Making a Fan Pattern Crocheted Cowl

Well, this is one of my attempts to use up my "winter" yarn stash before spring officially arrives. There's some white left, but it's rapidly melting away and the air is unusually warm. Hopefully there will be a few more cold days sprinkled in there for cowls.
I designed this cowl to be a bit "drapey" and loose around the neck. Great for running about town, in and out of the car, warm, but not "arctic warm". The same pattern could be worn by an adult, it would simply be a bit snugger around the neck.
Total Time: 2 hours or less
- 1 ball "Loops and Threads", Charisma #5 yarn in the color - Eggplant
- "J" crochet hook
- embroidery needle
- Ch 48
- Join in your first ch to make a circle
- Ch 3
- Skip 2 chains
- 2 dc in the next ch
- Ch 2, 2 dc in the same ch, skip 2 ch
- 1 dc in the next ch
- Skip 2 ch, work a "shell" of 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the next ch
- *Skip 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch, skip 2 ch, shell in next ch*, repeat steps between ** until end
- Join with a slip stitch to the top of your first ch 3
- Ch 3
- *Skip 2 stitches, work a shell in the next shell, skip 2 stitches, work a dc in the next dc*, repeat steps between ** until end of round
- Join to the top of your ch 3 as last round
- Repeat last row 8 more times.
- Finish off and weave in ends, see the nice shell pattern?
- Here's the front.
- Here's the side.
- And the back.
- Have fun!:)
