Loop Stitch: This stitch is written out in each round it’s used. The X under the loop is also counted as the loop stitch for the purpose of the round stitch count total. A photo tutorial of how to work the stitch can be found on the last page of this pattern. Video tutorials of how to work the stitch can be found on my website https://www.craftingfriendsdesigns.com/bloggingfun/new-loop-the-loop-cowl-crochet-pattern-and-video-tutorials
- The loops are tacked down by working stitches in 2 rounds together so they aren’t easily snagged. If you prefer to not tack them down, follow the instructions in bold as indicated
- Beginning (sc, ch 2) counts as a dc
- Photos showing stitch placement are on the last page of pattern and are referenced as P1, P2, P3 etc.
- When changing colors, do so in the last step of the last stitch of the row before the color change 5. To avoid weaving in so many ends, drop the unused color of yarn to the inside of the cowl or boot cuff to be picked up again when needed
