Nordland Morning Mist Cowl Pattern

Jesus replied, "Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again.  But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again.  It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life."
John 4:13-14
This cowl's inspiration came from the colour of the glacier water I seen while in Norway.  We were in an area called Nordland, where the river was the most gorgeous colour of light blue/green, which we were told was due to the high amount of minerals from the glaciers that melted into the river.  When we were there the mornings were a bit misty and cool, so this cowl would have been just the thing to wrap around my neck.  It's easy and quick to stitch, making it a perfect thing for a last-minute gift too!! 

2 balls Bernat Roving (80% Acrylic/20% Wool; 100g/3.5 oz.; 120yds/109m) - Low Tide

M (9mm)

Yarn needle
Measuring tape

ch - Chain
dc - Double crochet
sc - Single crochet
st - Stitch


Ch 129 (or until the chain length is 45" long with the total number being a multiple of three).

Working into the back loop.
Row 1: Working into back loops of chain, 1 sc in each stitch to end.

Join the two ends together with a slip stitch.
Row 2: Slip stitch into first stitch at other end of chain to join into a ring, being careful not to twist the chain.  Ch 3, 2 dc into same stitch as ch 3, *sk 2 sts, 3 dc into next st, repeat from* to end.  Slip stitch into top of ch 3 from beginning of round.

Slip stitch to the first space.

ch 3 and 2 dc to make the first cluster.
Row 3: Slip stitch across to first space, ch 3, 2 dc into space, 3 dc into each space to end.  Join round with a slip stitch into top of ch 3, as in round 2.
Repeat row 3 until your cowl is as wide as you'd like or until you run out of yarn.  Mine measures 6 1/2" wide.  Fasten off and weave in ends.  Wrap around your neck and enjoy!!
