Ribbing plays a vital role in the Ombre Moss Stitch Cowl, adding a touch of knit-look finishing to elevate the project.
To achieve this, I decided to incorporate a crochet single crochet ribbed brim, which I’ll guide you through.
Although the example provided is a small sample and not the actual cowl from the pattern, the technique remains the same.
For the ribbing, I used a slightly smaller hook size (2.5mm) compared to the one used for the cowl’s body.
So let’s dive into this exciting addition to the Ombre Moss Stitch Cowl!
To join a new yarn for ribbing, insert your hook into the first stitch of a round, wrap the new yarn over the hook and pull it throught the remaining two loops on the hook.
Then, decide how wide your brim will be. For my Ombre Moss Stitch Cowl you will need 6 chains for a 5 stitch wide single crochet ribbed brim.
Make a single crochet in the second chain from the hook (pic. 1), and 5 single crochet stitches to the end (pic. 2)
Next, you have to slip stitch in the next two stitches on the final round of your Ombre Moss Stitch Cowl. On the pic. 3 and pic. 4 the needle points the right stitches.
When the two slip stitches has been created make a 1chain and rotate your project to start working the back up where the single crochet you need. This is the first row of your ribbing.
Then, skip the chain1 and two slip stitches just made (the needle points the correct stitch on pic. 6) and make single crochet at the back loop only of the next 4 stitches (pic. 7).
The last single crochet work through the both loops (pic. 8) and you have now two rows of your ribbing.
Next, turn your work and make a chain1.
Then make single crochet in the first stitch and back loop only single crochet in the next 4 stitches.
After that, slip stitch in the next two stitches on the final round of your Ombre Moss Stitch Cowl (pic. 10 and pic. 11) and chain 1.
Now, rotate your project and repeat Row 2 and Row 3 of the ribbing until you have worked all the way around.
When you make the last row of your cowl brim and you want to have a nice clean look you have to close up your ribbing. For this, turn your cowl inside out, insert your hook in the loop and slip stitch these two layers of the fabric together (5 slip stitches).
Fasten off yarn and weave in all ends.
I hope this helped you give your cowls a more finished knit-look.
