April Scarf of the Month Club Patterns – Sea Blues Cowl Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Crochet this beautiful Sea Blues Cowl with 2 balls of light-weight yarn [3] and a 4 mm [G] hook. This easy-to-remember stitch pattern is worked in rounds so you can carry your yarn up the inner seam and still use multiple colors. The top and bottom edges are mirror images of one another so you can wear this cowl without worrying about which end is up. The edging is completely reversible so you can fold it over and still have a finished look. Simple, pretty and balanced, the Sea Blues Cowl makes a beautiful accessory and a lovely gift.

1 Sea Blues Cowl #scarfofthemonthclub2018 Oombawka Design Crochet PIN

Sea Blues Cowl Pattern Instructions

This project is crocheted in continuous rounds after R1.

R1: (RS) With Color A: ch 145, 1 dc in the 4th ch from the hook (sk 3 ch count as 1 dc). *Ch 1, sk 1 ch, 1 dc in each of the next 2 chs**. Rep from * to ** across. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join. [96 dc, 95 ch1sp, 1 sl st]

Bring the ends of R1 closer together to allow yourself to continue working in rounds.

I just left the edge as it was and seamed my edges at the end of my project but you can join the bottom chain edge now if you’d like.  Or use a safety pin or stitch marker to hold the edges together.

R2: Working in the ch1sp around only. Sk all other sts unless indicated. With Color B: Ch 3, 1 sc in the first ch1sp. *Ch 2, 1 sc in the next ch1sp**. Rep from * to ** around and working the last sc in the sp beneath the sl st to join. Change your yarn color to Color A on the last yarn over the last sc. Sl st in the next ch2sp to join. [48 ch2sp, 96 sc, 1 sl st]

R3: Working in the ch2sp around only. Sk all other sts unless indicated. Continue with Color A: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in the same ch2sp. *Ch 1, 2 dc in the next ch2sp**. Rep from * to ** around. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join.  [96 dc, 95 ch1sp, 1 sl st]

R4 – R21: Rep R2-R3

R22: Working in the ch1sp around only. Sk all other sts unless indicated. With Color B: Ch 3, 1 sc in the first ch1sp. *Ch 2, 1 sc in the next ch1sp**. Rep from * to ** around and working the last sc in the sp beneath the sl st to join. Change your yarn color to Color A on the last yarn over the last sc. [48 ch2sp, 96 sc, 1 sl st]

R23: With Color A: Ch 2, 1 WST in the first sc. *Ch 2, 1 WST in the next sc**. Rep from * to ** around. Change your yarn color to Color B on the last yarn over the last WST. [48 ch2sp, 96 WST, 1 sl st]

R24: With Color B: Ch 2, 1 WST in the first sc. *Ch 2, 1 WST in the next sc**. Rep from * to ** around. Ch 2 and sl st to the initial WST to join (or use the invisible join technique to join instead of the sl st). Finish off and weave in ends. [48 ch2sp, 96 WST, 1 sl st]

If you would prefer to see it demonstrated in a video tutorial please see my video >HERE< I’ve linked it to start at the point where I demonstrate the technique.

Turn your project to work around the beginning chain edge. If you did not seam your edge together yet, please seam the edge closed now. 

Finishing Edging

We are going to mimic the edge we just added in R22-24, by adding 3 more rounds to the initial chain row.

R1: Working into the ch1sp created by skipping the 1 chs in R1. Sk all other sts unless indicated. Join Color B yarn with 1 sc in the ch1sp after the first 2 dc of R1.  *Ch 2, 1 sc in the next ch1sp**. Rep from * to ** around and working the last sc in space between the first and last set of dc where you seamed the edges together.  Change your yarn color to Color A on the last yarn over the last sc.  [48 ch2sp, 96 sc, 1 sl st]

R2: With Color A: Ch 2, 1 WST in the first sc. *Ch 2, 1 WST in the next sc**. Rep from * to ** around. Change your yarn color to Color B on the last yarn over the last WST. [48 ch2sp, 96 WST, 1 sl st]

R3: With Color B: Ch 2, 1 WST in the first sc. *Ch 2, 1 WST in the next sc**. Rep from * to ** around. Ch 2 and sl st to the initial WST to join (or use the invisible join technique to join instead of the sl st). Finish off and weave in ends. [48 ch2sp, 96 WST, 1 sl st]

  1. Hi Norma, This project is actually worked in rounds. We don’t turn at the end of the rows so it would not translate well into a shawl worked in rows. It would need to be finished off at the end of every row and then rejoined at the beginning of the next (without turning) which would give you 2 yarn ends for every row you work. If this is what you want to do 🙂 though you would need to chain a multiple of three stitches. So chain your shawl width as many chains as it takes and make sure it is divisible by 3. Then add 1 additional chain to start for your first row.

    Hope this helps! Rhondda

  2. Great Day, Can you alter the instruction to do a shawl. I love that stitch, but need help.
