Scallop-Edged Button Cowl Crochet Pattern

I am very excited to share my first ever crochet pattern! My sister bought me some great handspun Merino wool called Wheat Fields from as a gift and I couldn't find the perfect crochet pattern that would show it off best. Feeling rather frustrated, I pulled out a crochet stitch book, and started playing around. This is what I turned up with after a few different failed combo's.

Scallop Edged Button Cowl Pattern


Stitches Used:
CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
TC – Treble Crochet

Materials Needed:
125 Yards of Bulky Yarn, Approximately 4 ounces
(I used Merino Handspun by Hampton Artistic Yarns)
Size N 9.0mm Crochet Hook
Tapestry Needle for Weaving Yarn Ends
1 Large Button

CH 18
Row 1: SC in second chain from hook, *SC in each CH to end*, CH 4, turn
Row 2: TC in back loop only of each SC across, CH 1, turn
Row 3: SC in back loop only of each TC across, CH 4, turn
Row 4 - 43: Continue to alternate Row 2 and Row 3 until piece reaches desired length (or you run out of yarn!)
Weave in yarn ends, making sure to double back at last once
Attach button to the cowl in desired place, wrap it around your neck and enjoy!
