A chunky yarn crochet cowl makes a comfy and fast project. Using chunky yarn means you’ll whip right thru your project. Using Bernat Roving Yarn from Yarnspirations I designed this crochet cowl. I chose two of my favorite colors. I selected Plum and Quartz Pink for my chunky yarn crochet cowl. This yarn is so soft. It is made using 80% acrylic and 20% wool yarn. That means it will be nice and warm without being too hot. It is really soft and feels great against my skin.If you haven’t tried this yarn you are in for a treat. This is my first it using it and I know I will be using it often. I love discovering new yarns and fibers.
It’s already warm in my town of Chula Vista, California, however much of the USA and World is still chilly. This cowl is a nice way to layer up. It can easily be worn under a sweater, jacket or even just a top. The picot edge gives it a nice touch. You can wear it standing up over fold it over as in the photo above. The project can be made in a single afternoon and would make a great gift.
Here is what you will need:
2 skeins of Bernat Roving Yarn (Choose contrasting colors)
1 Stitch Marker
K Crochet Hook ( 6 1/2 mm)
