Looking for an easy one skein cowl crochet pattern? The Glas Tide Cowl is an easy beginner pattern featuring a simple repeating stitch that works up quickly. Grab it on the go for those early fall nights, or hook one up as a last minute gift! Read on to find out more about the Glas Tide Cowl and how to make yours.
Glas Tide Cowl inspiration
The Glas Tide cowl is a quick make that sort of fell off my hook. As usual I let the yarn choose what it is going to be and while I thought this was going to be a wrap once I felt this yarn and worked with it a little, I knew it would make a great one skein cowl.
I chose the Iris stitch for this design because I love quick easy repeating stitch patterns, but also because I wanted something that would be open and pretty enough to show off the yarn but not take over the colour changes.
The name of this one skein cowl is a bit of a collaboration. I find naming designs so difficult and I wanted this one to be simple. Throwing ideas around with a few friends, Myles suggested that I just call it blue sea. I went with Glas as this is the Welsh word for Blue. I also had a flick through my friend Thesaurus and spotted Tide as a synonym of sea probably and went with it.
Glas Tide one skein cowl yarn love
To create my Glas Tide Cowl I used one skein of Chroma Twist Worsted in Cousteau. This is a Aran/Worsted or 4 weight yarn by We Crochet/Knit Picks. 180m/198yds 70% superwash wool/30% nylon blend, roving style yarn. It has a gradient colour effect which I love and is a mix of subtle blues. Soft to touch, and hasn’t piled – so far, this yarn is one I would definitely work with again if it was a little easier to get a hold of again. Priced at $11.99 per 100g ball, I think this a reasonable price for a wool blend yarn, however, the cost of shipping + duty from the US makes this expensive.
