Hello, Hannah here. I originally made these super soft velvet cowls to try to get a head start on my Christmas gift list, but they turned out so warm and cozy I really want to keep them for myself!
These cowls are a little different from our Velvet Infinity Scarves because I made them double-sided so that they would be super warm, but not so bulky. I’m sure I’m going to need them for the coming Colorado winter!
Bernat Baby Velvet Yarn (you can buy either two 3.5oz skeins or one 10.5oz skein)
Tapestry Needle, Measuring Tape, Scissors
Women’s size cowl – appx 12 in x 7 in, Gauge: 4 in = 13 stitches and 12 rows
Wide Double Crochet (wide DC): Yarn over (YO), insert your hook in between the DCs of the row below, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops, YO and pull through remaining two loops.
Here’s a quick video of the stitch if you’d like to see where to insert your hook:
Make a chain that measures 20 inches (I chained 80).
ROW 1: Starting in the 4th chain from the hook, work a DC into each chain. Chain 2 and turn.
ROW 2: Work a wide DC into each space between the DCs of the previous row. Chain 2 and turn.
Repeat row 2 until you have enough rows to measure appx. 14 inches.
When you finish your last row, keep crocheting and slip stitch the two ends together.
After you combine the top and bottom, tie off and leave yourself a really long tail – about 20 to 25 inches. Turn your work inside out, then with the seam facing outward, use a tapestry needle and your long tail to sew all four sides together.
After you finish sewing them together, weave the tail into the scarf until its secure.
Then turn your work inside out again and enjoy your super cozy cowl!
Thank you so much for coming to read this pattern; I hope you enjoy making these easy cowls! When you’re finished, please come share a picture with us on Facebook or Instagram using #daisyfarmcrafts, we’d love to see! xo, Hannah
