Winter Cowl Scarf
Like most people I am in the middle of the post Christmas decluttering season. I found a garbage bag of wool I haven’t put to use yet. I cannot believe I have that much unused wool, shame on me. The farmer’s almanac predicts an exceptionally long cold winter in Edmonton, so I decided to make a extra large warm cowl.
I would much rather have my little ones model my crafts, but they aren’t available so here I am. My hair is very thick so I threw it up in a granny bun so you could see the cowl.
This cowl is really warm, and it is large enough to stay in place when tucked in. I made a little shell pattern along the edge to make it feminine.
As it is made with chunky wool, it only took me one evening to make.
For this pattern I used 2 skeins of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick brand and a 6.5 mm crochet hook.
This picture shows you how big the cowl is. The pattern is repetitive and simple so you could easily change the size to make it smaller. I love it big, as you can see it goes from shoulder to shoulder, perfect for those extra cold February days.
Cowl Crochet Pattern
Chain 30. Turn.
In the 2nd chain from hook, crochet a hdc in the back loop. Repeat until end of row. Ch 2 turn.
Doing the stitch in the back loop gives the cowl the rippled look you see in the picture.
Again in the 2nd chain from hook, crochet a hdc in the back look. Continue doing hdc in the back loop of every hole across. When you reach the end of the row, ch 2 and turn.
Continue for 50 rows, or until the cowl is 11 inches long.
Ch 1 and turn, work around the entire cowl doing a shell pattern. *sc, hdc,dc,hdc,sc ch 1 skip one loop* repeat around all the edges. Tie Off.
For fun I thought I would share another local winter picture of the frost on the trees. It is so pretty as long as you dress for it. Hope you like it.
