COWL

Start with black

Ch 57 (any multiple of 6 + 3)

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from the hook and in each ch across (54 dc)

Row 2: ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch and in next 5 stitches, *join burgundy in last step of last dc,

dc in next 6 stitches with burgundy,

NOTE: do not fasten off black or burgundy, carry it across the entire row

join black in last step of last dc, dc in next 6 stitches with black* repeat from * to * across (54 dc)

Row 3 & 4: carrying up both black and burgundy, repeat row 2

Row 5: drop black and fasten off black, carry up burgundy, ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch and in next 5 stitches, *join cherry in last step of last dc, dc in next 6 stitches with cherry, join burgundy in last step of last dc, dc in next 6 stitches with burgundy* repeat from * to * across (54 dc)

NOTE: do not fasten off burgundy or cherry, carry it through the entire row

Row 6 & 7: carry up burgundy and cherry, repeat row 5

At the end of row 7, drop cherry and fasten off, carry up burgundy and join black

Repeat rows 2 – 7 to row 64.

In the next row you will make the buttonholes

Row 65: drop burgundy, in black ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch and in next 7,  ch 2, skip 2 stitches, dc in next 10 stitches, ch 2, skip 2 stitches, dc in next 10 stitches, ch 2, skip 2 stitches, dc in remaining stitches

Do not fasten off

Next is the border. I wove in all my ends before starting the border.

Ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch and ch across, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the corner, *sc evenly across side to next corner, (sc, ch 2, sc) in corner* repeat from * to * around the entire piece, join to first sc with sl st

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Lay out your piece so the buttonholes are on the bottom left. Sew on buttons to the right along the bottom. I sewed one in the middle of the last 3 burgundy squares. This is the direction you want it to be when you put it on and button it.

      1. I love your yarn and your amazing patterns! I would love to win your yarn giveaway so I could have a chance to use your yarn since I can not afford to purchase your yarn!

    1. I’ll try… it’s so hard to explain! Put it over your shoulders so the buttonholes are on your left and the buttons are on the right. Then bring the button holes over to the buttons and button them (it will still look a bit awkward at this point) Then you’ll have to fiddle with it so the corners at the bottom line up. You could also secure it in this position and sew it so you don’t have to figure it out again.

      I have no idea if that made any sense… lol. Let me know if you need more help πŸ™‚

      1. I can’t figure out how to button it either. Been trying for a hour and just can’t figure it out. Is there a video that shows how to button them?

          1. Where is the graphic? I loved making this, love the look, but, OMG, I cannot figure out how to button!!

      2. I can’t figure our how to button this either even eith the detailed explanation. I loved making it tho and really enjoyed it up to this point. Was there a video to show?

      3. I think I have figured it out. What was confusing to me was the placement on the person. The 3 button holes are on the lower placement on person leaving the few inches of the side above the button holes closest to the chin and folded over.
        Not sure if this helps clarify for anyone either

    2. Would love to do this in black white and grey. Black would be black but white would equal as l? Grey would equal? In the other two colors. This is so lovely!

  1. Hi Breann…love your buffalo plaid cowl.
    Getting ready to start one for my daughter.
    One question, what does double crochet in the β€œsame” stitch mean?
    Thanks,
    PATTI

      1. So then each end section will have 7 dc instead of 6 Since you ch 3 the dc in same stitch. I just want to be sure. Love this cowl thanks pattern. I can’t wait to complete it and wear.
