Here we are again busting through some more of my stash this week. It has taken me about two weeks to make a crochet cowl. It is made in sedge stitch and finished with a random selection of buttons and broken necklace collections.
It is made in one continuous piece and twisted twice on wearing. The yarn is Katia Tupa which is 50& Merino and 50% silk, perfect for neckwear. I had 2 skeins left over from my crochet tunic I made last year.
Sedge stitch is worked over three stitches. You do one double crochet, one half treble and one treble all in the same stitch then repeat after skipping two stitches. You can see a picture tutorial here.
The last teeny bit made a little brooch to go with it.
Now, if you are wondering where to find the pattern I am afraid I made it up as I went along. I chained 198 (a multiple of three) and just did the sedge stitch until the wool nearly ran out. Then made a chain border to add the buttons and beads. The flower is the first two petal rounds of my flower tutorial on the right hand sidebar.
Used 2 skeins of wool
66 odd white buttons
66 odd beads
1 brooch pin
1 flower centre button
Bought nothing, gained a gift. I'm entering my second month without buying craft stuff. This one is going in my present box.
Thanks for dropping by. Jo xx
