It’s week 2 of the Autumn Air Cowl Crochet Along! Learn Tunisian entrelac crochet, while making this comfy, colorful cowl. Entrelac is a great introduction to Tunisian crochet techniques.
The Autumn Air pattern has been updated to include the 2nd section – the diamonds (or squares) that make up most of the cowl.

While working up this section, I made a couple of mistakes. First I accidentally decreased a stitch, and then later I added an extra row to a square.
One downside to this type of project is that if you don’t find a mistake until the next round, it usually means a LOT of ripping out. If I had been making the cowl for someone else, I would have ripped it out and done it right. But this project was for me, and the mistakes weren’t very noticeable. So instead, I corrected for them once I found them, and moved forward.
I have added a 2nd video tutorial to the pattern. The first part of the tutorial shows you how to make the diamonds. At the end, I showed the mistakes I made and how I corrected them to get my stitch and row counts back on track.
This week’s section is actually most of the cowl. It’s the same round of diamonds repeated several times, but will take some time to work up.
Because of that, this section will extend into next week as well. There will be no new pattern section or video next week, we’ll just continue working through this section.
What I would like to do instead is to discuss any questions, tips, or ideas that pop up as you all work through this section. If you have anything you’d like to share in next week’s post, please let me know! You can post it on the Scrappy Stitchers Facebook group (and tag me so I’m sure to see it), or send me a message on Facebook or Ravelry.
