Easier. Faster. Softer. Better.
Chunky yarn + big hook × easy stitch = a one hour project (more or less) that you’ll intend as a gift, but is so nice you’ll end up keeping it for yourself.

  • How to make a cowl. Speed Of Light Cowl - Step 1
    Step 1

    Firstly, here is a chart for the pattern repeat:

  • Step 2

    Chain 13 (or any multiple of 3 + 4 if you want it wider – mine ended up at about 4.5 inches wide).

  • Step 3

    1st row: Dc in 4th ch from hook. (Sk 2 chs, make 3 dc in next ch) twice. Sk 2 chs, make 2 dc in last ch.

  • Step 4

    2nd row: Ch 3, turn. Make dc in same st as beginning ch 3. (Sk 2 sts, make 3 dc in next st) twice. Sk 2 sts, make 2 dc in last ch.

  • Step 5

    Repeat row 2 until you are almost at the end of your 108 yard skein (I ended up with 53 rows). Finish off, making sure to leave a long yarn tail for sewing.

  • Step 6

    Weave in your first yarn end (the short one, where you made your foundation chain). Use the long yarn tail to sew the ends of the cowl together. I used a whip stitch. Make a little knot, weave in the end. Dunzo.
