Isla Cowl

A Free Crochet Pattern


I love a good cozy cowl, don't you? I especially love one that I can manipulate and change to suit my needs. So I'm providing you a pattern for one. Cowls with button bands are so versatile and easy to make. You basically make a rectangle and add buttons. Easy Peasey. I have added some cabling for some visual texture. I have also used bulky yarn to make this a quick project.

Iris Crochet Edging

  A Free Crochet Pattern




Sometimes you have to join two worlds to make something great. I had an idea in my head and it just needed knit and crochet to make it happen. I wanted a cowl with a beautiful drape, and with a feminine lace to finish it off.   I also wanted something light for those cool late summer nights that happen here in Toronto because of the lake.

Light and with lots of drape meant this was going to be a knit cowl. I wanted the lace to come to points, and with knitting you can be pretty limited on coming to points, so that means the lace would have to be crochet.

Then I was in a conundrum. How would I promote my new pattern? Most sites want either knit or crochet not both at the same time. So I have decided to promote just the edging.




The cowl is a perfect pattern for someone who crochets and is wanting to try out knitting. There is no easier knitting pattern out there. Just cast on the amount of stitches you want and then knit until you reach 30 inches.

The crochet edging is a simple shell pattern. The only stitches used are sc, dc, ch, and picot. Lace doesn't have to be complicated to look beautiful. Another great part of this lace is that you can make it as long as you like. The body of the lace is a 2 row pattern repeat that ends with a big finish to really make it stand out.

Notes: The cowl is worked with a knit garter stitch. the needles were US 7/ 4.5mm. I cast on 40 stitches using the twisted German cast on and I knit stitched til it was 30 inches long. I then wip stitched the two ends together. The edging is worked with crochet.

Super Chunky Twisty Neck Warmer

A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern


I have this yarn:


I think that maybe it is rug yarn. I used to have a lot of this yarn. I tried making it into a rug, and it looked awful.
I threw it away.
I know "Bad Julia, Bad!"
You do not throw yarn away, even when it has been made into something awful. You could find another purpose for it.

I have been seeing these knitted neck warmers all over Pintrest and Etsy, and then my friend made one. I had to have one too. I would much rather crochet than knit so I hurried up and made a pattern for myself using Tunisian crochet. I am pretty happy with the results.

Where Can I Get This Pattern?

I have made a PDF Available for this Tunisian Crochet Pattern. This is a great option if you want to print it off, and it will be ads free. You can Find it in My Ravelry Store for $3.00.
