Cowls, free crochet patterns

Chandler Cowl, a Free C2C Crochet Pattern

Free crochet pattern for a C2C cowl from Banana Moon Studio

Chandler Cowl is my newest free crochet pattern! It is a cowl made in the Corner to Corner, or C2C, technique! It uses two colors of Ancient Arts Yarns Revival Worsted!

Have you every used this technique to crochet a project? It’s often used to make blankets, but I wanted to try making something wearable with it. I love how this cowl turned out!

Ancient Arts Yarns Revival Worsted is a yarn made of 100% reclaimed fibers! It is environmentally-friendly and dyed by one of my very favorite indie dyers. You can see all the colors available on their website. I used A Midnight Clear and Embers and Ashes. You can also see all their worsted weight yarns available to order now, on their website here.

This pattern is available below, for FREE! Or you can purchase an inexpensive PDF on Ravelry, Etsy, or LoveCrafts (coming soon)!

I’d like to give credit to Crochet In the Sun, whose C2C Heart pattern I bought and used to learn the technique.

Look for some video tutorials from me in the future!

Chandler Cowl

By April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio

Finished Measurements 10 1/2″ tall x 30″ around.

Yarn Ancient Arts Yarns Revival Worsted (49% Wool, 34% Mohair, 11% Nylon, 4% Acrylic, 2% Silk; 198 yds [180 m]; 3.5 oz [100 g]; CYCA weight 3/light): A Midnight Clear, 1 skein; Embers and Ashes, 1 skein.

Crochet Hook I/9 [5.5 mm], or size needed to obtain gauge.

Notions Yarn needle

Gauge 5 tiles x 5 tiles = about 3 ¾” in C2C stitch pattern.

Notes

I recommend dividing each skein in half. Having two smaller skeins of each color worked well for me. When you aren’t working with them, try to leave the two matching skeins on opposite sides of the cowl so that you can use them for the solid stripes along both long sides. When I worked up the first short side, and again going across the second short side, I cut my yarn when I finished a stripe in that color instead of carrying them up the side. Your short sides will be seamed, but not in a way that will cover up any yarn carried up the side.

Odd rows are RS rows. Odd rows 1-15 begin at the right-hand short side of the diagram, then end on the bottom edge of the diagram. After Row 15, odd-numbered, RS rows begin at the top of the diagram and end at the bottom.

You will use the included diagram to determine color placement. To change colors, you begin at the end of the tile before the color change. Work the tile before the change up to the last yarn over (yo) of the last dc. Yo with the new color, then work the slip stitch with the new color and continue in pattern.

Until you turn the first corner, and begin decreasing, each row has as many tiles as its row number. Row 1 has one tile, row 2 has two tiles, row 3 has three tiles, row 10 has ten tiles, etc. In Rows 15-40, every row has 15 tiles. Each row after that decreases by one tile.

Each tile is made of a ch-3 and 3 dc. Each square on the included diagram, represents one tile.
