Crochet à la Brioche Cowl Crochet Pattern

 

Cowl01

 

Every this-time-of-a-year since I released knitted Meringue Cowl pattern,  I receive so many requests for a crochet version. Well, here are several techniques to emulate Brioche knitting, like single crochet worked in back loops for example. But my most favorite method is working in third loop of half double crochet.

So, I wrote Crochet à la Brioche Scarf pattern explaining 3rd loop hdc stitch and “tested” it a pretty simple and such fast to crochet scarf project. Recently, I received several requests for cowl option. Thank you so much for your interest, it’s my absolute pleasure to design for you!! So, let me introduce…
