Rugged Slopes Cowl Crochet Pattern

Jo’s Crafty Hook Designs is bringing you another free crochet pattern, the Rugged Slopes Cowl.  The Rugged Slopes Cowl Crochet Pattern has a matching hat, the Rugged Slopes Messy Bun & Beanie which you can find here on my website.  Just like the Rugged Slopes Beanie crochet pattern shown on my website the size offered below is size Small Adult.

This page contains affiliate links.  You can make a purchase using these links that I provide where I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you.)  Purchases you make will help keep my website, Etsy Shop, and my Ravelry Store going and provide quality designs just for you!

The Rugged Slopes Cowl also uses the Sedge Stitch, which is a new stitch I learned not that long ago.  I love learning new stitches and I hope you do too!  I currently learned how to do the Celtic Weave, the Crunch Stitch, the N Stitch and more.  This year has opened so many new things that I never tried before.  You can read more about some of the new things I have tried here on my website.

If you are like me and have Scoliosis, Depression, Anxiety this is the perfect crochet pattern to take your mind off of your troubles.  Crocheting always seems to calm my worries and gives me a sense of hope in creating something for someone to love!

If you are wanting to crochet a larger size you can find the Rugged Cowl Crochet Pattern at my Ravelry Store here or at my Etsy Shop here.  I hope you enjoy the Sedge Stitch as much as I have, so let’s get started!

Fairland Sweater Free Crochet Pattern

The Fairland Sweater Free Crochet Pattern was inspired by one of my crochet pattern testers, Laura.  We both fell in love with the Herringbone Half Double Crochet, which is used in this crochet pattern.  Laura told me the design I was using for the Rain Drops Mittens would look awesome in a sweater.  Therefore the Fairland Sweater was born.

The great thing I found in designing this sweater was the feedback I received from my pattern testers.  It led me to look at the design from their point of views.  I always encourage my crochet pattern testers to be completely honest with me whether the comments are good or bad.  I ask them:  “How am I going to grow as a Crochet Designer if no one gives me feedback; asks questions, or comments on a particular part of the design?”  Below you will hear from another one of my testers, so be sure to look for it.

So let’s get started on crocheting the Fairland Sweater!

Another one of my crochet pattern tester was interested in sharing her viewpoint about the Fairland Sweater’s sleeves.  Below is what she has to say about altering sleeves to YOUR fit:

The construction of this sweater offers a unique opportunity to easily alter the sleeves for a custom fit. Due to the drop shoulders the sleeve opening will fall on a different place on your arm depending on how you choose to have your sweater fit (form fitting, or loose). I prefer to have my sweaters more form fitting. I made the medium sweater and the sleeve openings felt a little tight for me because they fell very close to my shoulder. All I had to do was go up one size on the sleeve portion and then they fit perfectly!  The transverse is also true. If you like a very loose fit to your sweater you may want to go down a size on your sleeves.
