This necklace cowl is crocheted in a long strip and then wrapped several times for a cozy cowl. It is worked like an infinity cowl by working around on both sides of the starting chains.
Mine was wrapped 5 times in the image, however, you can crochet yours longer or shorter for more or less wraps. Thus, you can basically use any yarn and hook size that you have on hand.
And because it’s so versatile, you could wear it as a cute necklace in the summer, or as a cozy cowl in the winter.
Because it involves wrapping it around so many times, I decided to make a wrapper to hold all the loops in one place. At the same time, it looks great without the wrapper as well. To be honest, I actually prefer the look without the wrapper better. It’s a bit more work putting it on, but I love the look.
Skill Level: Easy
Yarn: Loops & Threads Soft & Shiny, or any worsted (4) yarn.
Crochet Hook: H/8-5.00mm
Finished Size: Measures 68″ long. Can be increased to any length by doing more chains. It is wrapped 5 times in the image above.
Gauge: Measure 2″ over 3 Picot sts in the pattern.

Ch 400 (or any multiple of 2), make 1/2 twist in the chains and join with sl st in first ch. Note: Hold your work in one hand and run your thumb and forefinger along the chains to straighten them. Then make half a twist and join in back bump of first ch.
