The Welsh Braided Cowl has 2 unique parts to the design. There is a Shawl/Bandana and a Cowl part.

The Shawl/Bandana part of the design uses the Triad Stitch. The Cowl part of the design uses the Braided Puff Stitch.

Each stitch, the Triad and the Braided Puff Stitch each stitch’s meaning consist of 3. One definition of the triad stitch is a composition of 3 notes used in Welsh. Braid’s uses a multiple of 3 strands woven together.

Therefore the name of the design, Welsh Braided Cowl uses these 2 unique crochet stitches.

There are 3 sizes to choose from:
