Special Stitches

Twisted Fringe Single Crochet (tfsc): Pull loop so that it’s 10” long, twist loop by spinning hook 30 times, fold loop in half and twist it the opposite direction from the last twist, insert hook in designated stitch, yo, pull up a loop (2 loops on hook), yo, pull through both loops.

Pattern Notes

  • Read through all instructions before beginning.
  • The stitch count is at the end of each rnd/row after the period, usually only if the count has changed from the previous rnd/row. {count here}
  • Chs and sl sts are not included in stitch counts unless specified.
  • Fringe may not lay straight down/flat when first made. Do not worry, blocking it at the end will fix this.

What if I want a crochet scarf, instead of a cowl?

Easy, make the cowl section, then don’t seam it. You can add the twisted tassels to the two ends by making the 2 rounds of the border as 2 rows on the ends with no problem. If you would like, you can add a few rows of single crochet or half double crochet stitches between the first and last row.

It’s more like an infinity scarf than a cowl, can I make it smaller?

If you use just one skein of yarn for the cowl section and stop when you have just enough yarn left to seam the ends together, your cowl will have a smaller circumference – half in fact.
