Inspiration #10 – MIDNIGHT Cowl (Sedge Stitch)

Apparently the snow last weekend wasn’t an anomaly, because it snowed again! While I do love winter, I have a bit of regret that autumn only lasted about a week in Edmonton. Still, the bright side of the snow is that it gave me another excuse to whip up a new scarf, and this time it’s my own design!

  • 2 skeins of Lion’s Pride Woolspun – a bulky weight (5) yarn (above: City Lights Mix)
  • Size N (10.00 mm) hook

  1. Chain one hundred and two stitches (102 stitches)
  2. The first two stitches in the beginning will count as a SC. Start in the third stitch from the hook and do a HDC and a DC. *Skip two stitches. Do a SC, HDC and DC into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until there are three more stitches in the row. Skip two stitches. Do a SC in the last stitch of the row. (100 stitches)
  3. Chain one and turn. This chain will count as a SC. In the second stitch from the hook, do a HDC and a DC. *Skip two stitches. Do a SC, HDC and DC into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until there are three more stitches in the row. Skip two stitches. Do a SC in the last stitch of the row. (100 stitches)
  4. Repeat row 3 ten more times.
  5. Using the ends of the yarn, use a whip stitch to connect the two ends to form a circle scarf.

I hope this pattern is simple enough for you guys to follow! Basically the cluster of SC, HDC and DC is always happening in the SC of the previous row. It works up very quickly due to the chunky yarn and big hook, so it’s great for gifting, especially as Christmas sneaks up on us.

If you have any problems with this pattern, please let me know and I’ll try to clarify. I’m still trying to work on making my thought process clear enough for other people to follow.

If you like the way this cowl looks but you don’t have the time to make it yourself, it’s also available for sale on my Etsy shop! I’m always willing to work with you to customize your purchase so that it’s exactly what you want.

I hope no matter where you are, you’re enjoying the weather and having fun crafting!
