Hi friends! I’m so excited to introduce you to my friend Vincent from Knot Bad Crochet! He has some of the cutest crochet pieces I’ve ever seen and he’s such a wonderful, warm fella – I know you’ll love him as much as I do. We had the chance to meet and crochet together while I was in Portland in July and we became fast friends, so I knew I needed to have him on the blog! Enjoy his cowl pattern & be sure to follow along with him on his blog too!
Hi everyone! I’m Vincent, and I’m the face behind Knot Bad! I run my own blog over at knotbadami.com where I offer free patterns, community led events, and a few charities! If it’s anything to do with crochet, my heart flutters for it. It is an extreme honor to be meeting all of you over here on Sewrella, I actually had the chance to meet Ashleigh in person, and she’s just as fun as she seems on the web! She is actually my main push for entering the blogging world! Today, I have a fun, easy, and quick pattern that is just perfect for October!
I present to you the Frankenstein Cowl! As we know, going out on Halloween can be a little chilly and this cowl keeps you warm along with giving you that Frankenstein aesthetic that I know we’re all dying to have. This pattern can be done in one sitting if you’re determined and makes for a great halloween costume for all ages! I plan on wearing it this year myself!
This pattern was made with Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick and Quick with a 10mm hook, so you can probably imagine how quick it goes! Keep your neck super toasty, it’s perfect for this weather change as everything is cooling down. Did I mention how great an ice breaker it is?
-Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in these colors:
- Taupe -Scissors
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
mr = magic ring
sc inc = increase (2 sc in next stitch)
dec = decrease (sc 2 together)
ch = chain
BLO = Back Loop Only
* = repeat
For adult size, crochet until it reaches 24”
For a child, recommended size is 20”
Begin by chaining 18
Rnd 1: Turn. Dc in 3rd chain from hook. Dc in each stitch across. Rnd 2: Ch 2, turn. Dc in first chain and Dc across.
Rnd 3-24: Ch 2, turn. Dc in first chain and Dc across.
When you are done, do not cut tail; now you can attach each end to one another by slip stitching it together!
Finish off and leave tail to weave in.
Rnd 1: 6 Sc into a magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: *Inc* around (12)
Rnd 3: Sc into BLO around (12)
Rnd 4-6: In both loops, sc around (12)
Rnd 7: *Dec* around
Finish off and leave tail for sewing (Make sure to stuff with your polyfill!)
Be sure to fold cowl, or it will be too tall! When folded, sew on the screws to the top of the cowl, going through both layers of the fold.
I hope you all enjoy this quick and easy pattern just in time for Halloween! If you end up making this, I would love to see!
