Lines & Dots Cowl

This cowl is very lacy with a pretty picot border. I just love the colors changing throughout the cowl!
I used one skein of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Winery with a J hook. 
Ch 81, join without turning
Row 1: ch 1, sc in every ch around, join to 1st ch with a sl st
Row 2: ch 5, *sk next sc, trc in next sc, ch 1; rep from * to end across to last sc, sk next sc, join to 4th ch of beg ch 5 with sl st
Row 3: ch 1, *sc in ch 1 sp, sc in trc; rep from * to end across, join to1st ch with a sl st 

Rep rows 2 and 3 until your cowl is the desired width, then begging the edging 
After a row 3, without cutting the yarn, ch 1, sc in each of next 2 sc, *ch 3, sc in same sc, sc in each of next 3 sc; rep from * to end across. Cut yarn
To do the other edge, attach yarn to the beginning of the ch foundation. On opposite side of each ch st, ch 1, sc in each of next 2 sc, ch 3 in same sc, sc in each of next 3 sc; rep from * to end across. Cut yarn
Weave in all ends. 
I love how geometric this stitch pattern is! My finished cowl is 19" wide and 24" around. 
Enjoy!

Navy Ribbed Scarf

This thick ribbed scarf is perfect for winter. This was made as a men's scarf for a gift, but it's so plushy and warm that I think I'm going to make myself one too!
 I used about one and a third skeins of Lion Brand Scarfie in Denim/Navy with size 9 needles.

CO 45, longtail

Row 1: K1, *k2, p1; rep from * to end to last 2 sts, k2

Row 2: K1, p1, *k2, p1; rep from * to end to last st, k1

Rep rows 1-2 until you have reached the desired length. BO using JSSBO or another stretchy one. Fasten off, and weave in any remaining tails.


My finished scarf is 10"x62". This stitch is reversible, which is nice. Sometimes I don't like knit scares that aren't reversible, since then you can see the wrong side. 

Enjoy this pattern!

Bobble Infinity Scarf

I love the texture of bobble stitches, how they're so plushy and warm. This scarf is truly for those cold winter days!
I used two skeins of Red Heart Soft in Grape with a J hook. This scarf is worked in joined rounds. 

Bobble: (yo, insert hook in next st, yo, draw yarn through st and up to level of work) 3 times in same st, yo, draw yarn through all 7 loops on hook 

Ch 160, join in 1st ch with a sl st, without turning
Row 1: ch 3 (counts as dc), *bobble in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch; rep from * to end across, join in too of ch 3 with sl st
Row 2: ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), (bobble, ch 1) in each ch 1 sp across to end, bobble in last ch 1 sp, join in top of ch 3 with sl st
Row 3: ch 3 (counts as dc), (bobble, ch 1) in each ch 1 sp across to end, join in top of sh 3 with st st

Rep rows 2 and 3 until your scarf is the desired width. Fasten off after either a row 2 or 3, and then weave in all ends. 
Bobbles like this are one of my favorite crochet stitch patterns because they're pretty easy and create this wonderful texture. My finished scarf is 9 1/2" x 68". 
Enjoy this pattern!

Chunky Cowl

This chunky cowl is super soft and warm, but made more delicate with a slightly lacy stitch.
I used two skeins of Loops & Threads Charisma in Charcoal with an N hook. This pattern is worked in rounds, joined at the ends. 
Ch 64, join in 1st ch with sl st, careful not to twist chain. 
Row 1: ch 3, (dc, ch2, 2dc) in 1st ch, *sk next 3 ch, (2dc, ch2, 2 dc) in next chain; rep from * to end across to last 3 ch, sk next 3 ch, join to 3rd ch of beg ch3 with sl st
Row 2: sl st in next dc and in ch2 sp, ch 3, (dc, ch2, 2dc) in ch 2 sp, *(2dc, ch2, 2dc) in next ch 2 sp; rep from * to end across, join to 3rd ch or beg ch 3 with sl st

Rep row 2 until cowl is desired length. Fasten off and weave in any remaining ends. 
My finished cowl is 36" around and 15" high. 
I liked this cowl so much that I made another one! This one is made with one skein of Loops & Threads Zoomba in Passion. It is 30" around and 8" high. I only started with 48 chain sts. If you would like to change the width around your neck, just chain any multiple of 4. 
Enjoy this pattern!
