This chunky crochet cowl pattern is one of my all-time favorite beginner projects! Not only is the pattern super simple to follow, but can be completed in about an hour [or less!] thanks to the chunky yarn!
Hello there! Today I’ll be sharing with you a super simple project to help get through the winter – the Chunky Crochet Cowl Pattern! Whip a few up in any of your favorite bright colors to help cheer up an otherwise cold, rainy or snowy day :). It would also work as a great last minute gift because it can be made an about an hour or two. I love quick projects, don’t you!?
The piece is worked back and forth in rows and whip stitched together to turn into an infinity scarf. The scarf is very long and is meant to be wrapped two or three times around the neck.
For the pattern, I used Bernat Collegiate Chunky Yarn that I had found at JoAnn’s quite a while ago. I had made a couple of small projects with this skein already and ended up using the rest of it up for this cowl.
I don’t believe JoAnn’s always keep this yarn in stock, but I think they typically carry it at the beginning of the school year. If you are unable to find this yarn, any bulky acrylic yarn will do. If I had to guess the yardage used in this project, I am thinking it probably took about 350 yards.
So now, it’s about that time…grab your hook and yarn and let’s crochet away! 🙂
Check out the video tutorial below!
