The Crochet Raspberry Cowl

This is the crochet version of my popular knit raspberry cowl. Just as simple to make, and just as squishy with the bobble texture!
I used 3 skeins of Vanna's Choice in Raspberry with a J hook.  
Ch 30
Row 1: sc in 1st ch from hook and in every ch across 
Row 2: ch 3, turn, *start dc in 1st sc, (pull through 2 lps, but don't pull through next 2 lps), start 4 more dc in same st, (you should have 6 lps on hook), yo, pull through all 6 lps on hook, sc in next st; rep from * to end to end of row. (Start and end with a 5 dc bobble)
Row 3 and 5: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across
Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc in 1st st, *make 5 dc bobble in next st, sc in next st; rep from * to end across to end of row. (Start and end with a sc st)

Rep rows 2-5 until out of yarn or desired size. Seam the two ends together, and weave in all ends. 

Here is a bit of a picture tutorial to help with the bobbles if you don't understand the written instructions. 
Ch 30
Sc in 1st ch from hook and in each ch across
Ch 3, begin 1st dc. See how I pulled through the 1st two lps on the hook, and there are still two on the hook?
Start four more dcs in the same st. You should have six lps on the hook now
Pull through all six loops at once to finish the 5 dc bobble. 
Sc in the next st. 
Make another 5 dc bobble in the next st, the a dc in the next and continue along the row. You will notice that the bobble rows are the wrong side of the fabric. 
End the row with a bobble. 
Ch 1, turn, dc in each st across. These sts look a little strange, so if it helps, count them to make sure you aren't adding any extra stitches. 
Ch 1, ac in 1st sc. Make a 5 dc bobble in next st, then sc in next st. Continue in this manner across the row. 
End the row with a sc. 
Ch 1, turn, sc in every st across. 
Continue with the four row repeat. 
This stitch is a huge yarn eater, but it makes for a really squishy, snuggly scarf. 
I just love how plushy the cowl is. 
My finished cowl measures 11"x36". 
Hope you enjoy this scarf!
Xoxo, Alyssa

  1. Hello, Alyssa! When I first saw your cowl om google+ I thought that this must be a difficult project. But it seems simpler now with your tutorial. I can imagine this cowl in blue and how fabulous it would looks with jeans. I pinned your picture and bookmarked your page. I hope to make one soon. :-)

  2. I don't crochet but my daughter does. I'm sending the pattern over to her. It is really beautiful. I don't know how you do it week after week. You are so talented.

  3. I have a question,

    you have Row 1: dc in 1st cb from hook and in every ch across

    but on your pictures you have

    Sc in 1st ch from hook and in each ch across

    I am assuming picture is correct?

    1. You're right, just a typo on my part. It is sc.

  4. I love this cowl, but you go back and forth between using SC and dc between the bobbles in both the written instructions and thetyping that follows the pictures. I will still give this a go though. Just wanted to let you know.

    1. Thanks for telling me! It is supposed to be a sc, and I fixed it in the pattern.
