NEW Mystery Crochet Along Cowl Pattern

Mystery crochet along Kristin Omdahl

Join me for a new and exciting mystery crochet along cowl pattern. I am offering the project in 2 different yarns so you can choose whichever you prefer. Both are #2 sport weight yarns and you will need 440 yds for either cowl. I’m releasing the material list in the initial pattern download on December 1, 2022. You will have a month to order and receive your yarn to begin on time. Starting January 2, 2023 one section of the cowl pattern will be released along with a supplemental video tutorial. Each week thereafter, a new section of the cowl will be released. Here is the scheduled:

What if I want to use a different yarn for the Mystery Crochet Along (MCAL)?

You may substitute any yarn to make these cowls. You can choose any #2 sport weight yarn or use any yarn that gets the same gauge. You can also use a heavier or lighter yarn with an appropriately sized crochet hook but keep in mind you will be using a different amount of yarn if you change the gauge. Use this handy reference guide when determining how much yarn you need for any project in any weight yarn:

What if I want to make a scarf or wrap instead of making this cowl for the Mystery Crochet Along (MCAL)?

You can absolutely make a scarf instead of a cowl. It will just be a 53 in long scarf instead of a 53 in circumference cowl. If you would like a longer scarf, consider adding an additional color or additional balls of some of the same colors of yarn. I will be explaining the stitch multiples and row multiples in this pattern. You could also double or triple or quadruple the width and/or length to make a rectangular wrap shawl, a baby blanket or an afghan from this project. Again, use the yarn yardage estimate chart above when figuring out how much additional yarn you may need.

What if I want to make my scarf in one color instead of four colors for the Mystery Crochet Along (MCAL)?

You certainly can make this cowl or any of the above-mentioned projects in one color of yarn instead. Simply continue on in pattern instead of fastening off between colors. I will provide instructions in the pattern and in the supplemental video tutorials about how to change color or continue in one color of yarn.
