Warm & Toasty Winter Cowl Crochet Pattern

One of my absolute favourite things about winter is being able to snuggle up under a warm and extremely toasty blanket! Personally, the world just seems so much cozier that way. 
The sad part is, that it is deemed socially 'weird' to walk around everywhere with a ginormous blanket wrapped around your shoulders. 
So to defeat the unbearable cold, and still look chic and stylish I decided to create a cute yet extremely warm cowl. Hope you guys enjoy the new pattern!



What You'll Need
12.00mm Crochet Hook -OR- 10.00mm Crochet Hook
  4 Colours of 80g Super Bulky Yarn {14ply}
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle

Colours
{This is the lift of colours I used.}
Navy
Honey
Wine
Cream

Finished Size
Roughly 38 inches around and 14 inches wide.
{Note: This all depends on how loosely or tightly you crochet.}

Start of by taking your navy yarn and 12.00mm crochet hook and make a Slip Knot, then crochet 66 Chains. Note: If you chose to use a 10.00mm crochet hook instead of a 12.00mm hook then you'll need to crochet 78 Chains. I used a 12.00mm crochet hook.
You can easily adjust this cowl to be longer or shorter by adding or taking away sets of 3 chains.
Row 1~ Chain 1, then Single Crochet into the third chain from your hook. *Chain 2, skip 2 chains, then crochet a Single Crochet into the next stitch.* Repeat from the * mark all across, making sure to end with 1 Single Crochet into the last 2 stitches.
Row 2~ Chain 3, then crochet 3 Double Crochets into the chain 2 space you made on the previous row. *Crochet 3 Double Crochets into the next chain 2 space.* Repeat from the * mark all across, making sure to end with 1 Double Crochet into the last stitch.
Row 3~ Change yarn colour to honey, then Chain 1. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the space between the double crochet and set of 3 double crochets you made on the previous row. *Chain 2, then crochet 1 Single Crochet between the sets of 3 double crochets.* The photo below should help explain what I mean. Repeat from the * mark all across, making sure to end with 1 Single Crochet into the top of chain 3.


Row 4~ Change yarn colour to wine, then Chain 3, then crochet 3 Double Crochets into the chain 2 space you made on the previous row. *Crochet 3 Double Crochets into the next chain 2 space.* Repeat from the * mark all across, making sure to end with 1 Double Crochet into the last stitch.
Row 5~ Change yarn colour to honey, then Chain 1. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the space between the double crochet and set of 3 double crochets you made on the previous row. *Chain 2, then crochet 1 Single Crochet between the sets of 3 double crochets.* Repeat from the * mark all across, making sure to end with 1 Single Crochet into the top of chain 3.
Row 6~ Change yarn colour to cream. then repeat row 2. 
Row 7~ Change yarn colour to honey, then repeat row 3. 
Row 8~ Change yarn colour to navy, then repeat row 2.
Row 9~ Change yarn colour to honey, then repeat row 3.
Row 10~ Change yarn colour to wine, then repeat row 2. 
Row 11~ Change yarn colour to honey, then repeat row 3.
Row 12~ Change yarn colour to cream, then repeat row 2.
Row 13~ Change yarn colour to honey, then repeat row 3.
Row 14~ Change yarn colour to navy, then repeat row 2.
Row 15~ Change yarn colour to honey, then repeat row 3.
Row 16~ Change yarn colour to wine, then repeat row 2. 

When you've completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the scarf together to create a circle {thus a circle scarf}. Be sure to add half a twist once before Slip Stitching the two ends together.
Fasten off, and weave in ends.

  3. Can worsted weight yarn be substituted?

    1. Yes, but you'll have to use 2 strands while crocheting, instead of 1. If you don't mind your cowl being thinner, 1 strand is also ok, but it won't have the same chunky-iness and thickness.

  7. This is beautiful!

    Can it be worked up as a circle instead of weaving it together at the end?

    1. Yes, if you attach the base chains together with a slip stitch.

  9. It looks like the honey color you used 2 strands. It doesn't say so in the instructions. Is the correct or am I just looking at it wrong. Very pretty cowl. My daughter loves wearing these and I would like to make her one of these.

    1. Hi Donna,
      I used 2 strands of 8ply honey yarn. I did this because I didn't have any chunkier honey coloured yarn.
      Hope this helps!

    1. Hello Patti,
      I'm not sure what letter a 12.00mm crochet hook is, sorry!
      Just click right, copy the instructions, then paste them into a word document before printing.
      Hope this helps!

  12. Hey Olivia I'm a new self taught crocheters. I have been on a cowl making kick. I want to make this one. I'm making mine in the round. Just starting on the 3rd row. I must be drawing a blank, I just don't understand the directions for this row. Can you please help me with it?

  13. Hi Olivia ! I just wanted to say this is BEAUTIFUL! You are so talented with color combinations and stitch combinations. I went out to google to see if I could help answer everyone's q about the size 12 hook, and I couldn't find any charts that had 12 on any measurement (mm, US, or UK ?)
    Is it maybe that super big one, the "speed hook" it's sometimes called?
