PATTERN NOTES This cowl begins with neck ribbing that is worked flat. After the correct length is achieved, the narrow edges are joined together to create a loop. The main body of the cowl is worked in turned rounds, starting by working directly into the side of the neck ribbing. After working increases using single crochet, you will use the Lemon Peel stitch. This fun stitch creates texture by alternating sc and dc across a row, then lining up stitches in the following rows so each sc is above a dc from the row below, and each dc is above a sc from the row below. You will also explore making double crochet clusters with specific placements that create eyelets throughout the cowl. Finally, a drawstring is created during finishing and woven in and out of the neck ribbing to create an adorable tie with tassels or beads added to each end.
