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

Supplies:

  • 11.5 mm crochet hook
  • around 300 yards #4 worsted weight yarn
  • scissors
  • embroidery needle for weaving in ends

Steps:

  1. 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.
  2. Ch 3, 1 dc in each ch around till end. Join to top of first ch 3.
  3. Ch 3, 1 dc in each dc around till end. Join to top of first ch 3.

  5. Repeat last row 6 more times. Fasten off and weave in ends.
  6. This will stay up in the back to cover those cold ears!
  7. You may just want it down around your neck though.
  8. You'll be ready to go out in any weather!
  9. Enjoy.:)
