Misti Brioche Honeycomb Sweater and as I was making swatches of different crocheted stitches, namely the Back Loop Single Crochet I thought this would make a nice cowl.
déjà vu! This looked too familiar and as that rarely seems to happen between knitting & crochet I couldn't resist.
So... the crocheted Canadian:
1 skein of Magnum by Cascade (@112.5m/123yds)
25mm or U hook
Gauge: 1sc & 1row = 2.5cm (1")
This can be worked over any number of stitches.
Chain 62 on the tight side. This will pull the scarf in and make it lay nicely when finished.
Row 1: 1 SC in 2nd ch from hook, 1 SC in each ch to end, turn.
Row 2: 1 CH, skip first sc, 1 SC in back loop of each sc, ending 1 SC in 1 ch, turn.
Repeat Row 2 (7 times) or until piece measures 14cm/5.5".
Sew ends together.
Weave in ends, wear & enjoy!
Finished measurements measured flat: @14cm X 61-137cm or 5.5" x 24-60"
Cowl pictured was @152cm/60".
Work pattern for at least 61cm(24") for a shorter cowl.
If making a shorter cowl you can get 2 cowls out of 1 skein of Magnum.
Well, I've finally done it, taken the plunge and joined Facebook.
