Blogmas No. 6 is the 2nd free pattern in a series of three; showcasing what you can make with three balls of The Women’s Institute Soft & Chunky yarn using Hobbycraft’s 3 for 2 offer. The first pattern is an easy chunky bobble hat… click here for the pattern. This post is the pattern for an extremely easy cowl that can be made within an hour. The chunky yarn is quick to work up and the acrylic/merino blend is very soft and squishy. Perfect to keep you warm through the winter – and a great last minute Christmas present.
What you’ll Need: –
- 1no. 100g ball of Women’s Institute Soft & Chunky Yarn (Exclusive to Hobbycraft)
- 1no. 6mm crochet hook
Stitch Abbreviations: –
- Ch = Chain Stitch
- Tr = Treble Stitch
- Sl st = Slip stitch
- Crab stitch = rdc (reversed double crochet) worked backwards in reverse direction to the rest of the hat.
Foundation. Ch 62. Sl st into 1st ch to make a large loop. Make sure your chain isn’t twisted.
Row 1 – 12. Ch3 [counts as first tr]. 1tr in each stitch along. Sl st to 3rd ch of 3ch tr. [62tr]
Top Edge. Ch1. Crab stitch in each st around – Working from left to right around the top of the cowl. Sl st into the 1st (last) st. Tie off & Weave in end. [62rdcs]
Bottom Edge. Join your yarn to any stitch on the bottom of your cowl. Repeat Top Edge. [62rdcs]
This pattern is as simple as it gets so is an ideal project for a beginner crocheter. This pattern can easily be adapted for any size by simply chaining the foundation row as large as you want the circumference, and continuing more than 12 rows if you like more height to your cowl. It can also be made into an infinity scarf by increasing the foundation row significantly.
I hope you like this pattern. I wanted to show beginers how easy it is to get going. You don’t need a lot of experience to make something brilliant that you can wear or gift to friends and family. I would love for you to share any photos of your projects using the hashtag #lovecharliecrochetdesigns
