The asymmetrical cowl has become one of the most popular styles this season, inspired by the famous huntress Katniss Everdeen from the very popular science fiction series, where the designers themselves were inspired from recent cat walk fashions. So what better than for me to design our very own asymmetrical cowl style for you guys.
This cowl uses a mixture of techniques but is only comprised of the single crochet stitch, double crochet stitch and the Solomon/half knot stitch. Previous knowledge of the Solomon stitch will be required for this pattern but you can watch our tutorial here on how to work this stitch: https://youtu.be/NSJRRRKzsig
- 423 yards approx. of Super Bulky/Super Chunky yarn in any colour. I chose Sirdar Faroe Super Chunky yarn in shade 0396
- 8.0mm Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
- Rope that measures 1/2 inch wide
Stitch count is not important for this pattern but do work to an even number of stitches.
When cutting the rope, measure 1 strand of rope around your shoulders, drop one end off one shoulder and bring in the rope a little. This will be the length needed for your rope neckline. Then cut another 8 strands the same length. When crocheting around the rope do not crowd your stitches, just crochet enough to cover the rope and keep the stitches loose enough so you can move the rope inside a little. When working your Solomon Knot pull up about a thumb's width, just under an inch.
