Candy Cane Twist Cowl Pattern
We begin by crocheting our foundation chain row. Then we work back and forth in rows for the remainder of the project before seaming the two edges with a simple whipstitch seam.
R1: Ch 39, 2 dc in the fourth ch from the hook (sk 3 chs count as 1 dc). *Sk 3 ch, (1 sc, ch 3, 3 dc in the next ch).** Rep from * to ** across to the last 3 chs. Sk 2 chs, 1 sc in the last ch. Turn. [27 dc, 9 sc, 8 ch3sp)
R2-R55: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) and 2 dc in the first sc. *Sk 1 sc, sk 2 dc, 1 FPsc in the next dc, ch 3, 3 dc in the next ch3sp.** Rep from * to ** across to the last sc and 3 dc. Sk 1 sc and sk 2 dc, 1 sc in the ch3sp. Turn. [27 dc, 1 sc, 8 FPsc, 8 ch3sp)
Finish off leaving an 8-10 inch tail of yarn for seaming. Fold the rectangle in half until the edges of R1 and R55 touch and using your yarn end and yarn needle, whipstitch the two edges closed. Weave in any ends.
If you would like a longer scarf, simply continue working R2 until you reach your desired length before seaming with a whipstitch join method. Weave in ends.
