This beautiful crochet cowl pattern all started with the yarn! Have you ever picked out some yarn and then searched for the perfect pattern? I visited a local yarn shop, The Yarn Cloud, and found this beautiful and super-soft yarn from Sublime Yarns. My kids and I couldn't keep our hands off of it and I decided then that I wanted to make something that would keep this yarn close to my skin. That is how this lovely solid shell stitch cowl pattern was born!

I used Rose's method of the solid shell stitch and basically just worked it around and around without stopping. I wanted something close to my neck and face, so this one is small and meant to hug your neck and chin. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Helpful tips:

  • If you have only one ball of yarn, just do one row of hdc at the beginning and one row at the end.
  • Test the chain of 79 to make sure it fits around your head to wear. If it is too small, increase the chain count. Make sure it is multiples of 6 (+1).
