Pull next loop from working yarn up from behind 20th loop. *Cross next loop of foundation row in front of 2nd loop of foundation row. Holding crossed loops in position, pull next loop from working yarn up from behind through next loop. Pull next loop from working yarn up from behind through next loop.  Repeat from * to end of row. Do not turn work.
20 stitches in row.
 
2nd row: Working from left to right, skip first stitch of row just worked. Cross 2nd stitch in front of 3rd stitch. Holding crossed stitches in position, pull loop from working yarn up from behind through 3rd stitch. Pull next loop from working yarn up from behind 2nd stitch. *Cross next 2 stitches. Holding crossed stitches in position, pull next loop from working yarn up from behind through next stitch. Pull next loop from working yarn up from behind through next stitch. Repeat from * to last stitch. Leave last stitch unworked. Do not turn work.
3rd row: Working from right to left, cross unworked stitch in front of 2nd stitch. Holding crossed stitches in position, pull next loop from working yarn up from behind through 2nd stitch. Pull next loop from working yarn up from behind through first stitch. *Cross next 2 stitches.

I bought this yarn after watching the video instructions. The video is great!! I wish there were more. As for the cowl neck scarf, it took me about 8 hours because I had never done any thing like it before. I had to start over a couple of times. When it was finished, I loved it so much that I immediately headed to Joann to purchase more. I completed my second one in 6 hours. I have included photos of the first one I did. The color varies in the photos due to the lighting.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-08-19</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-08-19" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="209845874"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="How To Make A Bernat Alize Blanket EZ Criss-Cross Cowl" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Jeanne</span> from <span itemprop="name">Love these muffs!</span> <span itemprop="description">I made my first one and had to tear it back a few rows several time, but I finally got on to it! I first learned by making it just one stitch to one stitch not the crisscross. I wasnt' happy with my finishing row so I changed it. I made my last row a bind off to the opposite end, instead of binding off the last row then using the working yarn to attach the two ends. I then cut a few loops that were left to weave in the tail. When finished, I pulled that row apart gently and you really can't tell where the last row was! I basically just skipped a step of binding off one end to itself and instead bound that last row off to the opposite end. It made the row less bulky!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-12-15</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-12-15" /> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">y_2019, m_9, d_22, h_6</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_bulk, prod_bvrr, vn_bulk_2.0.13</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_0, tr_2</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_26913744P83, prod, sort_[SortEntry(order=RELEVANCE, direction=DESCENDING)]</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_joann</li> </ul> <!--end-bvseo-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEOSDK_meta" style="display: none !important;"> <li data-bvseo="sdk">bvseo_sdk, dw_cartridge, 18.2.0, p_sdk_3.2.0</li> <li data-bvseo="sp_mt">CLOUD, getReviews, 72ms</li> <li data-bvseo="ct_st">reviews, product</li> </ul>
