Mixology Mock Knit Big Stitch Cowl



Ready to keep using the skeins in any Mixology you purchased for the last two patterns in this series???  We started with the "Mixology Mock Knit Cuffs".  Next, we made the "Mixology Mock Knit Infinity Cowl".  Today, we will be making the "Mixology Big Stitch Cowl.  This entire project should work up in less than an hour! 
 The 6 skeins you purchased in Mixology; i. e. 4 solids, a print, and a swirl, in each colorway; will allow you to make each item in the Mixology Mock Knit series.  Mixology's color schemes blend effortlessly and perfectly!!  The "Retro" color scheme is my absolute favorite!  You can get all the patterns FREE here on my blog.  We will be posting a new pattern every 3 days until we release the eBook next week!  So check back often!

Read on in this post for the attached Mixology Mock Knit Infinity Cowl Pattern.  Pin it for later HERE, or add it to your Ravelry Favorites HERE.

Cowl - With 6 strands of Mixology and your hand 
Six Color: 
One Color:
For six color, begin with one strand of Color A, B, C, D, E, & F
Use your hand to CH 36 (Starting chain should be about 55" long OR should hang PAST waist when joined in a loop around the neck).  
Round 1: Join to back ridge of first CH to form a circle, be careful not to twist the chain, then SL ST around in the back ridge, join, and finish off.

Here is a link for a great technique to keep from twisting your chain:

For one color begin with 6 strands of the same color:
Use your hand to CH 36 (Starting chain should be about 55" long OR should hang at PAST waist when joined in a loop around the neck.)
Round 1: Join to back ridge of first CH to form a circle, be careful not to twist the chain, then SL ST sound in the back ridge, join, and finish off.

Use a metal yarn needle to weave ends in THROUGH strands of yarn.  This is crocheted loosely, if you don't actually weave you ends through the yarn they will their way out easily.  I also use my Button Tab to hide anything that showed from my join.
Button Tab - With one strand Mixology and N/10MM hook
(OR you can reuse the same tab for all the items in this line!)

Row 1: CH 13, SC in back ridge of 2nd CH from hook and in each back ridge across.  (Note: We are working into the back ridge in order to give ourselves a clean edge to work into later.) <12 ST>
Row 2: CH 1, turn, SC 12 <12 ST>
Begin edging:
CH 1, turn corner and SC 3 in between rows, turn corner, SC across, turn corner, SC 3 in-between rows, turn corner, SC across, Finish Off.  Join to 1st SC using invisible join:

There is an excellent tutorial on the invisible join available by Dearest Debi at:
http://dearestdebi.com/crochet-invisible-join

Attach one button to the end of the flap, turn the tab over and attach a button to the other end.  Now you have a reversible tab.  Loop your scarf however you desire and secure the button tab to hold it in place.  Mix and match for endless combinations!
