There is such a wide variety of different stitches out there and have realized that I really only know a few (if im completely honest with myself). So I have decided it was about time I expand my knowledge of crochet stitches, this is when I came across this fun looking stitch on Moogly Blog, I knew I had to give it a try.
The Third Loop Half Double Crochet, may sound really confusing. But I assure you, with this amazing tutorial found Here at Moogly Blog you will soon be breezing through this super easy cowl!
And by super easy, I mean Really! Super! Easy! and did I mention you can customize this to any size? Or Don’t make a cowl at all, but a scarf instead! Or an Infinity Scarf!
You can also pretty much any type of yarn you would like to use! I close to use some yarn I had on hand – Loops and Thread Impeccable for the Hansom Boy and Loops and Thread Woolike for the Lovely Little Miss.
So, how did I achieve such a beautiful cowl? Let me tell you.
