Chunky Yarn Crochet Cowl – It’s Super and Easy

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.

Crochet Super Scarf using Chunky Yarn

Now you can crochet a super scarf using chunky yarn.  I have created this pattern using a Jumbo weight yarn from RedHeart.  It is called “Grande” yarn.  I chose the “Foggy” color since this could work for most wardrobes as it is a neutral color.  Since this super scarf uses this chunky yarn it works up very quickly.  I wanted to design a pattern that would be easy enough for beginners to crochet.  I hope you like this scarf.  I wrapped it around myself several times and it feels so plush and comfy.   I want to thank RedHeart Yarns and Boye for sponsoring this project.  It was a great opportunity to try the Boye ergonomic hooks and the Red Heart Grande yarn.   (photos courtesy of RedHeart Yarns).

I usually don’t use Chunky yarns but creating this pattern allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and use a chunky yarn and the Boye ergonomic hooks.  I am really pleased with how it came out.   I also uploaded a free YouTube video tutorial of this project.    On the next page, I had included the free written pattern and a link to the video tutorial for visual learners.    Enjoy!
