FO Fridays - Easy Crochet Cowl Pattern

Yay, today I have something to show you once again.
This is the cowl that I crocheted this week.
It turned out well, Kay likes it, so that is always a bonus :)




If you would like to try it for yourself:

The pattern - Easy Peasy:

Yarn: Bulky, approx 100g (I used Drops Big Delight combined with Nepal)
Hook: Size 10

Crochet 17 ch on hook 10.
Round 1: 1 dc into 3rd ch from hook, and then dc in each ch (15 dc) 
Turn
Round 2: 3 ch and then 1 dc in each dc (15 dc)
Continue with round 2 until desired length is required.
Sew together, or crochet together.

I would love it if you took part in the Photo of the Day tomorrow with Marigolds' Loft - Instagrammers Unite!


I will be sharing this with Tami, Linda and Andrea, so head on over there to see what amazing projects have been finished this week.

    1. Hi Loca4crafts,
      My daughter was a little upset that she couldn't wear it to bed, so I guess it is pretty cozy :) She has asked me to please make a similar one for her to sleep in LOL.
      Thanks so much for visiting.

    1. Hi Maria,
      Ooh, draft and winter, not such a good combo, this would work with the right wool, if you make one I would love to see it :)

  14. That's really lovely, Natalie! I wear scarves all the time, but I've never tried a cowl. It looks very warm and you wouldn't need to fiddle with the ends of the scarf. Nice!
    Thanks so much for sharing this at Farm Girl Blog Fest #21!

  17. Hi

    Is this cowl done with one strand of chunky wool, or two? There's nothing to indicate two but the picture seems to indicate that it has been done with two strands. HELP!!

    1. Hi Paul,
      The cowl is made with 2 strands of wool, but both of different textures though similar thickness. They are both Aran thickness and together make a "Super Bulky"
      Hope that helps?
      Thanks for visiting.

  18. Hi - another dumb question. Is your "double crochet" the UK version of double crochet, or the American version of double crochet (treble in the UK)?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Paul,
      There are no dumb questions, only questions which are necessary for individual growth so I am glad you asked :) I use the American version I am guessing, I use single and double crochet, so my double would be the UK treble.
      Let me know if you have any other questions.
