Hello Pink When readers! I am Bethany and I blog at Whistle and Ivy. I really wanted to call this the “30 Minute Ribbed Crochet Cowl”, and it almost worked out. It took me a whopping 35 minutes to crochet it, so it was pretty close (I’m being completely honest about the project time-frame here). Despite the extra 5 minutes, this cowl works up pretty darn fast and it’s so comfy to wear. It’s my new favorite go-to gift idea, and I’m pretty sure I need a few more for myself in different colors.
This pattern is so simple, you can honestly customize it anyway you would like. It’s also a perfect beginner project, as it only requires a couple stitches. It’s not quite tall enough to go over your head like a hood, but with a bit of extra yarn (and a few more minutes) and it most certainly could. Be sure to begin with more chains, since this cowl is worked beginning with the height, not the width.
What you need:
- Size P Hook (chunky, plastic one)
- Chunky Weight Yarn (I recommend Lion Brand Hometown USA)
Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
BLO – Back Loops Only
Sl st – Slip Stitch
1. Dc in 3rd ch from hook. Dc 21. Turn. (22 sts)
2. – 20. Work in BLO (this makes the ribbed texture)
Ch 2. Dc in same st. Dc 21. Turn. (22 sts)
Literally, that’s it. So quick and simple. From here, fold your cowl in half, with the ribs going vertically. Loosely sl st down the side, sewing the ends together forming a tube. Weave in your ends ( I like to use a smaller hook to do this). If you would like to make it shorter (more snug around your neck), you can work less rows. You can also work more to make it longer.
I just swoon over those gorgeous, chunky stitches. Chunky projects have been my favorite lately.
I hope you have a wonderful Holiday this weekend and a Happy beginning to the New Year!
