can someone please tell methe size of this cowl?i need the length and width that theseinstructions will produce in order to adjust my stitches or hook. thanks, joyce

Love the basket weave and the neck warmer concept, I am really having trouble understanding how to make the button hole rows...wish there was a tutorial

I used gray heather worsted weight yarn and black buttons and made this for my son-in-law in Wyoming--He loves it and it stays put in the wind.

do you turn after each row?

Why can't I print this pattern? My friend cannot either.

Does anyone know how long this piece is before you start the button holes?

Help, I would really like to make a neck warmer. However, I am having trouble following the directions. Could the directions be rewritten by numbering the rows 1,2,3,4, etc. Also, I am having following the directions for the button whole rows. Could you add punctuation and simpler more straight forward directions? I would try to provide an example, but I am not that experienced in pattern writing. Thank you, new2crochet

Hi, this is my pattern, so I'll answer the questions. DK is double knit yarn this is a UK weight yarn, similar to sport weight. the button hole question, there is a small mistake it should say buttonhole row a: ch 2 BPDC x3 (FPDCx4, BPDCx4) twice. FPDCx1 ch2 skip next 2 stitches fPDCx1 BPDCx4

Does anyone know how to finish buttonhole row on this pattern after last BPDCx4?There seems to be a few stitches left over. Sure would appreciate anyones help who has already made this. Thanks, Violet

I really like this pattern. I do have a couple of questions to ask you. I am using Loops Threads ImpeccableWorsted 192 yds175m, net wt. 3.5 oz., Poids net 100g. Is this comparable to the yarn you suggested? I started pattern and it seems to be working out fine, however, I'm a little confused in counting the rows, how long should it be before I start the buttonhole rows? Please advise and thanks!

I love this pattern. I feel so silly asking but what is DK yarn? Thanks

You cannot sell this pattern as it is not our pattern. It came to us from Joanne Wardle, but please feel free to make as many as you wish. Thanks! -The FaveCrafts Team

can you sell any of the craft items on the Facecraft website?
