Every season, there seems to be one pattern that I am crazy excited about. I try to never put out anything that I’m not proud of, but there’s always one pattern that I think of as the highlight of my season. Last year it was the Rustic Slouch & Infinity Scarf set, and the year before that, the Sandy Cowl. This year, it’s the Shiplap Slouch & Cowl set, hands down!

Made with my favorite yarn, Cascade Longwood Sport, this set combines 3 of my favorite things: 3rd Loop HDC, Herringbone HDC, and fringe.

I actually designed the Shiplap Slouch a couple of months ago while on vacation in South Haven, Michigan:

And after I finished it, I just knew it needed a matching accessory, so I ordered more yarn and made a cowl!

Difficulty: Easy

Finished Size: 27" around x 10.5" tall (not including fringe)

Hook: H (5.00mm)

Yarn: Approximately 370 yards of Cascade Longwood Sport, a #3 light yarn.

Gauge: 8 rows of 9 HHDC = 2" square

You'll also need: Yarn needle, stitch marker

Abbreviations Used:
   ST
 (stitch)
   SL ST (slip stitch)
   SK (skip)
   CH (chain)
   HDC (half double crochet)
   HHDC (herringbone half double crochet; see "special stitch" below)

Special Stitch:
HHDC - Herringbone Half Double Crochet. Here's how you do it:

HHDC: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch. Yarn over, pull loop through stitch AND through first loop on hook (this is similar to a slip stitch motion). Two loops remain on hook. Yarn over and pull through both loops.

(If you need additional help, Moogly has an excellent video tutorial here. Please note that while her video considers the CH2 at the beginning of rows as a stitch, the pattern below does not.)

Notes:
(1) This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
(2) Pattern is worked in a continuous, seamless round until the band. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of rounds and do not join, turn or chain unless instructed to do so.
(3) Since we are working in a seamless round, your ribbing rows will not meet up perfectly in the back. This is unavoidable, and the alternative (joining each round) is much, much more obvious. (Trust me, I tried it.)
(4) Pattern uses regular HDC to set up each ribbing row. The abbreviation is very similar to HHDC, so pay attention!
(5) To find the "3rd loop" (as mentioned in Round 13 and every 4 rows after that), reach over your top loops and insert your hook into the loop just past (below) the top loop that is furthest from you. (Also called the Camel Stitch or RibHDC.)

The Pattern

To begin: CH120. Join, being careful not to twist the chain. (Briana K has a brilliantly easy tutorial on how to get this right every time - click here to view!)

Round 1: CH1; HHDC in each ST around. (120)

Rounds 2-7: HHDC in each ST around. (120)

Round 8: HDC in each ST around. (120)

Round 9: HHDC in 3rd loop of each ST around. (120)

Round 10: HHDC in each ST around. (120)

Round 11: HHDC in each ST around. (120)

Round 12: HDC in each ST around. (120)

Rounds 13-37: Repeat Rounds 9-12. (120)

Rounds 38-39: HHDC in each ST around. (120)

Round 40: HHDC in each of the first 116 STS (4 STS remain). SC in each of the next 2 STS. SL ST in each of the remaining 2 STS. (120)

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Fringe
Cut about 100 pieces of 9" long fringe. Take 4 pieces of fringe at a time and, using your hook, attach them along the bottom of the cowl at every 5 stitches.

    Have you used Caron Cakes yarn?. I have purchased 2 skeins and want to make a triangular neck scarf out of one skein. I don’t like the looks of the pattern on the wrapper. The knit version looks more like I want. It’s longer in the middle. Ever thought of doing something like it?

    • Rebecca October 23, 2016, 6:05 pm

      I haven’t used them yet 🙂

  • Erin October 24, 2016, 11:08 am

    What a great pattern! I started it yesterday and can’t get enough. I love the look of the cowl and can’t wait to start on the hat. (And I can’t believe I’ve never seen that link to the chaining tutorial before….such an easy trick for no twists in the starting chain!) Thank you, thank you!!

  • doreen October 25, 2016, 12:19 pm

    Do you think that Australian Superfine 100% wool Merino by Cleckheaton would work??
    I am having a hard time finding the yarn you used locally?

    love this pattern thanks you

    • Rebecca October 25, 2016, 6:32 pm

      I am not familiar with it, but any #3 light yarn should work fine for this pattern. You can always check your gauge. (If you’ll be making the slouch hat too, then DEFINITELY check your gauge. With a cowl, it doesn’t matter so much.)

  • Jana November 8, 2016, 7:31 pm

    Hi Rebecca. Thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern. Can you tell me what color Cascade yarn you used? It’s perfect!

    • Rebecca November 10, 2016, 8:56 am

      Hi Jana! It’s “Oatmeal”. I have used it a lot this season. They have many beautiful colors, but it’s my favorite 🙂

  • Laura November 21, 2016, 10:46 am

    Hello, I love this pattern and have been a regular at your blog and always find your patterns easy to follow, as well as keeping it fresh and fashionable. I love the fringe look and would love to bulk up the yarn and wondered if you have had experience with trying this pattern in a different weight. I have a couple of different skeins of Scarfie #5 bulky 312 yds each and am looking to do something with them.

    • Rebecca November 21, 2016, 11:10 am

      Thank you for the kind words! It would be pretty simple to make this cowl with a bulky yarn; just adjust the number in your starting chain to get the length you want it to be (there are no multiples to worry about). I think it would be cute with Scarfie 🙂

  • Connie Stout November 25, 2016, 2:21 pm

    I’m confused..1/7 is Harringbone stitch then the HDD and 3rd chain row but then it says only 4 red until the HDD repeat!

    • Rebecca November 25, 2016, 9:56 pm

      I’m not sure if I understand what your question is. Are you wondering why the first section is larger than the others? That’s simply because I was designing it to match the slouch hat, which has a band that is more rows than its other sections as well. It was simply a design choice.

  • Connie Stout November 26, 2016, 11:00 am

    Oh ok I got it!! Ty
