Scaapi cowl!

Beautiful May! I was so lucky to recieve a box of possibilities from the lovely Michelle over at Scaapi. And there was some gorgeous South African yarn from Vinnis colours, called Bambi. A cotton-bamboo blend! So super soft! and the colors reminded me of a beautiful spring day. I was so inspired by the softness in this yarn,  and the Scaapi Cowl was created. Perfect for spring days and chilly summer evenings. With a few changes, you can easy make a gorgeous shawl or scarf. For the shawl, just rearrange the motifs as a triangle. I will post the drawing for the joining in the bottom. And the hand written diagram for the motifs.

The pattern is written in U.S. terms and I used a 4 mm hook.

This is the child size of the cowl. You will need 8 big motifs and 4 small (2 tall, 4 wide).  For the lager cowl, you will need 15 big motifs and 10 small  (3 tall, 5 wide).

A small tip is to finish round 1-6 on all your big motifs. Use the Pic 1 to see how to join the motifs as you go. You can also sew the motifs together in the picots, if you find the joining difficult.


Ch- chain

ss- slip stitch

sc- single crohet

hdc- half double crochet

3dcc- 3 double crochet cluster

Picot- ch 3 and make a ss in the ch


Big motif:

  1. Chain 4 and form to a ring with a ss, ch 1
  2. Sc 8 into the ring, fasten with a ss in your ch 1
  3. In any sc, fasten yarn with a ss and make your first 3dcc, *ch2, 3dcc in the next sc*. Continue ** round out. You will have 8 3dcc with a 2 ch space between. Cut and fasten yarn.
  4. In any ch space, fasten yarn with a ss and ch 2 (first hdc). In the same ch space, one more hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc *ch1, next ch space, 2hdc, ch2, 2hdc*. Continue ** round out and fasten with a ss in the top of the ch2 you started out with. 16 (2hdc) with a ch 1 space between.
  5. In any ch 1 space, fasten yarn with a ss and ch 4 (a hdc and a ch2), a hdc in he next ch space. *ch 2, hdc in the next ch 1 space*. Continue ** round out. 16 hdc with a ch 2 space between.

       Fasten with a ss in the 2 ch you started out with, ch 1

  1. Sc 3 in the first ch space, *sc 3 in the next ch space*. Continue ** round out. Fasten with a ss int the ch 1 you started out with.Cut and fasten yarn.
  2. In the second sc from your previos round, fasten yarn with a ss and ch2 (first hdc), *ch 3, skip 2 sc, hdc in next*. Continue ** round out. Fasten with a ss in the top of your 2ch you started out with. Ch, 1 Don’t cut the yarn
  3. In the next chain space, *sc 3, picot, sc3* Continue ** round out.

For the small motifs, Use round 1-3 from the big motif,  And round 4 is almost the same. Just skip the ch 1 before you start your 2 hdc in  the next ch space.
