Scraptastic Cowl

Scraptastic Cowl

"This cowl crochet pattern lets trim down those bits of leftover yarn so you can treat yourself to some new skeins! If you’re not into the “anything goes” color palate, pick a few of your favorite colors and change colors every few rows. You’ll have a completely unique cowl to keep the chill off your neck. To start, chain 80 for a size small/medium or 90 for a medium/large. Size noted is for the small. Happy hooking!"

This is a very tall cowl. It looks a lot like a turtle neck shirt. I have done something similar. I like this idea and all of the different colors pulled together into one piece. This definitely would make great use to all of those scrap yarn pieces that are left from other projects that I have been saving.

I haven't made this Scraptastic Cowl yet, but it's on my list of cowls to make. I like the idea of using up your scrap yarn and this one will look so nice with all the different colors. I have been seeing this stitch pattern in a few other projects. Is there a name for this chain one, skip a stitch, single crochet in the next, repeat. It's so easy and should have a name.. LOL I think I'll be making my cowl a little larger around so it won't look like I'm choking myself.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I like this, but the completed project on the mannequin is a little off-putting. It makes it look like youre fitting something on a giraffe. The only change Id make to the project itself if starting off with a foundation single crochet instead of the chain and join method. Its easy to learn, and makes it nearly impossible to twist the initial row. You have to weave in the starting tail, so working an invisible join when the project is finished is no problem.

This is such a bright and cheerful pattern! I think it would look especially great with a plain black or white tee. I love that it covers your whole neck - perfect for winter!
