So, I have traveled from a all-seasons-summer Singapore to colder countries for winter getaway. If you have been a crochet addict like myself, you would agree that vacation absolutely DOES NOT apply to crochet; if anything, I want to crochet more when I am on vacation!
It’s very cold here, so I have made myself a cowl – infinity cowl. I like how it turns out – you know, I am really an amigurumi designer, although I crochet practically anything and everything, cowl is my first! – so I am going to show some ‘love’ and ‘warmth’ with you, especially those on the colder side of the globe.
*Please pardon the casual photo image and unwilling model, I promise to take another better photo of a more gorgeous model tomorrow*
Crochet Chunky Infinity Cowl Pattern
1. Super chunky yarn #6 – I use Lion Brand Hometown Acrylic – 3 skeins
2. Crochet hook size N13
3. Tapestry needle (with huge eyelet)
Folded – W15″ x L17″ / 38cm x 43cm
Unjoint full length – 34.5″ / 87.5cm
* You may make it longer or chunkier, but increasing the foundation chains and total rows, however, you will need more skeins of yarn. This fits woman of size XS to M / size 0 to 10 (didn’t try on other sizes, but I suspect that size L / 12-14 should fit too *
Super easy – Beginner’s Level
1 hour for experienced crafter / 1.5-2 hours for casual and new crafter
1. This pattern works in rows. Ch 2 at beginning of row (2 onwards), turn at end of row.
2. Crochet loosely
Stitches Abbreviation (US Terminology):
Ch – chain
hdc -half double crochet
dc – double crochet
* Free basics (and tips) are downloadable on simpleartsplanet website *
** Special Note: Row 1 and 2 form a set **
Make total of 5 sets, row 1 and 2 inclusive. You get 10 rows of alternating stitches.
Row 11 – dc across (48 dc)
** You may increase/decrease the row sets at your discretion, but you must always end the final row with dc row **
Leave tail of around double the full length of finished piece. Use the tail to sew neaten the last row and to sew the edges together.
* DO NOT cut the yarn, we still need to join the ends together *
Have fun making this simple, cozy and functional cowl!
