12 Days of Crocheted Stocking Stuffers

DAY 1


If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you may have seen me post about the 12 Days of Crocheted Stocking Stuffers Series that I have planned. Starting today, Dec 1, I will be posting one new free crochet pattern each day for the next 12 days. 

Each project will be something small, something that can fit in a stocking. For the most part they will be really quick and easy projects too, great for last minute gifts, or for making multiples of. Some will be quicker than others but none of them should be too complicated. Most can be made with small amounts of yarn so they are great stashbuster projects.


For Day 1 I have made a super easy cowl. It can be made in any size and with any yarn and takes less than one skein so it is great for using up yarn that you have.


The stitch is very easy to make so it is a really quick project, and one that doesn't really take a lot of thinking, great for a project to take with you on the go, or for working on while you watch a movie.


I made it in an adult and a child size so you can make one to fit anyone on your Christmas list.


How to Make a Quick and Easy Crocheted Cowl

Finished size: adult size approx. 24-25" around x 7" tall, child size approx. 18" around x 5" tall

You will need:

Instructions:


The stitch used for this cowl is a simple repeat that requires a starting chain with an even number of stitches. If you are using a different yarn, or would just like to make it longer or shorter than mine all you need to do is adjust your starting chain. You need to begin with a chain long enough that when joined in a circle it is the size you want your cowl to be. I started with a chain of 100 for my adult size, 70 for child size, and for the version I made with bulky weight yarn I used a 10mm hook and started with a chain of 54. If you wanted to turn it into a longer infinity scarf just begin with a chain long enough that it could be wrapped twice around your neck. Just make sure that however long you make a beginning chain that is an even number.

Round 1: ch 3 (counts as first hdc and ch 1), skip next ch, [hdc in next, ch 1, skip next ch] repeat around, join with slip stitch in first ch space between starting ch and first hdc (50 hdc, 50 ch spaces)

Round 2: ch 3 (counts as first hdc and ch 1), skip next stitch, [hdc in next ch sp, ch 1, skip next stitch] repeat around, join with slip stitch in first ch space between starting ch and first hdc (50 hdc, 50 ch spaces)

Repeat round 2 until your cowl is as tall as you want it to be, I did a total of 17 rows

Finish off and weave in ends
