Since opening Simply Crochet in 2016, I have been planning to get into pattern writing but time did not permit. I designed a few patterns which I offered for free on my website (https://simplycrochettt.com/patterns) but I never got into it seriously. I also felt there was more that I needed to learn.
Fast forward to 2020. I decided it was time to get serious about pattern writing so I completed Pam Grice’s pattern writing course https://crochetpreneur.thinkific.com/ ( which I highly recommend). It took me through the steps from the design concept, through working and writing the pattern as well as the steps required for a mini pattern launch. The toughest part of the course would have to be the multiples but Pam’s explanation was excellent so I can definitely handle that now.
The Premier Cowl pattern is designed as an ideal crochet project for a beginner that wants to experiment with new stitches. It was also designed with a more versatile finished product in mind. The buttons used on the finished project therefore allow for the cowl to be worn in a number of ways based on the amount of warmth and cover that is needed.
The pattern multiple allows it to be worked to a length that allows for a snug fit or one that is as long as a scarf . Waffle stitch is used which is a combination of double crochet and front post double crochet, worked in alternate rows. ( video demonstration https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRnJHytHN_w).
If you are a crocheter who is now starting to experiment with new projects this would be ideal for you.
