The Crochet Raspberry Cowl
This is the crochet version of my popular knit raspberry cowl. Just as simple to make, and just as squishy with the bobble texture!
Row 1: sc in 1st ch from hook and in every ch across
Row 2: ch 3, turn, *start dc in 1st sc, (pull through 2 lps, but don't pull through next 2 lps), start 4 more dc in same st, (you should have 6 lps on hook), yo, pull through all 6 lps on hook, sc in next st; rep from * to end to end of row. (Start and end with a 5 dc bobble)
Row 3 and 5: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across
Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc in 1st st, *make 5 dc bobble in next st, sc in next st; rep from * to end across to end of row. (Start and end with a sc st)
Rep rows 2-5 until out of yarn or desired size. Seam the two ends together, and weave in all ends.
Here is a bit of a picture tutorial to help with the bobbles if you don't understand the written instructions.
Ch 3, begin 1st dc. See how I pulled through the 1st two lps on the hook, and there are still two on the hook?
Make another 5 dc bobble in the next st, the a dc in the next and continue along the row. You will notice that the bobble rows are the wrong side of the fabric.
Ch 1, turn, dc in each st across. These sts look a little strange, so if it helps, count them to make sure you aren't adding any extra stitches.
Ch 1, ac in 1st sc. Make a 5 dc bobble in next st, then sc in next st. Continue in this manner across the row.
Continue with the four row repeat.
This stitch is a huge yarn eater, but it makes for a really squishy, snuggly scarf.
My finished cowl measures 11"x36".
