Swift Swirl Cowl

A knitting Pattern

I have a new pattern to add to the Swift Swirl Series. The last 2 patterns, the Swift Swirl Hat and the Swift Chevron Hat were worked in the round. For this pattern it is worked flat so some of the rules change a little. It is still an easy to follow along pattern and I was able to finish this cowl up in a weekend.

 I was so excited to be working on this cowl. I always have a lot of fun with yarns that change colors, they make me keep going because I want to see how the next color will look. The yarn is Lion Brand: Amazing and the color is Cosmos. This is some yarn that my Granny had bought before she passed away. I don't know what she had planned for it, but it makes me feel close to her as I wear my new cowl.  

Another great thing about this yarn is that I only needed 1 skein to finish off this cowl. Towards the end I felt like I was playing yarn chicken but there was enough to make a seamless finish. So be warned you might want to pick up 2 just in case. 

I am pretty sure this is going to be a fall staple in my wardrobe this year.  I'm wearing it right now as I type.

Dragon Slayer Scarf


A Free Crochet Pattern

 This Pattern was originally posted on Crochetvolution which is no longer operational. I will be moving the patterns over to my blog so you can continue to use the free patterns

With my move to a colder climate draws nearer I have started a collection of scarves, and just warmer things in general. I wanted a scarf that was thick and cozy, but had a lacey look to it at the same time. This pattern is what resulted. The things that I love about this scarf are that you determine the length of the scarf in the first row, and that it is worked horizontally not vertically. The other thing that I like is that it is only three rows, so it is really easy to work up. 

One size
Model size is 6 in by 60 in.


Lion Brand:  Homespun yarn 1 skein
Bulky 5

The white scarf was made with Lion Brand: Wool- Ease Thick and Quick Super bulky 6 (2 skeins)

Hook: K/ 10.5 (6.5mm)

Not really necessary for this pattern.

            To complete the scarf you will make rows 1- 3, then you will turn the scarf over and repeat rows 2 and 3.
Special stitches:
Picot: Ch 4, sl st in st just made.

Row 1: Ch 9, join with sl st in 1st ch to make a loop, ch 3, make 8 dc in loop, {ch 9, sl st into last dc made, ch 2, sl st in loop with last dc (the first loop), turn so that string ends up in front of work, 9 dc in new loop} continue repeating {to} till you have your desired length and your end loops are facing opposite directions.(it should lay flat without any wave, like in the picture).

Row 2: Ch 5(counts as first dc and ch 2), turn, (dc in next dc, ch 2) five times, dc in next dc, sc in ch loop,{(dc in next dc, ch 2) 6 times, dc om next dc, sc in ch loop}, repeat {to}  till the end of the row.

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in sc,{ (sc in next dc, picot, sc in next ch space) 6 times, sc in next dc, and sc in next sc}, repeat {to} till end of the row. Finish Off.

Turn scarf over and repeat rows 2 and 3 on the other side of the loops.

Finish off and weave in all ends.
