Textured Cowl Crochet Pattern

I started crocheting recently (about two months ago), and since then I’ve made quite a few projects.

One project in particular, a hooded cowl for my goddaughter, left me with some yarn left over. I decided to play around with it and see what I could come up with, and I ended up making a really cool textured cowl!

Sharing is caring, so I wanted to share the pattern I created in case you find it as cute as I do! 🙂

First off, here’s the hooded cowl I bought the yarn for in the first place:

How stinking cute is that?? Here’s a link to the Foxy Hooded Cowl pattern on Ravelry that I used: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/foxy-hooded-cowl

Naturally, I had a good amount of yarn left over after that fun project, and here’s the pattern I came up with to use it up!

Yarn Weight: Super Bulky

Hook Size: 9.0mm (N)

Suggested Yarn: I used Yarn Bee True Color Super Bulky yarn in Ivory, Gray, and Black

Stitches Used:

ch – chain

dc – double crochet

hdc – half double crochet

fpdc – front post double crochet

bpdc – back post double crochet

sl st – slip stitch

st – stitch
