5 Little Monsters: Bead Stitch Cowl

Bead Stitch Cowl

-Yarn used in this pattern provided by Darice, post contains affiliate links-


This cowl pattern actually started out as a hat that I was working on and then I decided to make a scarf to match. I wanted to make something that had a lot of texture to it. I used a combination of a couple different stitches to give me the texture I was looking for. One of the stitches I used was one that I had not tried before, the bead stitch. The bead stitch is similar to a puff or bobble stitch but it is worked sideways around a double crochet in the same row instead of into the row before. I used rows of bead stitch in between rows of half double crochet.


The other nice thing about cowls is that they are small enough that they can be made with a single skein of yarn so they are pretty quick and inexpensive to make. It is also really easy to adjust the size if you want to make it shorter or longer.
