Loopy Love – A Free Jacob’s Ladder Crochet Pattern You Will Adore

I think you know by now that I love the Jacob’s Ladder crochet pattern, as I use it quite a bit. The texture is so fun! In this cowl I have turned the ladder on its side and buttoned it closed for an added detail. As designed, this cowl is best worn with a tuck to make it lay flat in front so it fills in the neck of your coat and keeps you toasty warm. However, you can also make it longer so it can double, or shorter to be tighter around your neck.

Stitches and Abbreviations: click on highlighted sts for tutorials

sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
sp(s) – space(s)
st(s) – stitch(es)

Getting Started:
Do not weave in starting yarn tail until after the first part of the pattern (after the Row 2 repeats). The yarn end will help you know if you have an even or odd number of rows so you don’t have to count your rows. Even number rows end at the opposite side of the yarn tail.
Making the cowl longer or shorter is easy, simply work repeats of Row 2 to desired length, being sure to end on an even row. Remember, this will change your yarn amount used, so a longer cowl may require an addition skein of yarn.
A tutorial for the traditional Jacob’s ladder stitch can be found HERE. The looping begins 5 minutes into the video and it will help with the Looping section of this pattern. Just keep in mind that this pattern uses 2 strands of chains at a time.

Pattern:

Row 1: Ch 195, skip first 3 chs, [sc in next ch, ch 1, skip 1] 6 times, sc in each of the next 2 sts, *ch 7, skip 7, sc in next ch, ch 7, skip 7, [sc in next ch, ch 1, skip 1] 10 times, sc in each of next 2 sts; repeat from * 3 more times, ch 7, skip 7, sc in next chs ch 7, skip 7, [sc in next ch, ch 1, skip 1] 7 times, sc in next ch. – {69 sc}
Row 2: Turn, ch 2, [sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1] 6 times, sc in next ch-1 sp, sc in next sc, *ch 7, sc in next sc, ch 7, [sc in next sc, ch 1] 10 times, sc in each of next 2 sc; repeat from * 3 more times, ch 7, sc in next sc, ch 7, [sc in next sc, ch 1] 7 times, sc in turning ch sp.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 30″ tall, making sure to end with an even number of rows. Do not cut or end off yarn.

Seaming:

Fold piece in half so the last row and starting chain are together. Sl st both ends together, chaining 7 each time a ch-7 sp is reached so that you will end with an even number of ch-7 spaces around the cowl.
Fasten off.

Looping the Ladders:

Turn cowl so the seam is on the inside. Choose a point on one of the edge rounds of ch-7 to begin the first looping.
Pick up the first two ch-7 and give them a half twist in order to make a loop (this is the only twist in the round).
Pick up the next two ch-7 and pull them through the loop just made, creating a new loop.
*Pick up the next 2 ch-7 and pull them through the previous loop; repeat from * until no ch-7 remain.

Count over 10 ch-7 on the next round of ch-7 and loop in the same manner,
*count over 20 ch-7 on the next round of ch-7 and loop in the same manner,
count over 10 ch-7 on the next round of ch-7 and loop in the same manner;
repeat from * one more time.

Finishing:

Sew a button over the twist at the start of each looped round. Pull the last loop or each round up and loop them around the buttons.

Wet block cowl.

Wear or give and enjoy!
