About the Pattern

This is the pattern for the children’s size Coz-e Luxe Cowl. You can find the pattern for the adult size here

This pattern is fairly simple as it does not have any increases or decreases and has a 5 row decrease, however when working with go for faux yarn it can sometimes be hard to see your stitches. One way to get through this is to make sure you are counting as you go and feeling the stitches instead of looking for the stitches. I include the total number of stitches at the end of each row in parenthesis. The beginning chain of each row does NOT count as a stitch. 

 

At the beginning of each row I will indicate whether you should be using the Hygge (weight 5) of the Faux Fur Yarn. 

This pattern will use hdc in the back loop. This means that instead of inserting your hook through both top loops, you insert it in the loop furthest away from you, which is the back loop.

This patterns also uses hdc in the third loop. The third loop is the loop below the front and back loops of the hdc. (see pic)  And if you still need help with this here is a an instructional video on Youtube by Heart Hook Home. If it does not say in the third loop, in that row you just do regular half double crochets.

 

Every time I switch yarns, I cut my yarn and at the end I weave all the ends in. This can be more tedious, but I feel it gives it a more finished look because if it fold down on itself you won’t be able to see all the places where you carried your yarn on the inside.
