young girl wearing cowlThis cowl may be modeled by a "little woman", but it is made for adults. This is a simple and fun project. Big warm scarves are great, but sometimes you want something a bit less overwhelming when you are just out running errands.


This will keep you cozy without preparing you for an arctic trek. It is also made using #4 worsted yarn, making it affordable and quick. Have fun!

Total Time: 2-3 hours

Yield: As many as you like:)

  11. Ch 3, 3 dc in same space as ch 3, *skip 3 stitches, sc in next stitch, skip 3 stitches, 4 dc in next stitch*, repeat directions between * * till end. Join with a slip stitch to the top of your first ch 3. Fasten off.
  12. edging

  13. Repeat this edging on the other side. The only difference with this row, is that I worked my stitches into the "spaces" between the stitches. This was my foundation row, therefore only had one ch loop free. Working between the stitches makes it a little sturdier. Also, when you reach the end of your second edge row, you will skip 3 spaces instead of 2 before joining and fastening off.
  14. repeat edging on other side
  15. Now you just need to weave in your ends and trim.
