Double Drop Cowl

August 2014
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
16 stitches and 13 rows = 4 inches
6.0 mm (J)
279 yards (255 m)
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

This cowl uses drop stitches (where you work stitches into a previous row) to make a warm but still light and stretchy fabric that works perfectly with the self-striping property of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn. You can also substitute any worsted weight yarn you like. It would look great alternating solid colors for a bolder stripe effect!

One skein of worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Winery, 270 yds)
Size J hook
Yarn needle for finishing

Finished measurements: Approx. 26 x 9 inches before stitching ends together
Gauge: 16 stitches across and 13 rows high = 4 inch square
Your double crochets should be about ¾ inch tall

You could easily adapt this pattern to make it longer, shorter, or wider by adjusting your starting chain, using any multiple of 4 plus 2, and then adding or subtracting rows as needed. If you plan to make a larger cowl or scarf, I would recommend buying 2 skeins of yarn and making sure they’re the same dye lot (there can be quite a difference in color from one lot to another).
