The pattern says rows 12-20 sc, sc 8 rows.
12-20 is 9 rows, do I crochet 8 or 9 rows?
Hello! I’ve reached out to the designer for advice and she or I will reply as soon as possible. Thanks! – Nicola, Editor
love this pattern
fall and winter
I think my sister would love a scarf made like this!
I crochet year round. I love to make things & donate them to animal shelters & rescues. Plus, it keeps me busy!
Autumn & Winter. Thanks for the free pattern.
I just learned to crochet this September, so I’d have to say fall and winter. Haha. But I love it, so I’m guessing it’s going to be a year round thing.
All year- whenever inspiration hits 🙂
The time of year does not matter. No afghans in the summer though:-)
I crocheted a lot last year, because I had a different job. With my longer commute now, I don’t crochet as often.
I crochet all year long but do the heavier afghans in the winter months. Not that we have a lot of winter in this part of Texas.
More before Christmas but all year long.
After the Christmas holidays.
Very lacy. Nice. November and December are big crochet months.
All year, just different projects. Yarn or thread.
I crochet all year long, it just depends on the season, what I work on.
I crochet throughout the year!
Year round. I do little projects in the summer and the larger projects get saved for winter. It isn’t fun to get heatstroke because of the project in your lap.
I crochet the same amount year round. Always have my hands busy.
I love to crochet year around, but do less anytime the weather is nice enough to garden.
I crochet constantly. In the evenings Hubby watches TV and I work on a project. But perhaps I do work a little faster just before Christmas.
Just started again in August and haven’t stopped yet. Feels like wasted time, but then again when I list off all my projects big and small, its a wow..
I crochet all year long!
I crochet year round. Keeps me sane. 🙂
year round but more in winter
I find myself crocheting the most in the Fall. I get ready for the winter weather ahead and still be able to do light projects.
usually in the cooler months when i can’t be outside as much
I crochet more at Christmas than any time of the year!
I go in fits & spurts, when the fancy strikes me or I have a specific project in mind.
I crochet all year but the cooler months are when I crochet heavier projects like large blankets. I also think it varies based on when babies are due each year because of how cold the winter was! LOL
I crochet most in the winter.
I try to crochet year-round, but because outside activities are more prevalent in my life in the warmer months, I do tend to crochet more in the winter.
I find myself crocheting more in spring and fall-the transition periods. This is lovely.
I crochet most in the winter.
In cooler weather so I can snuggle with the yarn. 🙂
This pattern is absolutely gorgeous! For me, it’s less time of year and more late at night after the kids are in bed.
year round! need to try to get ahead on Christmas for next year & then birthdays pop up almost every month along the way.
i love this pattern but am wondering about yarn substitutions? I am relatively new to crochet is there somewhere I could get this information. Great yarn but a little expensive for me. Thanks
Gorgeous! Thank you!
Can’t wait to try this! Have never done any lacy stitches so looking forward to trying it on this beautiful cowl. Thanks so much for sharing!
Absolutely beautiful. I’m planning on starting on this right away. Thanks for the pattern.
I’d like to save this to my tablet computer. Is there a PDF version?
PS–I clicked on the printing link and bookmarked that page but cannot open that page in the Kindle app.
Lovely! Hope I can do the intermediate to make a wonderful gift.
Thank you for sharing. Perfect!
This pattern was listed among those being offered to work without a chain. Guess someone made a mistake. So, I was surprised that it started with a huge chain but that’s ok because it is beautiful and I’ll started right on it.
thanks for the pattern –time to work on Christmas Gifts –love this design
Thank you! I’ve become disabled and crocheting is one of the things that are helping with my therapy. I love this – I will become a member as soon as I can.
I’m delighted by this pattern, I plan on making it right after I make an afghan for my bff. And before I make a knitted scarf for my daughter in law.
Thank you very much. I am always crocheting and looking for new ideas. I was delighted to see this one. I have been looking for one that had a lacing look.
And they were always knitted. So you made my day. Thanks again. I was just disappointed the picture didn’t print.
I right clicked on the picture and clicked print and the picture printed. Good luck
Thank you for your generosity
I love the Fan Trellis Cowell. I am going to give it a try. I have never done any lace type before but if I can read I should be able to do it. Thank you so much for the pattern. Jean
Thank you for the pattern. I just started a new job, but plan to subscribe as soon as I can. : )
