In my attempt to put out more pattern sets this season, today’s pattern is a match for the previously-released Riverbed Slouch Hat – the Riverbed Cowl!

Just like the matching slouch, this cowl is soooo easy. It uses the same yarns as the hat — Lion Brand’s Tweed Stripes (shown in “Caramel”) and Vanna’s Choice (shown in “Linen”).

Level: Easy

Size: 32" around x 12" tall

Materials:

  • K hook (6.50mm) and I hook (5.5mm)
  • Yarn needle
  • 170 yards of Yarn A: Lion Brand Tweed Stripes (sample shown in Caramel) and 110 yards of Yarn B: Vanna's Choice in a coordinating color (sample shown in Linen). Tweed Stripes is a Bulky #5 yarn, and Vanna's Choice is a Worsted/Aran #4 yarn.
  • Stitch marker (a bobby pin works great)

Gauge:
With larger hook, 6 rows of 7 HDC & SC (alternate each row) = 2" square. (Gauge is not crucial in this pattern, as instructions for obtaining the correct final measurements are given throughout the pattern.)

Abbreviations Used:
ST/STS (stitch/stitches)
CH (chain)
SL ST (slip stitch)
SC (single crochet)
HDC (half double crochet)
BLO (back loop only)

Notes:

(1) This pattern is written in American Standard terms.
(2) After you create the ribbed band, this pattern is worked in a continuous, seamless round. Do not join, chain or turn until instructed. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each round.
(3) In the pattern for the Slouch Hat, which was released first, the thicker #5 weight yarn was used first and was referred to as "Yarn A", with the thinner #4 weight yarn being referred to as "Yarn B". For consistency, I decided to keep those designations in this pattern even though we start with the thinner #4 weight yarn this time. (In case you were wondering why I start with "Yarn B" below.)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

To begin:
Using smaller hook and Yarn B, CH7. 

Row 1:  SC in 2nd CH from hook and in each remaining CH. (6)

Row 2: CH1, turn. SC in first ST. SC in BLO of each of the next 4 STS. SC in last ST. (6)

Rows 3-92 (or until ribbing is about 28" long): Repeat Row 2. (6)

Fasten off and use your tail to sew the short ends of the ribbing together to form a circle.

Body
Switch to larger hook. Attach Yarn A at the seam of the ribbing and CH1. We will now work in continuous rounds.

Round 1: SC evenly around the entire circle, putting 1SC in each ribbing row. (92)

Round 2: HDC in each ST around. (92)

Round 3: SC in each ST around. (92)

Rounds 4-27 (or until cowl measures about 11" tall): Repeat Rounds 2 & 3. (92)

Attach Yarn B and switch back to smaller hook.

Rounds 28-31: SC in each ST around. (92)

Round 32: SC in each of the first 90 STS. SL ST in each of the remaining 2 STS. (92)

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

      Yes, thank you! I’ve had a few ups and downs throughout the 3rd trimester as far as illnesses go, but I am currently on an “up” and hoping to stay there for a while 🙂

  • Diane November 21, 2016, 4:47 pm

    Thanks for the pattern for the beautiful cowl! Just wanted to check before I get too far along. Is the ribbing supposed to be only 14″ even though the cowl is 32″ around?

    • Rebecca November 21, 2016, 6:07 pm

      WHOOPS, no! That should say about 28″. I must’ve had it folded in half and was not thinking clearly. 🙂

      • Diane November 21, 2016, 6:17 pm

        Thank you for your prompt response! That makes more sense to me!

  • Joan December 17, 2016, 9:18 pm

    Thank you so much. I will attempt this for my granddaughter.

  • Joan December 17, 2016, 9:22 pm

    And congratulations on the impending birth of your child.
