I know a lot of you have been asking for my cowl pattern since I posted this photo to instagram:
It works up so quickly and only requires two skeins of yarn! Love having easy crochet projects like these in my back pocket for gifts around this time of year. To be completely honest, I have no idea if this “stitch” has a real crochet word but in my head it has a “step-down” sort of look to it hence me calling it the stair stitch! The wonderful texture is formed by crocheting a repeated pattern of triple crochet – double crochet – single crochet for each row. When you turn your work you end up completing a triple crochet into all the single crochet’s and single crochets into all of the triple crochets. The double crochets always get a double crochet worked into them.
Here is another example of how this stitch looks completed:
It really does produce such a lovely drape and feel and the small like bubble it creates is wonderful. Hope you give this project a try- as always here is my beginner crochet video if you need it!
Chunky Tweed Stair Stitch Cowl:
2 skeins Deborah Norville Chunky Tween yarn (I buy from JoAnn’s)
1 size N15 (10.00mm) crochet hook
Chain 21. Chain 2 more (you will always chain 2 more before you turn your work).
Into 3rd chain from hook complete a triple crochet (yarn over twice, insert hook into stitch, pull through so there are 4 loops on your hook, then continue). Next stitch complete a double crochet (yarn over once, insert hook into stitch, pull through so there are 3 loops on your hook, then continue). Then a single crochet into the next stitch.
Repeat triple crochet > double crochet > single crochet for entire work. Chain 2. Turn.
Repeat each row identically to the row before using two entire skeins of yarn.
Use a yarn needle to stitch the cowl together at the end.
*To change the width of this pattern, always begin with a chain that has multiples of 3.*
I’ve got 4 more left to make today so I had better hop to it.
