I love making new cowls for my hubby. He usually prefers them over scarves, I suppose he thinks they look a little more "manly".
For this cowl, I used a nice big #6 yarn which I think made the cables even more prominent. Hubby likes thick, substantial stitch patterns and I think this one turned out pretty good. He looks cute to me!:)
Total Time: Less than 2 hours.
- 11.5 mm crochet hook
- Lion Brand Hometown USA #6 yarn. Color; Little Rock Granite. Less than 100 yards.
- embroidery needle
- Ch 13.
- Dc in 4th ch from hook and each until end.
- Ch 1, turn. Skip 1st dc, 1 sc in next dc and each until end. Be sure to work a sc in the top ch as well.
- Ch 2, turn. Skip 1st sc, fpdc around dc BELOW next sc. See?
- Skip this sc and sc in next, see?
- *1 fpdc around dc below next sc, skip this sc, 1 sc in next sc,* Repeat steps between * until end of row. Be sure to sc in the last ch.
- Ch 1, turn. Skip 1st sc, sc in the next stitch and each across.
- Ch 2, skip 1st sc, 1 fpdc around fpdc below next sc, skip this sc, sc in next sc,
- * 1 fpdc around fpdc below next sc, skip this sc, 1 sc in next sc*, repeat steps between * until end of row, end with sc in last ch.
- Ch 1, turn. Skip 1st sc, 1 sc in next stitch and each until end. Be sure to sc in end chain.
- Ch 2, turn. Skip 1st sc, * 1 fpdc around fpdc below next sc, skip this sc, 1 sc in next sc* Repeat steps between * until end of row, be sure to sc in last ch.
- Repeat last 2 steps 17 times. **This is where you can very easily adjust the width of your cowl. If you would like it smaller for a child, repeat last 2 steps fewer times. If you would like it larger, repeat last 2 steps more times.
- Now you will place the right sides (the side with the ridges is considered the "right" side) of your cowl together.
- Ch 1 and work 11 sc through both thicknesses to join your work into a circle.
- See how nice the seam looks?
- Weave in your ends.
- See the nice ridges?
- Here's the front.
- Here's the side.
- Here's the back.
- Stay warm!:)

My husband works in a cooler at his job. I'll have to make one for him to keep him warm.
