  • To create a wider cowl (taller), repeat R 2-5 additional times until you reach your desired height. Then complete the final row of the pattern.
  • Push all the dc5tog balls to the same side of your project. When I worked my R2 became my RS (right side). 
  • Stitch multiple is 4 + 1

 Weave in all remaining ends.

  1. Hi CL 🙂 I wrote it as it is – it is easier for some people to follow a pattern if they know what ‘stitch’ they are working and don’t have to remember how many yarn overs are required for a ‘bobble’ stitch. Bobble stitches can be done in a few different ways – just like puff stitches, cluster stitches and popcorn stitches. Plus people tend to call it one or the other interchangeably between bobbles and clusters so it can become very confusing if you are new to crocheting! I can’t find where in my pattern that I have written bobble stitch so I have not been using them (as far as I can tell) interchangeably in the instructions. If you can tell me where I put ‘bobble’ I can update it to be dc5tog instead! Thank you! Rhondda

  2. Why is the abbreviation ‘dc5tog’ designated as a bobble stitch and as a dc5tog decrease?
