Simple stitches paired with a gorgeous gradient yarn take this project from an exercise in crochet fundamentals to an artistic piece that you can be proud to wear, even as a beginner! Using four different crochet hooks with four different stitches may sound like a bit of a hassle, but it is an excellent way to test out and determine your natural tension, which will come to be more and more important as you develop crochet skills beyond the basics.

BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY:
-Single Crochet
-Half Double Crochet
-Double Crochet
-Treble Crochet

SUGGESTED MATERIALS:
-Wollelfe Extrafine Merino & Silk Gradient Yarn in Fresh or Color of Choice, 100g for a small cowl
-D/3.25mm, E/3.5mm, F/3.75mm, and G/4.0mm Crochet Hooks
-Stitch Marker(s)
-Scissors
-Darning Needle
-Buttons (optional)

A NOTE ON GAUGE:
Using suggested materials as stated above, 20 stitches equaled 4” on my hooks with the final piece measuring about 28” long and 11.5 high – adding the buttons stretch it to about 12” along the joined edges.
