And it’s reversible too! This super simple cowl delivers maximum impact with minimum effort. It’s done in chunky yarn, so it’ll be really warm and it’ll work up mad quick. If you’re making your gifts this year—like me—then you ain’t got time for tiny stitches. That thing has to be bulky and quick.
- Loops and Thread Charisma
- Bulky (5)
- 3. oz
- (1) Black
- (1) White
- Size 8.0 (L) hook
- Seriously, this couldn’t be more simple. Cowl is crocheted in a long-ish strip and sewn together.
- Ch3 at the beginning of each row counts as a dc.
- Start with black (color A) and alternate between black and white (color B) for each row.
Ready, set, cro…
Starting with color A
Row 1: sc in 4th ch from hook, *dc in next ch, sc in next ch; rep from * across. Switch to color B
Row 2: ch 3, *sc in next dc, dc in next sc; rep from * ending with sc into top of turning ch, turn.
Rows 3-19: Rep row 2.
Fasten off leaving a tail about 12”. Use it to seam the two short sides together. Weave in ends.
Make sure you weave in all your ends and seam it together very neatly; that way the cowl will look equally good on both sides, and you can reverse it at your leisure.
And that’s all she wrote. I told you this would be easy. That’s one handmade gift down in about an hour’s time.
Now go forth and create!
