times. Ch 1, skip next ch * Repeat from * to * 4 times, omiting last 2 DC, Ch 1 on last repeat. Slip stitch on 3rd ch of initial chain.

R4 - Ch 4, skip next st, DC, Ch 1, skip next ch, Dc on top of 1st Dc from 4 DC Shell of last row, Ch 1, * 4 DC Shell in the middle of DC shell from last row (between 2nd and 3rd DC of 4 DC Shell). (Ch 1, skip next st, DC) 3 times. Ch 1, skip next st, 4 DC decrease (it will fall on top of decrease from last row).(Ch 1, skip next ch, DC) 3 times. Ch 1, skip next ch * Repeat from * to * 4 times, stopping after 4 DC decrease on last repeat, Ch 1. Slip stitch on 3rd ch of initial chain.

R5 to R9 - Slip stitch until next DC (2 st). Repeat R4. (Or as many rows as you like to obtain desired width).

Fasten off, weave in ends.
