Celtic Winters Cowl

Day five of the Seven Days of Scarfie is here and today I have another cowl pattern for you. This cowl is seriously like wearing a pillow on your neck...all I want to do is squish it against my face all day!  

Every once in a while, I get the urge to learn a new stitch!  This was one of those projects!  To get started with the celtic weave stitch I watched (and highly recommend that you do to!) the tutorial video from Pattern Paradise.  

**Update** I now have a pattern specific and left handed friendly video tutorial available here :)

The celtic weave stitch is so beautiful I can hardly stand it, and once you get started its actually a pretty simple repeat!  And my favorite part about it with this project is that it really shows off my favorite qualities of the Scarfie yarn.  The gradient of colors shows off the texture of the stitches, and the stitches themselves are as light and fluffy as clouds!

Supplies

Abbreviations:

  • Ch: chain
  • sl st: slip stitch
  • HDC: half-double crochet
  • FPTr: Front post treble crochet

Finished Size:

Length = approx. 11"

Width = approx. 14.5"

Gauge:

10 sts x 9 rows = 4x4" square in SC

Pattern Notes

  • Chain stitches do not count as a stitch
  • The end of each round is attached to the first stitch of that round with a slip stitch
  • The tension in this project is very loose and it makes a perfectly squishy finished project :)

Ch 72, join to first ch st with a sl st.  Make sure there are no twists in the chain.

Rounds 1-2: Ch 1 , HDC around (72).

Round 3 (first round of celtic weave stitch): Ch 3,  *skip 2 sts, FPTr in next 2, working OVER your previous two stitches- FPTr in the two skipped stitches.  Repeat from * around.  This will create a round of crossed stitches (18 sets total).

Round 4: Ch 3, skip 4 stitches, FPTr in next 2 sts, working BEHIND the posts of your previous two stitches- FPTr in the 3rd and 4th stitch you skipped at the beginning of the round, *skip 2, FPTr in next 2 sts, working BEHIND the posts of your previous two stitches FPTr in the two skipped stitches.  Repeat from * around.

Round 5: Ch 3, skip 4 stitches, FPTr in next 2 sts, working OVER the posts of your previous two stitches- FPTr in the 3rd and 4th stitch you skipped at the beginning of the round, *skip 2, FPTr in next 2 sts, working OVER the posts of your previous two stitches FPTr in the two skipped stitches.  Repeat from * around.

Round 6-14: Repeat Row 4 on even rows and Row 5 on odd rows.

Rounds 15-16: Ch 1, HDC around (72).  At the end of Round 16, tie off and weave in ends.

I hope you enjoyed this cowl!  I loved learning a new stitch to make it! Don't forget to stop back this weekend for the last two Scarfie patterns :)
