The Yarn

Most of us know that pearls come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. When it came to this month’s design, I knew that I didn’t want to have just a plain white or off white. I searched tons of images of pearls and these are the images and colors that really spoke to me:

As luck would have it, I just happened to have the perfect colors in my stash. The yarn I used is Knitpick/WeCrochet Brava Sport. The four colorways I used are: White, Silver, Seraphim, and Blush.

My favorite color out of the four is the Seraphim, it is this gorgeous purplish-grey color; very similar to a shade of purple in the yarn I dyed using Kool-Aid. You can read about how we dyed our own yarn using Kool-Aid HERE.

The Pattern

In April 2020 I was given the great opportunity of being a guest designer on Made With A Twist blog. My featured design was the Pearl Headband. This cowl was the design that I was working on when I thought of the Pearl Headband. You can read all about the Pearl Headband HERE.

The Pearl Headband is the perfect project to get the hang of the stitches I used to form the ‘pearls’. The cowl is worked to be reversible, where as the headband is not. I wanted the cowl to have the textured stitches on both sides so when its twisted and folded back over there isn’t a right or wrong side.

I love the texture that the ‘pearls’ create. There are plans to add to this collection later in the year, so be on the lookout.

Supplies

– Approximately 850 total yards of KnitPicks/WeCrochet Brava Sport. With the 4 colors, I used roughly 212 yards of each skein; a little more than three-quarters of each skein.
– H/5.00 mm crochet hook
– Measuring tape
– Scissors
– Yarn needle

Stitches Used

Although the design uses basic stitches, I would considering it more an advanced beginner pattern. I say this because of the way the stitches are worked, working two different stitches into the same stitch can be tricky for someone just starting out on their crochet journey.

The basic stitches used are:
Ch – Chain
Hdc – Half Double Crochet
Sc – Single Crochet
Sk – Skip
Tr – Treble Crochet

Pattern Notes

I changed colors at every 4 rows, so at the row 5 repeat. But you don’t need to change colors at all.

Worked in rows and seamed at the end.

If changing colors, leave ends long enough to use the tails to weave and connect the side at the same time.

Color A – White
Color B – Blush
Color C – Seraphim
Color D – Silver

Finished Size:    (When laid flat)
Width – (before seamed) – 94” – (after seamed) – 47”
Height – 9” tall
