Tryst Fringe Cowl

Hello everyone! How is your weekend so far? Pray you are blessed and enjoying the sunshine today. Here in Tennessee it is cold but it's not snowing and the sun is out so it's a plus!

Today's posting is of a wonderful triangular fringe cowl scarf....don't know the exact term for it but here is my wonderful creation made by this awesome brain ha ha and my wonderful hands!
           
This is a CroKnit pattern and if you don't know what that means, CroKnit simply means crocheting and knitting in the same pattern. You will have to know the basic knit and purl as well as knitting in the round and picking up stitches. It's fairly simple, there are a lot of YouTube videos that can walk you through it.

For the crochet portion of the scarf you will need to know how to crochet the C2C stitch, and again, YouTube and other bloggers have great tutorials on it. Google it! Wisest words of the century there!

The pattern is below! If you get stuck, or need help, let me know! P.S. I was gracious enough to post pictures this time ha ha .... my husband was a sweetheart and got me an Ipad...what a doll! Happy wife means happy man!

Pattern:



Body - Crochet Portion:


Row 1: Ch 6, DC into the 4th ch from hook, (first ch 3 counts as first DC here and throughout), make 1 DC into the next two sts, 1 block made. (4 DC = 1 Block)
Row 2: Ch 6, DC in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 chains, turn, sl st into the previous ch 3 space, ch 3, make 3 DC into the ch 3 space, 2 blocks made. (8 DC = 2 Blocks)
Rows 3-12: Work an increasing C2C stitch for the next 10 rows. You will have a total of 48 DC or 12 Blocks at the end of Row 12.
Row 13: Ch 1, SC into each st across (this means to crochet into each SC and the top of the ch 3), do not turn, follow instructions below. (48 SC)




We will now work along the edge of the triangle making an edge to tie in the fringe in the end and to give a nice finished look at the bottom portion of the scarf.

Row 14: Ch 3, sl st into the space of the 1st and 2nd Block along the side of the triangle going down the left side front facing portion of the project, (ch3, sl st into the next space), repeat parenthesis 10x, ch 3, sl st into the same space as the last, (see picture 2), ch 3, sl st into the 1st and 2nd block after the corner of the triangle, (ch 3, sl st into the next space) 11 more times, sl st to the first SC made on Row 13 to join.

Cowl Neck - Knitting Portion:

01/25/16 - Edited the # of Rows for the neck, 37 total sts vs 46.

Round 15: At this time we will join both sides together to make the cowl portion of the scarf by sl stitching into the first SC of the other end, keeping the hook in place to avoid separation, turn the project inside out.  Push your skein/ ball of yarn through the other side of your project to be able to work comfortably from it since we will now be working in the round. Take out your crochet hook and replace it with your circular needle or first DPN and pick up the following amount of sts with your needle.


Circulars: Pick up 47 sts, place marker. (48 sts on circular.)
DPN’s: 1st needle, pick up 11 sts. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th needles, pick up 12 sts for a total of 48 sts. (48 sts on DPN’s)
 (P1, K4, P7), repeat parenthesis 4x, place marker.


Round 16 - 36: Slip Marker, (P1, K4, P7), repeat 3 more times.


Round 37: Slip Marker, (P1, K4, P7), repeat 3 more times. Bind off by knitting all the sts - this will give it an even clean edge, fasten off, and weave in all the ends. Fold over cuff of cowl to make a collar to finish the look, the knits will be a nice contrast to the purls, enjoy!





Optional:
Fringe: Cut 50 strands of 12” pieces for the fringe. Use 2 strands of for each ch 3 space along the bottom edge of the project, the very last two go at the bottom corner your work. Cut each set of fringe to 4 or 5” below the knot or to the desired length (shorter or longer, whatever you have room for!J).
