Hilde The Cow

Hilde The Highland Cow is the coolest gal in the herd. Her luscious locks are the envy of all her friends. Originally born in Scotland she now calls Southern California her home and loves hanging at the beach!

Skill Level: Beginner

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions, pictures, and full tutorial video to help you along the way. Hilde The Cow is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Hilde The Cow is crocheted in worsted weight yarn and is approximately 5 inches tall. Be aware that size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun.

  • Then insert your needle through the middle of the V - of the last crocheted stitch to the right - from outside to inside.
