I am so proud of myself! This was the very first item I ever crochet using a diagram! Which means, if you are patient and know how to do a few basic crochet stitches you too can make this!
Oombawka Designs Crochet – Crochet Cheat Sheet is a great resource to convert the ‘foreign’ language of a diagram into crochet terms. Inside Crochet – Seeing Stitches is also great for a bit more information in understanding why the symbols are shaped the way they are. Of course, if you already know the crochet symbols this will be a breeze for you!
I first saw this diagram a few months back and figured there was no time like the present to give it a try. The diagram is written with an 8 stitch repeat, so I simply crocheted my CH in multiples of 8 (+1) to get the length I wanted.
I used Loops and Thread – Impeccable with a 4.5 hook, and had a total of 17 repeats (17 x 8 + 1).
When I first made this, I simply stitched up the sides together but really did not like the way it looked. So I ripped out the seam and sewed a button on the corner, then chained a loop and tied it off to the underside of the cowl.
My mother is currently in possession of this piece and gets lots of complements on it!
