BRRR! Quick Crochet Cowl Pattern

Friday, 15 January 2016
The last few weeks have been so cold here in Berwick Upon Tweed and they don't seem to be warming up any time soon.  So I thought I would whip up myself a toasty new cowl to keep me cozy.  I ordered a ton of new yarn! :D (way more than needed to make a single cowl but who's counting right?! :D) My favourite online yarn shop is Wool Warehouse where I purchased this bargain chunky yarn...
This is the Robin Super Chunky. At just £1.99 a ball it's a complete steal! I purchased just one 100 gram ball of this stuff in Claret colour, but Wool Warehouse also stock 11 other colours of this stuff! You can find it here.  In one evening I had finished making and here is the result...
Fancy making your own? You will need...
-A 15mm crochet hook
-1 ball of Robin Super Chunky in your favourite colour

Terms (in American terms):
CH - Chain
SC - Single Crochet
DC - Double Crochet
SL ST - Slip sitich
ST - Stitch

This pattern uses cross over cable stitch. To do this you need to work over your 3DC (as created in the instructions) and make your stitch into the skipped stitch. DC as normal but ensure it's a loose st to the same height as your DCs

1. CH 36 stitches. SL ST to first CH ensuring not to twist. (36)
2. CH1 (counts as a st), Make 1SC in every st around. SL ST to join (36)
3. CH3 (counts as a st), *Skip the first st. 3DC, Make a cross over cable stitch (see notes)* Repeat this until you reach the end of your row. The last set of stitches should have 2DC instead of 3. Sl st to the top of your CH3 to join (36)
4-9. Repeat step 3
10. CH1 (counts as a st), Make 1SC in every st around. SL ST to join (36) Fasten off and weave in all ends. 

And your done! Time to snuggle into your brand new super easy and super quick cowl! :)

If you do choose to make this feel free to share your cowl on our social media pages or tag us! We love to see your makes! 

Happy crocheting!

  1. Thanks so much for the wool warehouse link. I've been longing for some cheap chunky wool to play with! Now I have an excuse to buy more wool!
