Crochet Pattern: Crossed Cowl

By Candace – 7 Comments
Cowls are fun cool weather accessories, and there’s just something about bulky yarn that makes them even more fun. This pattern combines the openness of tall and crossed stitches with the warmth of bulky yarn for a great little cowl.
You will need to know how to do front crossed stitches to make this cowl.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 6″ (15 cm) wide, 15″ (38 cm) diameter

8 sts = 3″ (7.5 cm)
3 rows = 3″ (7.5 cm)
Gauge Swatch: 3″w x 3″h (7.5 cm x 7.5 cm) ch 11.
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across: 8 dc
Row 2: ch 1, turn, dtr in each dc across: 8 dtr

    I understand the cross stitch pattern, but am having trouble with the FCdtr stitch and skipping 4 stitches.then dtr in first skipped stitch. I end up with a third of stitches in my next row. HELP

    Did I miss something? Ahh, I’ve never seen a “st” that combines 2 different rows like (what I read anyway:) the “dtr”. So that’s 1row dc, next row sc = 1dtr? This I got after reading the “gauge” swatch. Harrumph.
