Add a phenomenally soft, gorgeously textured scarf-like accessory to your wardrobe with the Red Heart Stellar Sparkling Shells Cowl! The shades in this bulky yarn seem to melt into each other, making you look cool as you stay warm. The easy shell stitch crochet pattern is easy to work with too!
Use a gauge of 2 shells (4") 5 rows (5") to crochet a cowl that measures 6" wide x 68" in circumference. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
- Time:several hours
Row 1 (right side):Dc in 4th ch from hook (beginning ch counts as first dc), skip next 3 ch, shell in next ch, skip next 5 ch, shell in next ch, skip next 3 ch, 2 dc in last ch, turn 12 dc and 2 ch-3 spaces.
Row 2:Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), dc in first dc, shell in each of next 2 ch-3 spaces, 2 dc in top of beginning ch, turn. Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 68 inch. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
Matching sts across last row and foundation ch, sew short ends together to form cowl. Weave in ends.
