As the weather turns cooler I knew my daughter would be needing a new scarf this year. Only problem is im not a huge fan of scarves on my little girl, call me a paranoid mom. So I decided I would go the cowl route, and I’m quite happy I did! as they work up SO much faster than a scarf!
If are a bit of an experience crocheter, then this really will be an easy project to work up. There is no gauge, no specific type of yarn and no specific hook size. I know your probably wondering ‘How can you call it a pattern when there are hardly any guidelines?’, well, with this pattern it can be done!
I love the little Cluster/Puff Stitches I added for a bit more texture!
Ok think she is good for the winter! Like I said, they work up Really fast!
Puff Stitch Cowl
Hook of choice (I used a N)
2 Strands of Yarn of Choice (I use Loops and Thread Impeccable)
CH – Chain
DC – Double Crochet
Puff Stitch – Tutorial by Moogly Blog (I worked 3HDC together, not the 4 shown in the video)

If you have issues joining the Chain and it twisting you can check out THIS tutorial for an alternative way.
* This pattern is just basic directions on how I achieved the look pictured above, a good understanding of crochet is necessary.
** After completing each Puff Stitch I cut the yarn and finished it off, otherwise I would been carrying the yarn quite a bit.
*** I worked the entire Cowl using 2 strands of yarn, including the Puff Stitches.
For this pattern you simply CH the necessary number of stitches for the size cowl you are wanting. DC in 3rd CH from hook, as you work a DC back across the base row of CH stitches you will at your own liking add a puff stitch. *When you reach the end of the row you will Join in the first DC, CH 2 and DC in same as joining. Then continue working DC and Puff Stitches across.* repeat from *to* until you reach the desired cowl height. Once you reach the desired height you will finish off. You will then tie the ‘tail’ from the beginning of the CH into the first CH that you worked your first DC worked into it.
