Hi! Hang in there with me while I re-post a lot of my patterns from my old platform! I feel like I need them all in one place!
I made these Chunky Cowls a few years ago and I wore it a lot then. Somehow it got lost in my craft room! I found them when I started cleaning the room for a makeover! Check out the transformation here! It was so embarrassingly messy! I can't believe I shared the mess with everyone! This cowl is one of the earliest patterns I designed so it's not difficult for a beginner. It uses half double crochet stitches worked back and forth (instead of the round). It's extremely easy to customize to whatever size you want!
For this cowl, I used 2 strands of worsted weight yarn however you can use 1 strand super bulky yarn.
MEASUREMENTS Child (Adult) Size (easily adaptable for child size) Measurements (approx): 19 (29) Inches Circumference | 7.5 (10.5) Inches Tall MATERIALS Yarn: 2 Strands of Worsted Weight Yarn like Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice
Pom Pom Maker (Large) | You can use a cardboard or your hands but I would recommend a pom maker
ABBREVIATIONS sl st - slip stitch ch - chain st(s) - stitch/stitches sc - single crochet
hdc - Half double crochet
bpdc - back post double crochet
Pattern Notes: The beginning chains do not count as a st.
With 2 strands of worsted weight yarn OR 1 strand of super bulky yarn:
ch 46 (60) or any even number of chains until you've reach desired circumference measurement. Join with a sl st to the beginning ch, careful not to twist your work.
Round 1-10 (14): ch1, 1hdc into the same st, hdc into each st all the way around. sl st to the beginning ch1, ch1 & turn your work.
Round 11-12 (15-16) : ch2, bpdc into the same post as the ch2, *fpdc into the post of the next post, bpdc into the back of the next post, Repeat from * all the way around ending with a fpdc. Sl st into the top of the first bpdc.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Cord & Pom Pom Chain a long piece that is approx. 5-7" longer than the circumference of your cowl (or longer if you like). My adult cowl is 29", so I made a cord by chaining until my piece measured 36" (29" + 7" = 36"). Be sure to leave a tail when you start the slip knot and when you cut off the other end to tie to the pom pom. Using a yarn needle, weave the cord through the 11th (15th) (middle of ribbing edges) round of the cowl. Make sure the seam is in the back. I used a contrasting color cord to show you where it should go in the below photo (iPhone photo makes it look brighter yellow).
Using a large (or whatever size you prefer) pom pom maker, make 2 pom poms and use the tail ends of the cord to tie it. For the child size, I used a smaller pom maker and super bulky yarn. It's really your preference!
