This cowl is easy to make but you need to have little crochet practice. The flower pattern which is used to make this cowl demands little light hand while crocheting. You need to understand how to keep proper and uniform tension through out the row.

Ch 3, 1 dc each next st (7 sts), turn the work. Repeat this row 7 times, so total 9 rows of dc. Don’t cut the yarn, we will need it to fix band around cowl.

Assembling: (I highly recommend to watch video to understand this portion)

Place the cowl in such a way that the decorative edge overlaps the other end by almost 10 cm. Check the clear cowl diameter, it should be 40 cm, adjust the extension to get that.

Now fan fold the overlapped portion maintaining almost 2 rows in each fold. Carefully sew these overlaps with Tapestry needle maintaining the folds.
