Friday Freebie: Crochet Rainbow Granny Stripe Cowl Pattern

Pin It

Haha, I should’ve come up with a shorter name. So here it is. Finally the next Friday Freebie: a Crochet Rainbow Granny Stripe Cowl Pattern.

It’s a quick project that’s easily finished within a couple of hours. The basic pattern is besides some slight alterations equivalent to the Granny Stripe Blanket Pattern by Lucy of Attic24.

I made this cowl as a Christmas present for the lovely Sari of mondgras.de

What you’ll need:

  • DK/Light Worsted yarn in six colors (this pattern could be used to reduce your stash)
  • 5mm crochet hook
  • two large buttons
  • a darning needle

The pattern is written with US crochet terms.

Gauge:

After row 1 the width should be about 42 cm.

Abbreviations:

single crochet (sc)
half double crochet (hdc)
double crochet (dc)

Pattern:

Chain 66.

Row 1
Make a hdc in the 2nd chain from hook. Continue with hdcs till end of row. That means you skip one chain and work a total of 65 hdcs.
Turn the work.

Row 2
Chain 3 (counts as first dc). Make one dc into first stitch.
* skip two stitches, work 3 dc into next stitch * Repeat everything between the stars ** until there are only three stitches left.
Skip two stitches and work 2 dcs into last stitch of the row.
Turn the work.

Row 3
Chain 3 (counts as first dc). Work thre dcs into every space between the 3 dc clusters of previous row.
Make one dc in last stitch (that’s the third chain of the three chains at the beginning of previous row).

Row 4

Because I’m lazy, that’s the point where I simply tie in the second color very, very closely (with a tail long enough to weave in the end later) to the last dc I just made and continue working with the new color. Cut off old color but leave a tail so you can weave in the end later.

Turn the work.

Chain 3 (counts as first dc). Make one dc into first space (that’s the one between the previous row’s last dc and last 3 dc cluster).
Work thre dcs into every space between the 3 dc clusters of previous row until there’s only one space left (that’s the one between the first 3 dc cluster of the previous row and the 3 chains at the very beginning of row 3).
Work one dc into space. Work one dc into last stitch (that’s the third chain of the three chains at the beginning of previous row).
Turn the work.

Row 5
Chain 3 (counts as first dc).
Work thre dcs into every space between the 3 dc clusters of previous row.
Work one dc into last stitch (that’s the third chain of the three chains at the beginning of previous row).

 

Repeat rows 4 and 5 four more times.
Turn the work.
Chain one. Skip first stitch and work hdcs into all stitches till end of row.
Fasten off and weave in loose ends.

To finish the cowl add the two buttons at one end of the cowl. I sewed mine to the upper rigth corner and about half way down.

Very easy and a cute way to add some color to grey winter days. Hope you like the pattern. If there are any questions (actually, this is my first crochet pattern ever) please feel free to comment. And last but not least: a picture of me trying on the Rainbow Cowl ;)
