The ch 2 at the beginning of each row does NOT count as a stitch.
This cowl starts by working flat to form the triangle. You’ll then join to work in the round to form the cowl neck. This method results in zero seaming!
The ch 1 counts as a stitch in the lace rows/rounds.
The ch 3 counts as a double crochet stitch.
When finished, this cowl measures approximately 13 inches wide by 24 inches deep, laid flat.

Row 1: dc 3 into the third ch from the hook. Ch 2 and turn. (3 sts)

Proceed to Cowl Body instructions
Turn your work, and fold the triangle piece in such a way that allows you to slip stitch to the first dc you worked on Row 29. (refer to photo below)
You’re now working in the round to form the cowl neck. You will continue to ch 2 and turn upon completing each row so that the triangle and cowl portions match. Remember that the slip stitch does not count as a stitch. Instead, work into the same stitch as the ch 2 for the last stitch of every round. (refer to photo below)
