I chose this name because of the unique crossover double crochet pattern. It is very textured and interesting to look at. You will look like a pro, yet you will only need basic double and single crochet knowledge.
This pattern will allow you to turn a humble $2 ball of Red Heart yarn into your very own masterpiece. It is great as a gift, even better to keep and show off.
Have fun making your cowl!

Total Time: Around 3 hours

Yield: 1

Source: Self


  • J crochet hook
  • scissors
  • embroidery needle for weaving in ends
  • 1 ball Red Heart yarn, 236 yards, color; grey heather


  1. With your J hook, loosely chain 150. 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across till end.

  3. Ch 3, skip the space that you chained 3 from, *skip next sc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 sc, 1 dc in last sc skipped, *repeat from * to * till end. 1 dc in ch.
  4. Please note where your first dc is placed.
  5. When you work your dc in the skipped sc, you will simply go back and work it from the front as usual.
  6. See what you end up with? May feel a bit awkward at first, but it's really very easy!:)

  8. Ch 1, turn. Skip the first dc where you just chained, 1 sc in each ch to end of row.
  9. Repeat steps 2 and 6 in order 4 more times.
  10. Repeat step 2 once more.
  11. Now rotate your work to the right and slip stitch in that same space.
  12. Ch 2 and work 18 more dc evenly spaced at the end of the scarf.
  13. Ch 2, turn. Work 1 dc in each stitch till end.
  14. Repeat 2 more times.*The reason you are adding these 4 rows is simply because the cowl ended up too short!:) I needed a bit more length so you weren't being choked when wearing it wrapped around your neck.

  16. Line up your end with the other scarf end.
  17. Ch 1, turn. Working through both thicknesses, work 18 sc evenly along ends to join them.
  18. See? It looks like you meant to do that.
  19. Now keep it.
  20. Give it away.
