    1. Hi Ellie. This cowl is worked using the herringbone half double crochet stitch. Worked in the round this stitch creates a beautiful texture. If you are not familiar with this stitch click through to Moogly at the top of the post and follow her video tutorial to learn this stitch. I promise its super simple!

  8. I absolutely love this pattern, thank you. So much so I have put two on the hook today, one in a multi coloured super chunky and one in a plain apple green chunky. The stitch is so easy and looks fantastic, thanks for introducing me to it.

  9. From your instructions to join we first do the chain, then turn and do the first row and then join with a slip stitch back into the first hhdc. How do you join the chain section? Do you just do a few slip stitches up and down the join and then go into the 2nd row? I'm trying to figure out joining for the first time, so please excuse my ignorance. Sam
