Sea Breeze Cowl

Sea Breeze Summer Cowl

The yarn used for this project is Silk Cloud in Mermaid at the Sea. I absolutely love the colors in this yarn. It reminded me so much of a perfect summer day at the beach so I was inspired to create something can be worn in the summer. This cowl is super lightweight and breathable. It will add the perfect accent to that cute summer outfit that needs just a little bit more.

Special Stitches

fhdc- foundation half double crochet
Chain 3(counts as 1st fdc). Yarn over and insert hook in 3rd chain from hook. Yarn over and pull through the st (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1 loop (this slip stitch is an important step but easy to forget). Yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook. That will complete one fhdc. To make your next fhdc *yarn over and insert the hook into the 1st sl st of the precious fhdc. Yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1 loop (this slip stitch is an important step but easy to forget). Yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook. Repeat till desired length.

hdc2tog- half double crochet two together
insert hook in first st. Yarn over and pull through st (two loops on hook). Insert hook into 2nd st. Yarn over and pull through st (three loops on hook). Yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook.

Notes
You may find it hard to sl st into the top of the ch3 to join each round, if this is the case then you can sl st into the space between the 1st and 2nd posts instead. Then you will sl st into the 2nd st as written in pattern.

Hi from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England!! I loved this sooooo much I made it my second crochet attempt even though I only had 1 ball of DK cotton – so it’s smaller but really sweet :-) I’ve tried to attach photos to no avail, sorry! Thank you so much for the pattern & tutorials, I am sure it will become one of my favourite patterns to use again & again xx
