We are into our third week of the Heirloom Crochet Cowl! And as you can see, I’ve included a couple different pictures of my current and continuing progress.
This week we are doing the griddle stitch, which is an easier variation of a bobble stitch. After all the difficulty of last week’s cables, this week is bringing us back to a more simpler time with a stitch most of our grandmothers can relate to.
As a note on different stitches and different gauges within the same project (read: is your project super loose or tight in different areas?), remember that you can always switch hooks to bigger or smaller sizes to make it work. For example, I crochet tighter when I do single crochet than the griddle stitch. So in order to keep the same tension and gauge, I switch to one size smaller hook in that section. Some people don’t need to do this. We are each a bit different, and it makes sense to pay attention to your own quirks as it will save you time in the future!
Without further ado, and with no video this week (it’s that easy! YAY!), here it is:
Section 3: Griddle Stitch (click here to download a pdf version of this week’s section HeirloomCrochetCowl-Part3)

That’s it!! Fun, right?
