Quick & Easy Chunky Cowl - Free Crochet Pattern

GET THE FREE PDF DOWNLOAD PATTERN FOR THIS QUICK AND EASY CHUNKY CROCHET COWL THAT USES ONE CARON TEA CAKE DOWN BELOW.


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!
