One Hour Double Crochet Cowl by Sweet Bee Crochet

Yesterday’s cowl post gave me the push to finish up a quick and easy design I had been working on. Today I’m happy to share with you, the One Hour Double Crochet Cowl. Yes, just one hour and guess what else? It only takes one skein! Scroll down to read more about the yarn and to get the pattern.

It took me a bit of time and some redo’s before I found a sizing that worked nicely to create a comfortable width and also an appropriate length. It’s not so huge that it gets in the way but it’s a good size to be able to pull up for some extra warmth or even tuck into your jacket for a more cozy fit.

It’s made with one skein of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn which is listed as a bulky weight (5). The recommended hook size is 8mm but for this project, I used a 10 mm hook. It is 100% acrylic and the approximate 99 yards/meters included is more than enough to create this soft and cozy cowl.

It also requires very little in the way of materials needed. Aside from your yarn, you’ll just need your hook, yarn needle and scissors. With so little required and only one hour to make, it really makes for a perfect, portable pattern. Or if you like crocheting on the couch with some tea and Netflix, this simple pattern requires very little counting so you can still keep tabs on your favourite characters and storylines.

This project is very beginner friendly as after the starting chain, it uses only double crochet throughout the remainder of the pattern. The pattern is written up with simple instructions and also includes some helpful photos as you work through it. As always, you can easily customize this patten to your liking by switching up the colour or even adding in stripes for multiple shades.

Notes:
– Pattern uses 1 skein of Bernat Softee Chunky
– After the starting chain, double crochet is used throughout the remainder of the pattern. Work up the cowl with a fairly loose tension to achieve similar sizing.
– Upon completion and after stitching the two ends together, the approximate size should be 17 inches long and 8 inches wide.
– When it comes to stitching the ends together, I use a needle to weave underneath the stitches to create a less pronounced seam.

Materials Needed:
– 1 skein of Bernat Softee Chunky
– 10 mm hook
– Yarn needle big enough for chunky yarn
– Scissors

Terms:
ch – chain
dc – double crochet

Pattern:
To begin, create a starting ch of 14 stitches.

Row 1:
In the second ch from hook, make one dc. Make 1 dc into each stitch until you reach the end of the row. (13). Ch 2 and turn.

Row 2 – 23:
Make 1 dc into each stitch of the row until you reach the end (13). Ch 2 and turn.

Row 24:
Make 1 dc into each stitch of the row until you reach the end (13). Fasten off and cut yarn leaving a long tail for stitching your ends together.

Stitching The Ends:
Prepare your yarn needle with the long tail of yarn. Pair your two short ends together and make sure the stitches on each end are lined up. Weave your needle underneath the top of each of the stitches and around to the next ones. Continue until you reach the end. Fasten off, cut yarn and weave in your ends.
