Enjoy this cowl scarf pattern any way that you like. Wear it long like a scarf, or wrap it cozy around the neck to stay warm in the super cold winter weather.
This chunky cowl scarf pattern created from the yarn that was sent to me by Red Heart. This one is the Chunky Soft, which is available in 8 colors. What I love this yarn is that it is so soft and works up quick. And it’s easy to work with too!
For this cowl, I used a stitch that looks great on both sides of the fabric. One side has the apricot as the dominant color and the other has the off-white. I achieved that by turning after each round. Another benefit of turning is that the seams get hidden by the first two stitches made in each round.
Last, but not least, you can adjust the length of this cowl as you desire in a simple multiple of three.
