Pattern of the Week: Cinnamon Cowl
If you’re a fan of texture in your crochet (and let’s be honest—who doesn’t love some puffy stitches?), then you’re going to love Interweave Crochet Winter 2019! This issue is all puff stitches, bobbles, and popcorn stitches, and it will even teach you the difference between them! My favorite puff stitch project from the issue is Alla Koval’s Cinnamon Cowl, and our readers clearly agree. At the time of writing, the cowl was the most-made, most-queued project from the issue on Ravelry!
This lovely cowl crochet pattern is worked in continuous rounds, with staggered fan-shaped motifs of double crochets and puff stitches, combined with stitch decreases, creating a lovely textural lace pattern. You’ll have the stitch pattern memorized after a round or two, and soon you’ll just be glancing at the chart to find your place.
As a relatively new crocheter, this project ticks all of my boxes: it’s a great opportunity to practice a stitch I’m less familiar with, it uses a bulky yarn and a large hook for quick gratification, and it’s something I will love to wear for many winter seasons to come.
If you need one more reason to get started, consider the yarn. Red Heart Yarns Soft Essentials is an unbelievably soft, lustrous acrylic yarn that has the added bonus of making this elegant project super affordable. Just choose three balls of your favorite color, or try creating stripes, like some crafters did in their versions on Ravelry!
I hope to see many more creative versions of the Cinnamon Cowl as crocheters work their way through this gorgeous issue of Interweave Crochet. If you make one, be sure to share it on Instagram and tag us @interweavecraft so we can see your interpretation!
