I made this pattern for my husband. He has to work outside a lot and sometimes in blizzard conditions. He can't have scarf ends in the way of his power tools, so I thought a thick cowl would be better. He agreed!
It is somewhat snug fitting and therefore versatile. He likes to pull it up over his ears a lot to really shield him from the elements.
Best part, it's made with 3 strands of #4 Red Heart and a big ol' hook. That means you can whip this up in less than an hour! Have fun.
Total Time: Less than 1 hour
Yield: As many as you like
- 11.5 mm crochet hook
- around 300 yards #4 worsted weight yarn
- embroidery needle for weaving in ends
- With 3 strands of yarn and a 11.5mm hook, ch 30. Join with a slip stitch in the first ch to make a ring.
- Ch 3, 1 dc in each ch around till end. Join to top of first ch 3.
- Ch 3, 1 dc in each dc around till end. Join to top of first ch 3.
- Repeat last row 6 more times. Fasten off and weave in ends.
- This will stay up in the back to cover those cold ears!
- You may just want it down around your neck though.
- You'll be ready to go out in any weather!
