Learn to make the Arches Cowl with designer Mary Beth Temple. The crocheted cowl is a true moebius, started by putting a 180 degree twist in the first round of single crochet. It’s the perfect size to wear long and loose, or to twist a second time to wear it close about your neck.
Choose a soft yarn for comfort. The stitch pattern shows off yarns with a long color repeat nicely but any sport
weight yarn will do. If you want to make it wider simply buy more yarn and keep repeating the two-round stitch pattern
– it’s that simple!
Beginner and up
In pattern stitch: 24 stitches and 10 rows = 4 inches
Swatch yarn to ensure gauge
