Namari Mosaic Cowl is a textured two-color crochet cowl worked in the round using fingering weight yarn. It is a unique design that uses only one color per row in an easy to master mosaic crochet pattern and incorporates neat rib edges at the top and bottom.

Mosaic crochet have held a special place in my heart since I first designed Mosaic Cropped Sweater. Mosaic Crochet colorwork can be used to create a large range of designs from traditional to modern. The Namari Mosaic Cowl makes a great addition to the Namari Mosaic Shawl.

Namari Mosaic Cowl is a great project for everyone wanting to try mosaic crochet colorwork for the first time, as well as for crocheters who know it really well.

Materials & Tools:

  1. Yarn Malabrigo Sock Yarn 100g = 400m, 100% Merino Wool, in 2 colors:

Yarn A: Aquas – 312m,

Yarn B: Natural – 156m.

  • Hook size 3.5mm. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge,
  • Tapestry needle (to weave and hide yarn ends),
  • Scissors,
  • Stitch marker.

Level:

Intermediate – mosaic crochet.

Sizes:

one size, adjustable: approx. 57 cm/22.5” circumference and 42 cm/16.5” high.

Gauge after blocking:

21 sts and 20 rows = 10 cm x 10 cm using sc.

If necessary, adjust hook size to obtain the correct gauge.

Before you measure, please take the time to block your swatch in the same manner that you will block your cowl.

General Notes:

  • The cowl, after the ribbing, is worked in rounds.
  • Pattern for mosaic body is multiple of 10 stitches. To increase the circumference of the cowl, increase the number of rows in ribbing.  To decrease the circumference of the cowl, decrease the number of rows in ribbing.
  • To increase the height of the cowl, increase the repeats of rows 36 – 37. To decrease the height of the cowl, decrease the repeats of rows 36 – 37.
  • STITCHES: When in the instructions you have a stitch followed by a number, eg sc14, this means you have to work 1sc stitch into each of the next 14 sts. When in the instructions you have a number followed by a stitch, eg 2sc, this this means you have to work 2 sc stitches into the next (same) stitch.
  • Instructions in square brackets […] are worked as many times as indicated.

Mosaic Pattern Notes:

  • You can either follow the chart or written instructions.
  • Color is changed after every one round.
  • You can avoid weaving in all those ends by not cutting the yarn when you finish a round. Simply carry the other color along the inside and pick it back up with your hook when you need to use it again. 

How to read the Mosaic Chart:

  • Chart is read from bottom to top and each row of squares represents 1 round.
  • All rounds are read from right to left.
  • Each square of the chart represents 1 stitch or 1 skipped stitch.
  • Whenever you see a square of color dedicated to that round, work single crochet.
  • Whenever you see a square of different color in that round, skip that stitch (make chain). To prevent puckering,  make the same number of chain as the number of skipped sts plus ch1. For example, for 1 skipped st – make ch2, for 2 skipped sts – make ch3, for 3 skipped sts – make ch4, etc.
  • Pay special attention to number of skipped stitches.
  • BLmosaicdc will be worked in these skipped sts from two rounds below. Remember, BLmosaicdc are always worked in front of chains of previous round.

Stitches & Abbreviations (US terms):

ch(s) – chain(s) stitch

st(s) – stitch(es)

sc(s) – single crochet

dc(s) – double crochet

BLsc – back loop only single crochet

BLdc – back loop only double crochet

slst – slip stitch

yo – yarn over

BLmosaicdc (back loop only mosaic double crochet) – work regular BLdc in unworked/skipped st of the same color two rounds below in front of chain space (in front of work). These chains will stay behind BLmosaicdc and will stay unworked.

M – marker

PM – place marker

BOR – beginning of the row/round

sp – space

sk – skip

beg – beginning

prev – previous
