The Royal Shimmer Cowl :Free Crochet Pattern

I recently went for a trip to Dungeness and then took the steam train to Hythe. In Hythe, while randomly strolling through Hythe we came across Dotty Di's a charming little yarn shop which had a beautiful collection of wool of all kinds. The owner is really helpful and cheerful and I bought some yarn there just because. I had no project in mind while I bought a load of yarn but it was fun to just browse and pick whatever I fancied.

This yarn caught my fancy because if it was shimmering like a box of jewels. Katia Polaris(71) is a beautiful acrylic yarn. It just is a joy to crochet with. I highly recommend this yarn for any colourful project. I only bought a single ball but if I had bought more I think this would make a lovely shawl.

The pattern for this cowl is very simple but very effective in showing of the lovely yarn. This was my aim anyway.

Crochet Pattern:

Katia Polaris 100 gram (this pattern could be modified to make a longer scarf but would need more yarn than 100 grams)
4.5 mm Crochet Hook
Yarn needle and scissors

Chain 31

Row 1: hdc in second chain from hook, slip st in the next st. (hdc ,slip st) till end . Then ch 1. Turn
Row 2: (hdc, slip st) till end. Then ch 1. Turn.

Repeat Row 2 until cowl is desired length to wrap around snugly around the neck. For me this was 81 rows. Fasten off leaving a tail of 15-20 cm

Using the yarn needle join the two edges.

 Enjoy your new cowl!
