ScarfHeaderContinuing on from my last post, which you will find here. I decided to follow up making some scarves or cowls if you prefer! I’II get straight to it.

This cowl is a very basic pattern. Perfect for a beginner as it just uses double and treble crochet stitches.  I used 2 balls of Stylecraft Mosaic Chunky and a 6mm Hook. I used this pattern as a guideline, its free on Ravelry, yea!

I chained 200 to begin and I did about 10 rows in total, until I ran out of yarn really.  It’s worked in the round and you can wrap the cowl over twice as it was long enough and not too bulky. Next time I would try doing a smaller one, not to double it up and see how that works. This yarn is an acrylic and wool mix so nice and cosy. Crochet Cowl

Next up, this one was made for the big man in our house.  Again, its a cowl style, but don’t tell him that ! He didn’t want it flapping around he just wanted it to rest at his neck and to be able to tuck it into his coat. Men … fussy eh? I lost the yarn band and I can’t remember if it’s Stylecraft or King Cole. I think it maybe the latter.  I used a 100gram ball and 4.5mm hook.  Its just rows and rows of trebles. This one does not wrap around.Crochet Cowl

I just made this cowl yesterday.  Its uses puff stitches & is crocheted in the round.  I love this yarn, it’s from Stylecraft and it’s an aran weight yarn in a red ombre effect.  I used a 5mm hook and chained 90 to start as I wanted it quiet close to my neck.  You use the puff stitch and chain one all the way through, and the rows are staggered.  I used a 100gram ball & crochet 10 rows in total.  You can find the pattern here from The Hook Nook, she gives detailed instructions and has a link to her Youtube tutorial, but if you know how to do the puff stitch you can do it! The ombre effect was really nice running through it, definately a keeper.Ombre Yarn
