I was holding onto this gorgeous skein of yarn from Yarn Baby LLC for ages, waiting for the perfect pattern to come to me - and for spring! Now it's ready, and I present the Splash of Spring Cowl!
The Splash of Spring Cowl is made with a yummy hank of worsted weight merino and bamboo blend yarn from Yarn Baby LLC, in the Spring Splash colorway. It's SO soft, and the bamboo gives it gorgeous drape. Variegated yarns like this usually require simpler stitch patterns, and I think I found the perfect one for this lovely one skein project!

- US - I, 5.5mm hook
- 230 yds Worsted weight yarn, Splash of Spring by Yarn Baby LLC, 60% Merino/40% Bamboo shown
- Gauge: 14 sts x 8 rows = 4" in pattern
- Finished Size: 11" tall x 25" around
- To make a larger cowl, add stitches in any multiple of 2.
- Video Tutorials: FSC - Foundation Single Crochet; CSDC - Chainless Starting Double Crochet; Seamless Join
- Note: This pattern is written with standard stitches, but for a cleaner look you can use the CSDC instead (tutorial link above). To replace the Ch 4 in Round 2, use a CSDC and ch 1, and to replace the Ch 3 in Round 3, use a CSDC. If you would prefer to avoid the FSC, you can ch 93, skip the first ch and sc in the remaining sts, and then join to work in the round.
Round 1: FSC 92, and being careful not to twist, join with a sl st in the first st to work in the round. (92 sts)
Round 2: Ch 4 (counts as dc and ch 1), skip the next st, *dc in he next st, ch 1, skip 1. Repeat from * to end, join with a sl st in the first st of the round. (92 sts including chs)
Round 3: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in the 1st st, skip the ch sp, *2 dc in the next st, skip the ch sp. Repeat from * to end, join with a sl st in the first st of the round. (92 sts)
Round 4 - 21: Repeat Rounds 2 - 3.
Round 22: Repeat Round 2.
Round 23: Ch1, sc in the 1st st, sc in the ch sp, *dc in the next st, dc in the ch sp. Repeat from * to end, break yarn and seamless join. (92 sts)
I was shocked that you are sharing this beautiful cowl...Thank you so much...
It is absolutely stunning...I'm sure its because of the great yarn.
BTW, this is one of the few items that really really match the name......Makes you smile when you see it...
😀 Thank you Ms. Pat!
SOOOOOOOOOO cute!!!! Nice job!!
Thank you BreeAnna!
It's beautiful and it really says SPRING! Thank you.
Thank you so much Patrice!
Could you tell me the yarn name? I didn't see it on the site...
I love this yarn! I am a little confused in the pattern when you say to join with a sl st in the first st of the round. Do you mean the top of the beg chain 3 or in the bottom of the chain 3? Thxs
Hi Danielle! Thank you! You should join in the top of the first st of the round - whether that's a FSC or the top of the first sc, if you don't like foundation stitches. 🙂
Oh thank you once again for another gorgeous pattern. I have shared it on FB, saved it to my favorites on Ravelry and qued it. Lovely...Lovely....
I adore that cowl. We have more winter weather coming today but the picture of the cowl makes me think spring and springy
😀 Thank you Penny!
FANTASTIC YARN AND PATTERN . I WILL TRY TO CROCHET IT . I AM GETTING BETTER AT IT I THINK
I have your pattern-how can I purchase the yarn?
The words Yarn Baby LLC in pink are a hot link to her site! 🙂 http://www.yarnbaby.biz/
I love this!! I'll be making one this weekend, it's perfect for the weather in NJ right now!
I would like to thank you for all the fabulous patterns you share with us, I love them all so much! This pattern is just perfect, thank you. XX
Thank you so much Jan! 😀
Love the colorway! Pinned.
On the very last round, 23, am I doing the the seamless join from the last dc in the ch sp into the first sc? Or do I skip over the two sc stitches and join into the first dc?
It doesn't really matter, as you don't need to maintain a stitch count for a next round! 🙂 Whichever you believe looks better in this instance with your yarn.
