DIY: Bulky Cowl Scarf

Hi everyone! Since the weather has turned so cold, and lots of my holiday activities were outdoors, I needed something super cozy and fashionable to keep me warm! I love all of the bulky cowls I've been seeing, and I needed something super quick! I found this crochet pattern on Ravelry and knew I had to make it! It only took a couple of nights watching tv to finish, and two skeins of bulky yarn which I got on sale at Michael's! This scarf is definitely warm! Check out On the Wings of  Dove for the super easy pattern, she also has two more versions here.

 Wrapped twice and shown with my 70s collegiate tweed blazer.

 Unwrapped for when you get too warm :)


Have you made anything yourself lately? Any patterns or tutorials you've found on the web that you'd like to share??

  22. kmenho, I used Loops and Threads "Charisma" in Electric Blue, from Michael's!

  23. ooh! a kind I haven't used yet. Will look for it during my next trip to Michaels. I really loved that song by Icehouse from the '80s "Electric Blue" - I wonder if it's a sign! thx for sharing...

  24. LOVE the cowl neck scarf! Now I wish I hadn't given up knitting all of those years ago - this is FABULOUS!!!

  25. Beautiful! I've been thinking of making an oversize infinity scarf for myself, one can never have too many scarves after all.... Love the blog!

  26. I'm so inspired... got the electric blue and instead of sc's my stitches were dsc... to make it look more lacey. And I twisted the first row - so it's shaped like a mobius strip. I've made a red one, this electric blue (my fav by far!) and a sky blue one. Gonna check out more Charisma yarn! thx!
    Oh... the video to show you how to make the twist:
