Christmas wreath cowl – free crochet pattern

Christmas wreath cowl – free crochet pattern

Baby, it’s cold outside. 🙂 It’s snowing and I am here at home, wrapped in my Range shawl and drinking tea from my Christmas mug . It would be better if it was mulled wine, but I am a bit sick and drinking alcohol when you are on medicines is not very wise, so I’ll wait a bit until I have that pleasure:)
I donated all scarves, cowls and hats I made for this year’s charity campaign and I decided to make a cowl for myself. Since it’s the holiday season, I wanted it Christmas themed. So here’s a simple cowl I came up with:





The bulky yarn and the big hook make the Christmas wreath cowl a very fast project. You can buy the pdf for 2 EUR from Ravelry or Etsy










The Christmas Wreath cowl

How to crochet the Christmas wreath cowl:




What you’ll need:

1 15mm hook (US size: P/Q)

2 balls of bulky yarn – I used Aria by Stenli yarn (100gr/110m) – 100 gr of green, 50 gr of red

Abbreviations:

American terms.

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

hdc – half double crochet

scbl – single crochet in back loop

Pattern:

Count turning chain for a stitch.

Chain 14.

1 row Green: dc in 4th stitch , dc 11 to end of the row, chain 3 (12 st), turn

2 row Green: dc 11, ch 2 (12 st) , turn

3 row Red:  hdc 11, ch 1 (12 st), turn

4 row Red: scbl 11 st , ch 3 (12 st) turn

Repeat until row 38 is done (second row of green dc)

sc in the two ends together with red.

sc all around the up and down edges with green to give the cowl a neater look.

Weave in the ends and your Christmas cowl is done.

You can make it longer, you will just need more green.
