Cozy Crochet Cowl
To begin this Cozy Crochet Cowl, choose a yarn that you wish to work with and choose your crochet hook size. Remember chunky yarns will require a larger hook. Try size “N”. Your 4ply yarns, maybe a size H, J or K. To get that really loose falling effect, your 4ply yarn can be worked with the larger “N” hook. Try some of the designer textured yarns. This is what I used on this particular Cozy Crochet Cowl along with the larger hook.
The secret to this crochet cowl is to make sure that your beginning chain when joined, fits over your head with plenty of extra room. You want it to be loose enough to be able to pull it over your head as a hood with plenty of coverage around your neck. A little looser is better than too tight, so don’t be stingy with your beginning chain. Measure it.
I began this with a chain of 80 and crochet hook size “N” Join with a slip stitch (Another good time to measure)
Row 1: Chain 1 Sc in same Ch as joining and mark your beginning stitch. Sc in each chain around and join with slip stitch.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as first Dc), skip st and Dc in each Sc around. Join with sl st to top of ch 2.
Row3: Ch 1 (counts as first Hdc), skip st and Hdc in each st around. Join with sl st to top of ch1.
Row 4, 5 ; 6&: Ch 2 (counts as first DC), skip st and DC in each st around. Join with sl st to top of ch2. (good time to move your mark up a little)
Row 7: Repeat Row 3
Row 8: Repeat Row 4
Row 9: Ch 1, Sc in each Dc around. Join with sl st to Ch 1.
Rows 10-17: Repeat Rows 2-9
I’ve found that this usually is wide enough, but if you need more continue on by repeating rows 2-7.
It’s that time of the the year when we’re looking for warmth. This project proves to be fashionable and FAST!
