Quick Ripple Cowl




A while back Chelsea asked me to come up with a cowl pattern for this stitch pattern.  I had some really pretty bulky yarn with sequins that I have been wanting to try out.  I was able to make this cowl in a few hours.  Enjoy!


Materials:


  • Loops and Threads Dewdrops Bulky Yarn--Turquoise and Rust
  • Loops and Threads Charisma Bulky Yarn--Dark Blue
  • L hook
  • Smaller hook for weaving in
Gauge:
1 pattern run = 4"; the pattern runs over 11 sts

Special Stitches:
V stitch--V:  Double crochet (dc), chain (ch) 1, dc all in same stitch (st)

Abbreviations:
ch(s)--chain(s)  dc(s)--double crochet(s)  dc3tog--double crochet 2 together
dc2tog--double crochet 2 together  sk--skip


Pattern:
I used 3 colors of yarn, but if you only use one color it should only take about 1 skein.

With Dark Blue yarn Ch 90. (I like to put a stitch marker in every 10 to 20 chs to keep track of my count)

Row 1:  Dc in 3rd, *ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch, V in next ch, ch 3, V in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch, dc3tog*  7 times, ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch,  V in next ch, ch 3, V in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch  dc2tog, fasten off, leaving a tail long enough to weave in several times. Turn.

I'm using the lighter yarn in the pictures so it's easier to see the stitches.



Row 2:  Attach Turquoise yarn, ch 3, dc in next dc, *ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1, (V, ch 3, V) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in second dc, ch 1, dc3tog in next 3 dcs (see chart)* 7 times, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1, (V, ch 3, V) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in second dc, ch 1, dc2tog in next to dcs. Fasten off, leaving a tail long enough to weave in several times. Turn.




Row 3: Repeat Row 2  with Rust yarn
Row 4: Repeat Row 2 with Dark Blue yarn
Row 5: Repeat Row 2 with Rust yarn
Row 6: Repeat Row 2 with Turquoise yarn
Row 7: Reapeat Row 2 with Dark Blue yarn

Finishing

Using a smaller hook (I used a G hook) join the short ends of the cowl together by weaving in the ends.



Here's how the front of the seam looks when it's finished.



It's pretty much invisible.
