Corner 2 Corner Collar Cowl

Today I’m delighted to share my latest pattern with you, it’s the Corner 2 Corner Collar Cowl.  This is a perfect beginner project, for someone wishing to try the c2c crochet technique, with the unusual asymmetric collar, no one will ever guess its such an easy project.  I used a self striping variegated yarn for colour interest, so it looks gorgeous but keeps things really simple by avoiding any colour changes.  I used 1 whole 100g ball of DK yarn, so being only one ball means it’s a winner all round, you must have that one ball of yarn that isn’t enough to make anything big or doesn’t go with another yarn? This is the project destined for that yarn!

I will give the best instructions that I can, to help you if you’re unfamiliar with c2c, I have a picture tutorial on the PDF patterns, this is also saved to my highlights on instagram (@craftycruella) if you’d prefer a video tutorial? search c2c on You Tube, you will find loads of videos to help you!!!

Notes

This Cowl scarf is made in one simple piece, and no need for button holes, the nature of the c2c stitch creates a hole that is the parfect size for a 1.5cm button.

In c2c one block is made up of ch3 + 3dc, Row 1 has 1 block, Row 2 has 2 blocks, Row 3 has 3 blocks etc…..
