Chunky Buttoned Cowl by the messy mama!

This buttoned cowl pattern uses 100g of chunky yarn and a 5mm hook. I used King Cole Glitz Chunky for this project. The pattern is written using US terms. It roughly follows an 8-row repeat, with adjustments to allow for buttonholes where needed.

With my tension, I was able to create the whole piece in just one ball of yarn but it is a snug fit around my (skinny) neck! I am writing up a slightly slimmer but slightly longer version at the moment 🙂

2) (rs) ch1, sc in first 2 st, ch2, sk 2 st, sc in each remaining st, turn (23sc, 2ch)buttonhole row
3) (ws) ch1, sl st along, turn (25sl st)
4) (rs) ch3 (counts as first dc), dc into both loops of the slip stitches of row 3 along, turn (25dc)

9) (ws) ch2 (counts as first hdc), hdc in each st along (make sure you skip the joining loop at the top of each popcorn stitch, otherwise you’ll add 5 extra stitches to the row), turn (25hdc)
10) (rs) ch2 (counts as first hdc), hdc in each st along, turn (25hdc)
11) (ws) ch1, sl st along, turn (25sl st)

50) (rs) ch2 (counts as first hdc), hdc in each st along, turn (25hdc)
51) (ws) ch1, sc in each st along. Fasten off. (25sc)
Sew on three buttons, one to each corner and one in the middle, between the two corner buttons (approximately on row 50). The centre button should align with the double crochets on row 8, using the space between the second dc and the first popcorn as the buttonhole. Weave in all ends.

You can see the pattern repeat a little more clearly here.

 

Purple Heather – this used the shorter (21st) foundation row, and as the yarn was physically thicker I went up a hook size and used a 5.5mm instead of a 5mm.

This version starts with a foundation sc row of 21 instead of 25. The only real difference is on the popcorn rows, where there are 3dc in between popcorn stitches instead of 4dc, and at the end where you can add more rows before running out of yarn from a single 100g ball.
