The DTR Cowl - The Double Triple Crochet Stitch | Posh Pooch Designs

The DTR Cowl Crochet Pattern
by Sara Sach of
We will be learning how to Crochet
The Double Triple Crochet Stitch




Sometimes referred to as the Double Treble Stitch
We Will Use The
DTR Stitch
 to crochet
 the DTR Cowl.
The yarn I am using is the Ice Cream yarn
 By Lion Brand.
It is Light (3) Yarn. It is soft and light.
But any Light (3) will work for this pattern.

I chose this yarn because it is soft and light,

 and perfect for those who are going 
through Chemo treatments.
The Cowl measures about 18 X 11 inches.
It's wonderful cowl, but can also be pulled 
up and worn as a hood.
The Pattern can be easily adjusted 
in length and width.

Live With Sara - Help My Stitch Count Is Not Right! | Posh Pooch Designs

Live With Sara
Today's Topic
"Help, My Stitch Count Is Not Right!"

See The Video on my Youtube Crochet
Channel at This LINK
What is a "Stitch Count"?
A Stitch Count is the 
number of stitches needed per row.
This Swatch has 16 dc.
Make sure to read the notes on the pattern. 
It will tell you if a ch3 counts as a dc.

It is important to count every row or round, 
or you may have to pull out stitches.



What if I 
have too many Stitches
at the end
 of my row?
If you have too many stitches, and you are off by just 1 you can always do a decrease stitch.
But if you are off by several stitches, count your stitches from the previous row and 
figure out where you went wrong. 




What if I
 don't have enough at the end
 of my row?
If you are short just one stitch you can even it out with an increase st, but again is you are off by several you will need to pull out the stitches
 and correct the error.

Counting Your stitches as you go is very important.
It will save you time and frustration.
