Doppelgänger cowl – First look! (Free pattern)

Is anyone else hooked to Tunisian crochet? It has so much to offer and I am thrilled by the possibilities!

As a designer, I usually have a detailed design and execution plan in mind before I start working on a new pattern. But, with this one, I started with just an idea. I wanted to use two colors and a couple of stitches that would show off both the stitches and the colors.

Please leave me a comment if you like this pattern. You can add this pattern to your Ravelry queue.  If you would like a printable version of this pattern (or just to support me), you can purchase a print-friendly ad-free PDF from my Ravelry and Etsy shops. A free version of the pattern is available on my friend Elisabeth’s blog!

Most of the rows in this pattern are made using the Tunisian Simple Stitch but when you make the Forward Pass and the Reverse Pass in different colors, the visual effect is completely different.

I added a couple of rows of the Tunisian Knit Stitch and the Tunisian X Stitch. I think that the Tunisian X Stitch looks best with two colors and you can see that the X Stitch rows stand out in this cowl.

And, last but not the least, the pattern is made of two halves that are a mirror image of each other. That aspect of the cowl served as the inspiration for the name ‘Doppelgänger’.

I designed this cowl to feature as a guest post on my friend Elisabeth’s blog. You will be able to find the free pattern on her blog starting tomorrow!
