Abrianna

Best Blog Tips

Since you have loved my cowls so much, I still feel inspired to design new ones. Abrianna is a very simple cowl to make, even an advanced beginner can make it. It works up quickly (can easily be finished in one sitting) and takes less than a full skein of yarn. The crocheted fabric is light and somewhat lacy, for those in-between days that are not tremendously cold and windy, yet because it is yarn, it provides warmth. Crochet it for yourself, for a friend, or for a charity project. It will make anyone feel pretty and feminine. Enjoy!

The looks of this pretty but easy cowl change as you turn it around on your neck, depending on which lacy block you choose to show at the time. It is composed of 3 different lace blocks and 3 solid blocks of stitches, and according to the spot of lace you choose to bring to the front, your cowl changes.

lovely free scarflet pattern by craftybegonia

This is one of those sweet and short pieces you can carry in your bag and you wrap around your neck when you feel a chilly wind. It is very easy, effective and it works up fast! This scarflet will work out really well in worsted weight yarn but you can make it in a bulkier weight if you prefer, but if you change the thickness of the yarn, please make a sample to check the gauge.
Skill- Relatively easy.

Materials-
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Burgundy (1 skein)

Row 18- 1 hdc in each sc across. Ch 2, turn. (16 sts)
Lace-
Row 1- Ch 5, skip 3 sts, 1 sc in nest st, rep across. (4 loops) Ch 3, turn.
Row 2- Skip first 2 ch of first loop, work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch of loop, skip the rest of the chains of loop, skip the first 2 ch of next loop, make 1 dc in each of next 2 ch, skip last ch of loop, ch 1,
skip the first 2 ch of next loop, make 1 dc in each of next 2 ch, skip last ch of loop, skip first 2 ch of next loop, work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch of loop, skip res of chs of loop, ch 2, 1 sc in last st of row. Ch 5, turn.
Row 3- Work 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in center ch-sp space of first shell, ch 1, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in center ch-1 space of next shell, ch 1, 1 sc in last stitch of row.

Row 5- 1 hdc in each st across.
Row 6- 1 hdc in each st across.
Row 7- 1 hdc in each st across.
Note- We could have used a button for this scarflet, but I thought it would be more fun and a whole lot more flirty if we used a flower instead.
Flower (Serves as Button)-
With Shocking Pink and H hook, ch 6 and slip stitch to join into a ring.
Rnd 1- Work 1 sc in each ch around. (6 sc)
Row 2 (Petal)- *Ch 6, work 1 sc in second ch from hook, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in next ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 sc in last ch, sl st in  foundation sc (the sc of center round of flower), sl st in next sc, rep from* around.
Sew Flower to correspond with buttonhole
Note- This Flower makes a tight fit, if you would like to substitute another flower, you may do so. I wanted a larger Flower so that the scarflet won't fly open with use.
