The Ombre Moss Stitch Cowl is worked in the round  and uses only three basic stitches: the chain stitch, the single crochet stitch and the slip stitch so this pattern would be great for everybody. It was made from one of my favourite yarns at the moment, Drops BabyAlpaca Silk. It’s so soft and perfect to use on crochet project like this cowl because looks so cozy. I used there three  colors to achieve the ombre effect.

The pattern has both chart and written instruction.

Materials & Tools:

  1. Yarn 3 skeins of Drops BabyAlpaca Silk (70% alpaca, 30% silk – 50g/167m) in 3 different colors: Yarn A powder (1306), Yarn B light old pink (3250), Yarn C heather (4088)
  2. Hook size 3,5 mm for body of the cowl and 2,5 mm for ribbing. Adjust  hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge
  3. Tapestry Needle (to weave and hide yarn ends)
  4. Scissor

Finished size
Approx 27 cm wide across middle (not across ribbing), approx 34 cm long.

25 sts and 30 rows = 10 cmx 10 cm using the moss stitch. Gauge is not crucial for this project. However, changes might result in a different yardage requirement.
