I’ve been hoarding this yarn for quite some time and I’m so glad because I finally found the perfect project for it. Meet The November Cowl: A super quick and easy beginner crochet pattern. (Also, this is my very first crochet pattern!!) This cowl took less than two hours to make. Yep, I even took some breaks in between! You could probably finish this in one hour if you are a speed crocheter. The yarn is everything for this project, it creates perfect drape and it’s chunky enough to keep you nice and toasty for the fall. Not to mention the colorway I used, Mesa Print, just screams fall time. This cowl is worked in the round, so no seaming whatsoever.
- 2 skeins of Lion Brand Lion’s Pride Woolspun in Mesa Print, or any bulky (5) weight yarn (I did buy this on Amazon, my local Michael’s doesn’t carry this colorway, unfortunately)
- 8mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- approx. 5 stitches per 2 inches
- Length- 14.5 in
- Width- 11 in
In US terms
- CH- chain
- SL ST- slip stitch
- DC- double crochet
- SCBL- single crochet in back loop only
Let’s get started!
CH 56, join in the round with a slip stitch (be careful not to twist stitches)
Row 1: CH 3 (counts as first DC), DC in every stitch around, SL ST in top of CH 3 space
Row 2: CH 2 (counts as first SCBL), SCBL in every stitch around, SL ST in top of CH 2 space
Row 3-4: Repeat Row 2
Repeat rows 1-4 four more times, or until desired length.
End with Row 1.
Cut tail and weave in ends with tapestry needle. That’s it! Super easy!
