I liked this cowl pattern so much that I made three of them! I did use three different color combinations, not sure which one I like the best. The pattern is called Stormy Weather Cowl by Tamara Kelly. It works up very fast with our bulky Snuggle yarn and a big hook. The colors I used for the one below are Winter Sky and Pine Tree.
Love the zig zag design that is accomplished by going two rows down to create the stitch, a little tricky, but no big deal once you figure out where to put your hook!
US 9.0mm/10.mm (M/N)
One Skein each of two different colors Snuggle Yarn (I only used about half a skein of each, so there will be yarn left for another project, maybe another two tone project)
32 inches (81.28cm) and the width is 7 inches (17.78cm).
This pattern is not worked in successive stitches, but rather in successive chain spaces – two rows down. It makes for a very closed fabric with lots of interest, but it’s not as hard as it might sound! To make the cowl longer, add any multiple of 2 to the starting chain/first round. If you want a closer fitting neck warmer, just decrease by any multiple of 2.
