Since my youngest daughter is named Judi, naturally I just had to see what this project was all about. Be advised that clicking on the above link immediately opens an option for a .pdf download (my favorite option). The pattern itself is so easy and repetitive, and the designer describes the yarn used in her samples. She also suggests how to make the cowl with a larger hook and double yarn.

All you will need to be required to do is a simple single crochet stitch, and to count skipped stitches. You can be a beginner and pull this one off, and make yourself look super experienced in the process! I love those mindless, no-brainer projects I can work while I am watching television. It's a smart, clean look on this cowl neck scarf- i can make one in every color that matches the tops in my wardrobe!

I got a 404 error on this page http//www.allfreecrochet.com/Crocheted-Cowls/ == Judis-Building-Block-Cowl

I am trying to print the cowl pattern but I can 't seem to do it. What is wrong?

Where's the pattern? I saved it to My Patterns, and now when I click on "get the pattern here" I am taken to a crochet case pattern. ???

Sorry I could have made it more clear, there is no stitching it together because at the end of the first row you make a circle by joining with a SS.. BUT YOU JOIN IT ON THE UNDER SIDE OR BOTTOM..... (this makes the twist AND a circle) then Row 2 is worked on the bottom chain too .. then around and around and around until the width you want hope this is a little clearer gail

A mobius does not need any turning or stitching ends together the turn comes in the way it is crochet Read ROW 2 carefully (you work the crochet on the bottom of chain ) this makes it's own turn hope this helps gail

I was trying to print the image of the cowl w/no luck, but then tried to print it from this page and it worked! Just press control P and ask for just page 1. NOW... I don't see anywhere in the instructions as to how/when to turn the whole thing to form a "mobius" loop, which I haven't heard of before today. Anyone else find it? To "halfpint": The instructions say chain 80, just after it says "Pattern".

Click on the "read more" link then click on "click here to download the pattern for Judis Building Block Cowl", if that doesn't work, here is the direct link: http://www.crochetedjewels.com/wp-content/uploads/Judis-Building-Block-Cowl1.pdf I haven't worked this pattern, but I don't see a problem with it, I'm an intermediate crocheter (leaning toward beginner), the only finishing I see on the pattern is to weave in the ends.

Although the pattern for Judi's Building Block Cowl is promised, i.e., "Click here for crochet pattern," the link does not provide the pattern. Maybe this is just an oversight, but I would love to have the pattern...please?

I had the same problem. Hit the "read more" button to get to the next screen. Then there is a link in the middle section to get directly to the pattern. The only problem is that the picture does not come with the pattern... hope this helps

Where are the instructions on how many stitches to chain?

Finishing instructions are needed to assist the beginner.

As written: intermediate The color is pretty and it is an easy stitch, BUT, many beginners might not know what to do with the instructions. When the pattern doesn't tell the entire story, yarners can get frustrated and that can prevent them from completing projects. It would be nice if the finishing directions were included: something like, use any stitch to sew the pieces together end to end until all are connected into a strip. Then twist the strip so that the bottom of one piece is facing up and sew that to the other end piece. The twist creates the mobius loop.

It doesn't require sewing the pieces/ends together, it says in the instructions to slip stitch the two ends together, then repeat pattern until it's as large (thick) as you want it to be. I'm an intermediate crocheter, leaning toward beginner, and this makes sense to me, believe me I am terrible at reading patterns too. :) Wretha
