Crochet Jumbo Cowl

This yarn. I love it. It's so thick and chunky but I found that it was hard to figure out what to make with it. I made a partial blanket and it got waaaay too heavy. At least my son had fun "helping".

So..... I frogged it.

And made a cowl.

Its pretty simple to make since the yarn is HUGE and the hook is 25mm. It took me less than 30 minutes!


Loops & Thread "Chunky Grande" yarn (1-2 skeins)
25mm Crochet Hook
Large stitch marker (optional)


Starting with a slip knot, 
Chain as long as you want for the circumference you want. I chained 17.

Join the chain by doing a slip stitch to the first chain (careful not to twist stitches). 
Chain 1, 1 single crochet into each stitch all the way around (do not slip stitch to join the round)

Note: The rest of the cowl is crocheted in a continuous round and in the back loops only. If needed, place a marker at the beginning of the round.

Go straight into the first single crochet but crocheting into the back loops only. Continue crocheting 1 single crochet into the back loops only of each stitch until desired height is reached, slip stitch to the last stitch at the end of the last round. 

The yarn was large enough that I use my hands/fingers to weave in ends.

I just love the beauty of the stitches when crocheted into the back loops.
