It's September! The season of leaves turning colour, pumpkin spice lattes, apples, and cozy cowls.
Cowls are my favourite thing to make. They don't take very long, only use a couple skeins of yarn, and you can usually finish them in one night. I have tons and tons of patterns for cowls but I decided to make up my own the other night. Something quick and easy.. and of course fast!
Introducing the Heidi Cowl. Yes, I named it after my sister because she called dibs on it first! It's long enough to double up, but not too long so that it hangs down to your pants.
If you're new to crochet, don't worry, this is the cowl for you!
Two skeins of bulky yarn (I used Bernat Roving in Bark)
6.5mm crochet hook
A basic understanding of crochet terms
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
ch - chain
sl - slip stitch
sk - skip
Chain 82. Being careful not to twist, join with a sl to the beginning chain.
Round 1: Ch 1. Sc in the same chain. Sc in every ch and sl in the ch 1.
Round 2: Ch 3. Sk 1 ch and dc in the next ch. *Ch 1, sk 1, dc in the next ch. Ch 1.* Repeat around, join with a sl in ch 3.
Round 3: Repeat round 1.
Round 4: Repeat round 2.
Round 5 - 7: Repeat round 1.
Round 8: Repeat round 2.
Round 9 - 11: Repeat round 1.
Round 12: Repeat round 2.
Round 13 - 15: Repeat round 1.
Round 16: Repeat round 2.
Round 17: Repeat round 1.
Round 18: Repeat round 2.
Round 19: Repeat round 1.
Weave in the ends.
Congrats, you're done! Now you can pair it with your favourite chambray shirt, dark skinnies, and tall leather boots.. maybe I should've kept it for myself?
If you have any questions or find any mistakes in the pattern, just let me know!
