Super Simple Cowl with Pattern

Happy Thursday! 

Well, why not? Celebrate everyday. Right?

Today I have a pattern for you in one of my favorite yarns of all time! You might recognize it from the Cluster Stitch Scarf I posted in August of last year.

This time I wanted to make something that wouldn't take as much yarn and frankly, not get in the way if I decided to wear it out to eat. Scarfs and bulky cowls (like my On the Fringe Cowl) are great for warmth and frigid wintery weather BUT are definitely in the way when trying to eat some Broccoli Cheddar soup while you're on date night at Panera.

I heard that thought, "Why not take it off?" well, I'll tell you, I like to stay warm. The past couple years I've taken to wearing long sleeves even in June. (Weird, right?)

Anyway, here it is, in it's gem-colored beauty!

Super Simple Cowl Pattern

  • 1 skein Deborah Norville Serenity Garden yarn; color - Gems
  • size I9 - 5.5MM hook
  • scissors
  • yarn needle
This cowl is easily adjustable to make a long infinity scarf by just increasing the length of the base chain. It can also be made smaller for children or petite sizes by decreasing the length of the base chain. Just make sure it's big enough to fit over your head =D

Begin by making a chain equal in length to a size that will fit easily over your head. (mine has a base chain length of 84 stitches + 2 {this plus 2 is the turning chain}) Join to form a loop taking care not to twist the chain.

R1: DC in 3rd chain from hook and each stitch around. Join to first DC. Ch 2.

Repeat R1 until the cowl is the length you desire. I used one skein of yarn but you can easily use two or more making a thicker cowl or even a hooded cowl.

Be sure to secure it tightly and weave in any loose ends or tails.

I hope you enjoy yours as much as I'm loving mine!

Peace and blessings,

  1. The colours are so pretty! Love this!

    1. Thank you Rebeckah, I love it for the same reasons!

  2. Oh but the Mountain Heather color looks luscious too.

  3. You know! I love scarves. I must have 20. It never occurs to me to try to make them. Maybe one day I'll give it a whirl.

    1. Wonder if anyone has ever made a log cabin quilt-style scarf? Maybe out of some medium or light weight fabrics.
      I'm sure you can do it!
