Bulky Yarn of choice #5

I used- Joann’s Sensations - Rainbow Classic Pattern - Brushed yarn  - I used about half the skien (approx 325 yards) 

Other recommended yarns - Lion Brand Tweed stripes, Deborah Norville Serenity chunky, Michael's brand Charisma, Lion Brand Homespun. 

N - Hook 10.00 MM

Sizes: 3-10 & preteen to Adult 

Measures approx 13 x 13 inches

Gauge: 2” x 2” swatch =  3 rows of 5 hdc

Stitches used:
(st) stitch 
(sl st) slip stitch 
(sc) single crochet 
(hdc) half double crochet                   
(pc st) Popcorn stitch

 *Popcorn Stitch - (pc st) Work 3 hdc in indicated stitch, drop loop from hook, insert hook from front to back through top of first hdc made, place dropped loop on hook and pull through 1st hdc, ch 1 - Click here for Video Tutorial -

Sc chain-less foundation row : 

* The number at the end of each row is the stitch count for the row(#)
*Chain stitch does not count in stitch count!

3-10 year size: 

Round 1: Work a Sc chain-less foundation row of 40 sts, join with a sl st to 1st ch. Take care not to twist your work. 

(*if you don't know how to do a sc chain-less foundation just ch 40, join and sc around join and move to Rd 2)

Round 2: ch 2, *(hdc in next 4 sts, pc st in next st,) Repeat from * around, join with sl st to st hdc, 

Round 3: ch 2, hdc in next 2 sts, pc st in next st, *(hdc in next 4 sts, pc st in next st,) Repeat from * till last 2 sts, hdc in last 2 sts, join with sl st to to 1st hdc,  

Rounds 4-19: Repeat round 2 & 3 

Round 20: ch 1, sc in each st around, join with a sl st to 1st sc, 

Round 21: ch 2, hdc in each st around, join with sl st to 1st hdc 

Round 22: ch 2, hdc in each st around, join with sl st to 1st hdc, Fasten off and weave in ends.   

Optional Drawstring - Ch 100 fasten off, I just pull each end tight and it knots naturally, trim ends and weave in between Rounds 21 - 22. This will pull it tighter around the face or neck for a better fit if desired.  

*Want larger sizes - just add in multiples of 5 sts. 
*For Preteen - Adult size do 50 stitches for Round 1 

This pattern is so versatile. Here are some other fun options and ideas! 
1. You can take off rows to make a thinner cowl (not hooded) or add more stitches in length for a longer cowl.
  1. You could sew closed one end and use it as a purse or bag. 
  2. You could decrease the stitches around and turn it into a headband
  3. You could use it as a toddler skirt, with the drawstring. and pair it with cute leggings. 

 I will be adding more samples and more specific patterns for free with this soon. So keep watching the blog for more details. :)
