cowl

I finished my mom’s Christmas present over the weekend: a chunky stitch infinity scarf. It was done in double crochet with 4 rows of each color:

1 skein each of Caron Simply Soft Yarn Brites! in the following colors:

Each of these were held/crocheted together with 1 skein of Lion Brand Pound of Love in Antique White.

These yarns provide such a soft fabric! I worked with about 125 loosely chained stitches with a size N (10mm) crochet hook for my foundation chain. I added a single crochet edging with just the Antique White yarn (2 strands held together still) to give the piece more structure and a nice finish, and then I joined the bottoms together with the white yarn using a whip stitch seam.

Here are some pictures of the scarf. It can be worn many ways. This is how it looks when doubled up around the neck:

You can pull it up over your head to wear as a hood. I tried to illustrate this as best as I could with this picture. My dress form doesn’t have a head, so I pulled it up around the neck to show it off like a hoodie.

 

 Here is a picture of the scarf worn as a shawl. I love how big, cozy, and soft it is!

This is how it looks when not worn and folded over:

I also finished a purple-blue-green slouchy cowl, which was also done in double crochet with two yarns held together: 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft Yarn in Grape and 1 skein of another acrylic yarn (with purple, blue, green, and turquoise colors running through it)  that doesn’t have a label from my stash. 

Here are some pictures of the cowl. I like how slouchy it turned out.

It’s also long enough that it can be pulled up over the ears to protect them on really cold days:

 

If you are interested, the purple-blue-green cowl is for sale in my Etsy shop:
