Valerie Cowl- Free Crochet Pattern

Now that I’ve got my website going, I wanted to design a new pattern to put on here!  I decided to try my hand at some filet crochet, something I had never tried before, and came up with this cowl!  The Valerie Cowl is simple,  yet, with the tweed look of the yarn, can be dressed up or dressed down!

  1. Hi, I love this pattern (all your patterns matter of fact), I’m having some problems with this on the count, I keep coming up with two extra stitches. I’ve charted it out, and counted and still two extra stitches at the end. Am I correct that I’m doing my first crochet in the same stitch as my chain 3? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
