I used the same pattern as the "Flower Cowl" from my previous post , using stitch pattern from this site. Using solid color shows off the pattern well.
The pattern is easy to follow because of the photos demonstrating the technique. There is no instructions on how to join the two ends to make a cowl so I'm adding it on this post.
How To Join The Two Ends Together:
The photo shows the two ends or sides of the finished work. The beginning row, top part of the photo has incomplete flower motif while the ending row, bottom part of the photo has three complete flower motifs and one incomplete flower motif. I am a right handed crocheter so I turn the whole set up of the crochet work around so I can work from right to left. Note: Do not break the yarn when desired length is achieved but continue to join the two ends or sides together. In order to join seamlessly the ending row must be made up of completed flower motifs. See photo above.
Starting from the Ch-3 of the incomplete flower petal, where the hook is currently placed in the above photo, insert hook on the 2 loops of the incomplete petal of the other end of the crochet work. See photo below.
*Ch3, see photo below.
Slst on the ring. See photo below.
Ch3, 2dc over the same ring, working on other side, slst on the 4th chain of ch-7 loop, counting from flower of the opposite or other end of the work. See photo below.
Ch3, slst back on the ring of other end of work. See photo below
Ch3, 2dc over same ring, working on same side,
slst on the third chain, counting from ring or center of the flower.
See photo below.
Ch3, sls on the corner of the petal on the opposite end of the work. See photo below.
ch3, slip stitch on 2 loops of petal on the opposite end, see photo below
Repeat * * until both ends are connected. See the completed joining below.
Ch1, pull this stitch tight to close the work. Cut the yarn leaving a 6 to 7 inch tail to hide the end of yarn. See tips on hiding yarn tail
