free pattern release: the Snapdragon Stitch Cowl!

Hello everyone!  I know I’ve been quiet lately but I haven’t had much progress on my projects to share.  I finally finished writing this pattern up, though, and I hope you love it!
Snapdragon Stitch Cowl - Not Your Average Crochet


This pattern employs the snapdragon stitch as well as yarns the color of blooming snapdragons (although it would look great in any color)!  This cowl is worked in the round and is written in US terms.  There are two versions to choose from, a worsted weight version and a sock weight version.  Feel free to sell what you make with this pattern!  Also, you can find it on Ravelry here (I’d love to see your photos and progress)!


Finished size: Worsted version: 55″ circumference, 9.5″ tall; Sock weight version: 59″ circumference, 7.5″ tall

Materials: Worsted version: US I/9 (5.5mm) hook, 2 skeins of KnitPicks Brava Worsted in Paprika (or 438 yds of any worsted yarn); Sock weight version: US 3/D (3.25mm) hook, 1 hank of Miss Babs Keira in Blooming Pansies (or 560 yds of any sock weight yarn)

    That’s a very pretty stitch. Thank you for the free pattern.


  6. Beautiful cowls. They both look lovely on you. I like the multi-colored one with all those shades of pinks and corals.

    What a pretty stitch and cowl! I definitely will download! Wondering, what is a standing dc? I’ve never heard that term before. Thank you so much!


    • Oh no, you caught an error! There aren’t supposed to be any standing dc sts, just the no-chain starting dc (which can be replaced with 3 ch if you like). I need to go back and fix the PDF. I’m glad you caught it! A standing dc though is when you start w/ a slip stitch on your hook, and then holding your finger on the loop so it doesn’t twist, yarn over and insert hook into where you want the stitch to go, and then finish it like a regular dc.


  8. Good reeading
