DIY: Crocheted Toothed Cowl and Free Pattern

Crocheted Toothed Cowl and Free Pattern

It was only after I had finished crocheting this toothed cowl for Tomiko that I realized I used one of Pantone’s 2016 colour of the year – serenity. Instead of pairing it with rose quartz, the other colour of the year, I used white.

This cowl uses spike stitch to create an almost houndstooth-like pattern. It is then finished with ribbing.

Above, I made Tomiko a matching toothed hat finished with ribbing.

Crocheted Toothed Cowl

The finished toothed cowl measures 27 cm x 18 cm (10.5″ x 7″)

Supplies

1 skein aran-weight white yarn (I used Classic Elite Yarns Kumara)

1 skein aran-weight blue yarn (I used Classic Elite Yarns Kumara)

5.5 mm crochet hook

Directions

Ribbing

With the blue yarn, ch 7.

Row 1) Working in the back loops only, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 6 sc. Turn.

Rows 2-74) Ch 1, working in back loops only, sc in each ch a cross, turn.

Fold strip in half and join with sl st along short ends. Do not fasten off. Start the body of the cowl.

 

Body of Cowl

Row 1) Ch 1, working in ends of rows across one long edge of the ribbing, work 74 sc evenly around, join with sl st to beg sc.

Row 2) Ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Change to white yarn: Keep hook in place. Wrap white yarn around the hook and pull it through the loop from the blue to form a new loop. Pull the tail of the blue yarn behind the circle, so that the white yarn looks as though it is emerging from the blue yarn. Now working with the white yarn, join with a sl st to 1st sc.

Row 3) Ch 1, *sc in next st, spike st over next st. Repeat from * all the way around, join with sl st to beg sc.

Row 4) Ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Change to blue yarn and join with a sl st to 1st sc.

Row 5) Ch 1 in blue, *sc in next st, spike st over next st. Repeat from * all the way around, join with sl st to beg sc.

Row 6) Ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Change to white yarn and join with a sl st to 1st sc.

Rows 7-26) Repeat rows 3-6, ending with the blue yarn. Finish off.

 

Ribbing

For the second piece of ribbing, ch 7 using blue yarn.

Row 1) Working in the back loops only, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 6 sc. Turn.

Rows 2-74) Ch 1, working in back loops only, sc in each ch a cross, turn.

Fold strip in half and join with sl st along short ends. Do not fasten off. Sl st to 26th row of cowl body. Finish off and weave in ends.

    This is so pretty and looks fairly simple – (I am not great at crocheting). I haven’t been crocheting much lately, this has given me the bug again. Thanks!
