If you've been around, you know I love Caron cakes - especially the bulky weight cakes that they came out with this past summer! I made an easy, chunky cowl using one of the Caron Tea Cakes and it's so incredibly squishy - you're going to love it!

Look at that color. Look at that squish. I used the same stitches I used for my Poppy cardigan and I think the pairing of treble and half-double crochets just make for the perfect texture.

I got the idea of alternating and pairing the treble and half-double stitches together from the grit stitch. The grit stitch is similar as it alternates between two basic stitches - double crochet and single crochet. I love the grit stitch too, but I thought maybe if I paired 'larger' basic stitches, I would get even more texture - and the results definitely delivered!

As for the color of this scarf, it's absolutely perfect. It's a mix of earthy neutrals and will be matching what ever outfit I plan to wear.

As a lover of infinity scarves, I have to say - this cowl might just be my new favorite.  It's now typically chosen over my other infinity scarves when I need something to keep me warm before stepping out the door.

 It's so easy to throw on and I don't have to worry about wrapping it around twice and adjusting it. Just pop it on and go!

1 skein Caron Tea Cake (English Breakfast)
9.00mm hook
Stitch marker
Tapestry needle

Dimensions: 32” x 8”

Pattern notes:

Cowl will be made in rows then the short ends will be sewed up.

Beginning chains in row will count as a stitch, so the following st made will not be made in the same space as ch

Stitch markers will help identify first/last st in the row

Gauge: 4” x 4” = 7 st x 5 rows alternating tr and hdc st

Abbreviations (US terms)
Ch = chain, hdc = half-double crochet, tr = triple crochet, st = stitch(es)


Row 1: Ch 56, hdc into 5th ch from hook, *tr, hdc, repeat from * across, turn
Row 2-10: Ch 4 (counts as st), hdc, *tr, hdc, repeat from * across, turn

Fasten off and leave a tail to sew up the short sides. Weave in ends

That's it! This cowl is super quick and easy and I really can't get over the squish to it! The Caron Tea Cakes line have some gorgeous colors - I would love to see your cowls and what color you chose to make yours!
