Teatime Textured Cowl

caron cake free crochet pattern cowlWouldn’t it be wonderful if your favorite past time was actually good for you? Research suggests that crocheting and other needle crafts are just that – good for your health. Your physical health and your mental health can improve just by working with your hooks. This year my pattern focus will be on feel good projects. The Teatime textured chunky crochet cowl is designed with happiness in mind. Read more about the healing powers of crochet on this site!

This crochet cowl pattern was one for all senses. I bought the Caron Tea cake Yarn for it’s squishiness, used my wooden bamboo hook for an organic, earthy feel and made a bumpy variation of the half double crochet stitch for texture.

Materials needed to make the textured chunky crochet cowl

1 Cake of Bulky Weight Yarn (Caron Tea Cake in Winter Berry)

Size 9.00 mm / US size M (I normally love my jumbo Clover Hooks but for this yarn I preferred using a bamboo hook from this set. It gave me an earthy, organic feel to use the wood with these colors – I like to use all my senses to crochet)

Pattern Notes

The chunky crochet cowl measures 26” x 10.5” but can be customized easily to fit your preference! I used an awesomely simple but somehow cleverly textured stitch that gave my fabric a knit look because it is worked in the round. Chunky yarn lends itself to simple and straight forward stitches, don’t you think?

End all Rounds by making the last st into the same st as joining the last Round, slst into the second st of the Round and start the next Round with a ch 1, PS into the next st. This method helps conceal your Round ends and works for any hdc or dc crochet projects in the round! See this post to learn more about this invisible seam!

Pattern Stitch is a variation of the half double crochet stitch. You will yo, pull through the st AND pull through the first lp on your hook. This gives your stitch a little “bump” in the front and is wonderfully textured when you use a bulky weight yarn.
