I’m pleased to introduce to you the second free pattern in the B.hooked Crochet Fall 2014 line-up, the Fall Into Color Cowl! This beauty was designed to wear draped over one shoulder with the other shoulder “peeking” through the slit. The ribbed texture paired with Lion Brand’s beautiful Landscapes yarn makes it visually appealing as well as comfortable and warm to wear. I finished my Fall Into Color Cowl with a gorgeous, handmade 2.5″ button. Let’s dive into the free pattern shall we?

Gauge and Sizing
Your finished cowl will measure approximately 12″ wide by 28″ long.
- Chain (ch)

To obtain the ribbed texture, all stitches in this pattern must be worked in the back loop only (blo). The back loop is designated as the loop furthest away from you.
Dc in 4th chain from hook and in each chain across. Turn your work.
Ch 3. Working in the back loops only, dc into each stitch across.
Ch 3. Working in the back loops only, dc into the next 3 stitches. To begin forming the button loop, ch 4. Skip the next 4 stitches and dc into the 5th. Dc into the back loops only of the next 28 stitches. Turn your work.
Ch 3. Dc into the next 29 stitches. At this point you should have reached the chain 4 gap space from the previous row. Dc 4 into the chain 4 gap space. Dc into last 3 stitches.
Bind off and weave in your ends. With a darning needle, secure your button to the opposite corner of the button hole.
Optional: I finished off my cowl with a single crochet border around the entire thing. If you are an experienced crocheter, you may do so for a more polished look but it is not necessary.
