Colorful Crochet Cowl

A few weeks ago as I wandered through my local Hobby Lobby, I came across a clearance table FULL of pretty yarns. Dangerous. They looked so sad and forlorn, getting marked down and discontinued, I just had to save a few for future makings:) And with a little dip in the thermostat, I decided on a cozy cowl.

These colors are incredibly fun and varied. And it is SOOOO soft. I find myself touching it constantly and wanting to wear it while indoors as well.

It took just a little more than one skein to make the cowl. I used the same stitching method as with my recent Patchwork Afghan// double crochets picking up only the back loop; that adds the little ridge that gets repeated throughout. So, a pretty simple evening project.

To get this look: Chain 25 (with a larger hook than required by your yarn-- I went 2 whole sizes larger for a looser weave). Turn. Double crochet in the third loop from end and continue to the end. Turn. Double crochet, picking up ONLY the back loop for the rest of the rows. Continue until you get to your desired length. Connect. Weave in ends. 

What a great way to start a Monday!
