Berry Smash Cowl – Free Crochet Pattern

It’s pattern day!

Today I’m launching the free version of my latest design – the Berry Smash Cowl!

I’ve been talking about this for the last few weeks, you can see some more pics here: https://missneriss.com/2020/01/18/winter-cowl-reveal/

I asked on Instagram for your suggestions, and Berry was a recurring theme, and I loved the idea of Berry Smash, so here it is!

Winter Cowl, Scheepjes Whirl Fine Art

GET THE YARN

Scheepjes has all of their stockists here.

Notes

This pattern is worked in rounds, joining at the end of each round.
Tension is important due to using the entire cake with little leftover. Finish the body of the cowl on a row 7 and begin working the rib.
Repeats are described as (dtr, ch1, tr). When smaller sets of repeats are needed inside your initial repeat, it will be described as (dc in dtr, ch1 [dtr, ch1, tr] in dc, ch1).
