Noema Cowl

designed by Kim Guzman © Feb. 2015

Please read my Terms of Use

Technique: Regular Crochet

Finished size

28″ x 15″ at widest points

Materials

  • Louisa Harding’s Noema (75% cotton/20% acrylic/5 polyamide) 131 yds per 50g ball: 2 balls necessary (shown in #6) or approximately 262 yds of a comparable sport to DK weight yarn
  • Suggested hook: 6.5mm (K-10 1/2)
  • Yarn needle (for weaving ends)

Gauge

5 ch-2 sps=4″; 16 rows=4″

Skill Level

Easy, perhaps not a first time project for a beginner, but with only single crochet and chains used throughout, it is definitely easy.

Notes

Cowl is worked top down, starting at the top of the head. The curved portion is at the top of the head.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
