This is adorable, love the little roses. I want to crotchet something this fall but I made need to start with a headband and work my way up to the cowl.
Thanks for sharing this pattern.

Love your projects, made Julia last month. Will give Astellema try. It's getting to be cowl and scarf weather soon---I hope.

Thank you so much +Tracy Creel. Aselle would look lovely on you!

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you +Betty Lou, you are so sweet! It is very encouraging that you love the projects. I love it when they are enjoyed!

I started making this last night. It really is easy and fast! I have one question though, what are the dimensions, length and width? Mine doesn't seem quite long enough so I'm adding a few more rows, but I don't want to get it too long. Thanks for sharing such a lovely pattern! :)

Craftybegonia said...

Hi +Kathy Opper! Thank you for your sweet encouragement about Aselle. Aselle is 25" around, it is not meant to be an infinity cowl, just a short cowl that kind of hugs your neck and keeps the wind out in a pretty fashion. You can make it longer if you like and add more roses down the front.

McFrick said... Cowls..this is gorgeous..and i might have just the right amount of pink for it! ty

I am trying this cowl. Love the roses. Is the chain three counted as part of the five double crochets

Craftybegonia said...

Hi +Blessable, yes, the ch 3 is part of the stitches of the shell.

This is so pretty! I'm not crafty at all when it comes to anything sewing, crocheting, etc. I'm always in awe of those that can!

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you so much, +Angela Paris, you are so gracious! I wish you could crochet, it is so much fun!

I presume this is for an adult. Would it be possible to alter the pattern to use for a child?

It is such a pretty pattern and very easy to follow. Thanks for making it available.
Happy Christmas.

How do I go about making a smaller version of this lovely cowl for a child/

Craftybegonia said...

Hi +Christine Marie Wright! I think it owuld make a lovely Mommy and Daughter duo, yes. I would tell you how I would do it if I wanted to reduce it to a child's size. 1- Depending upon the girl's age, I would measure her head as if I was going to make a hat for her (the cowl has to go comfortably over her head) and add maybe 20 stitches more so that it would be comfortable around her neck. Then I would determine how wide it has to be to actually be to have about the width of a turtle neck collar (at the very least), make a paper pattern with your measurements, tape it at the ends to make a tube and use that tube to calculate the starting chain you will make to start the cowl and the width you will reach as you crochet the rows upward. Than, just make the roses smaller by using a smaller size of crochet hook. Hope this helps!

Hello - I am a beginner and would like to add a row of single crochet after the foundation chain. What would be my stich counts for the foundation chain and the single crochet row before beginning Row 1 in your instructions? Thanks!

Craftybegonia said...

Hi +Unknown, thank you for your interest in making Aselle. First of all, this is a hefty pattern for a beginner. It is relatively easy but you are wanting to make changes to it which are not calculated in the pattern and i cannot be sure what you are going to end up with. I am sorry, but I cannot tell you the stitch count if you add a row that is not called for in the pattern. Why would you want to do that? I do not see the reason for it. It is absolutely unnecessary.
