This super cowl is meant to be worn closer to the neck. It is a stiffer cowl but cozy and warm. Wear with the straight foundation edge at top. It will lay more comfortably with the pillowy edge downward. Works well with a wrap or bulky overcoat.
You could make in a smaller yarn and repeat row 2 over and over until you reach the desired height for your cowl. Just chain a multiple of 2 stitches to the diameter you want and then add 3 chains. Follow the directions in the pattern below.
Size 31″ x 6″ (12 drop inside)
For this super cowl I’m using the following tools.
Tools & Yarn:
Size U hook/ US 50 if Tunisian hook used (25mm)
Bernat Blanket BIG yarn used in sample. Jumbo 7 weight.
1 ball Vintage (cream)26001.
(1 ball does 2.33 rows)
NOTE! Add 1 more ball for added insurance just in case your gauge is off.
[Alternate hook and yarn use appropriate hook listed on the yarn you want to use]
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
sc – single crochet
st(s) – stitch(es)
3 stitches and 1 row = 4 inches in Textured Stitch pattern
(1 ball does 2.33 rows)
Fantastic thing about this Super Cowl is there is only 2 rows to crochet after the foundation chain.
Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook. Skip next 2 ch. *(sc, 2 dc) in next ch, skip next 2 ch; repeat from * across, sc in last ch.
Row 2: ch 2, turn, 2 dc in 1st stitch. Skip next 2 sts, *(sc, 2 dc) in next ch, skip next 2 sts; rep from * across. sc in top of turning ch.
Chain 23. It is important to make sure foundation chain doesn’t twist while establishing the foundation. The foundation row takes the longest.
Row 1-2 Textured stitch (see above).
Fasten off with sc and cut long tail for weaving. Put both ends together. With long tail weave both ends together. Weave in beginning tail. Turn inside out
*Wear your cowl with the way side down on shoulders. It will hug the body better.

I can not find the big blanket bernat yarn anywhere. Do u have any suggestions or maybe another brand that makes the jumbo chenille yarn please.

Hi Linda. It looks like the Bernat Blanket Big yarn was a limited offering. I do not know of another chenille-type yarn in jumbo weight (#7 yarn weight), but using a double strand of a #6 weight yarn would be a good substitute or a different type of #7 weight yarn would also work. I hope that helps!
