Free Ribbed Crochet Cowl Pattern

I thought I would share my latest design: here is my original pattern for the ribbed crochet cowl!

Yarn - I used 1.5 skeins Moda Vera Shiver
Hook - 6.5mm

Row 1: Ch 20, tun, Dc into 3rd ch from hook, dc across to end
Rows 2 - 21: Alternate rows of flo dc and blo dc to create ribbing
Row 22: sc into first 5 dc, ch 1, sk 1, sc next 6, ch1, sk 1, sc into last 5. (this creates buttonholes)
Row 23: dc into each sc to end.
Finish off. Weave in ends. Sew 2 large buttons to match buttonhole position.

Feel free to make as many of these as you like, but please do not copy or resell the pattern as your own. Thank you!
