Helpful Video Tutorials
- This project is worked in continuous rounds – you may wish to use a stitch marker to mark your place – but as this is a casual cowl you really can just ‘eyeball’ your starting point. I used the yarn end from R1 as my ‘queue’ for the row end and counted based on this point in the cowl. I have however written out specific instructions for those of you who prefer them 🙂
- Chain a multiple of 2
- We will be counting the ch1 as a stitch for this project because it just makes it easier to keep track 😉
R1: Chain 230 stitches; beg in the 2nd ch from the hook and work 1 sc in each st across. 
Bring the 2 ends of the R1 together to form a large loop without twisting it and continue working in rounds as follows:
R2: *1 sc in the next st, ch 1, sk 1 sc**. Rep from * to ** around to the last sc. 1 sc in the last sc. 
R3: *Ch 1, sk 1 sc, 1 sc in the next ch1sp**. Rep from * to ** around to the last sc. Ch 1, sk 1 sc. 
R4: *1 sc in the next ch1sp, ch 1, sk 1 sc**. Rep from * to ** around to the last ch1sp. 1 sc in the last ch1sp. 
R5: Rep R3 
R6: Rep R4 
R7: *Ch 1, sk 1 sc, dc2tog puff st in the next ch1sp**. Rep from * to ** around to the last sc. Ch 1, sk 1 sc. 
R8: *1 sc in the next ch1sp, ch 1, sk 1 dc2tog puff st**. Rep from * to ** around to the last ch1sp. 1 sc in the last ch1sp. 
R9-R25: Rep R3 and R4 
R26: Rep R7 
R27: Rep R8 
R28-R31: Rep R3 and R4 
R32: Rep R7 
R33: Rep R8 
R34: 1 sc in each sc and each ch1sp around. Finish off with an invisible join and weave in ends. 
Find your starting chain yarn end and use it to weave the edge together using an invisible join technique.
