Chains and Puffs Spring Cowl

Chains & Puffs Spring Cowl

This cowl works up super quick. It consists of chains and puff stitches, both of which are easy to crochet. It’s open, which makes it perfect for the cooler spring or fall weather.

I crocheted this cowl to make it just long enough for one wrap around; however, you can make it is along as you like by increasing the repeats in first round. Also, you can make it as high as you like if you want to use it as a winter cowl. :)

And because it’s so easy to adjust in size, you can basically use any type of yarn or thread that you have on hand. In the image below you can see it done in a size 3 thread with an E 3.50mm crochet hook. I did one extra repeat as what the pattern says and ended up with 19 rounds. The finished size measures about 9″ across when laying flat and 4.5″ high.

    1. Carol, I apologize for taking so long on this, but I finally crocheted one up in a size three thread today. I took a picture and posted it above in the post along with the changes that I made. Hope this helps :)

      1. Thank you very much will start on the cowl this afternoon and will let you know how it goes. I appreciate you getting back to me so quickly. Have a great one!!

  1. I am almost done with my Chains and Puffs Spring Cowl. I am using leftover yarn (“leftover” in the sense that I had only used 6 foot of the skein on another project lol). I LOVE this pattern. I am using worsted weight Aran coloured yarn from Patons (Canadiana) that is very similar to Red Heart Soft or Bernat Satin. I will make this again using a “stiffer” yarn that holds its shape, such as Bernat Saver like you did. I wonder how it would look with varigated yarn.. will have to test! Is this pattern on Ravelry? Id love to link pictures with the pattern! Lovely pattern, thank you so much! I love all your patterns and will try another one next week :)

    1. Hi Chantal, Thank you so much for the feedback and so glad you like the pattern. :) It’s not on Ravelry yet, but I will add it and post a link to it shortly :)
