Free Crochet Pattern: Lilac Puff Cowl

Chunky Puff Cowl at Crochet Spot

Chunky yarns are so much fun to work with. I recently was given a few different colors of Bernat Blanket yarn, a yarn that I had not had the pleasure of using yet and was dying to get my hands on. I had to give it some thought before I could decide what to do with it — you know it has to be just perfect. I chose to design a simple cowl and let this lovely lilac yarn be the main feature.

Though it is still blazing summer here, I imagine I am hastening fall by designing a chunky cowl. Want to give it a try? The cowl is very easy to make. Puffs are essentially a cluster of hdc, and you can have as many hdc in one cluster as you can manage. However, since the yarn is so bulky, a 2 hdc puff is adequate for this project.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 16 inches (40.5 cm) long laid flat, 6 inches (15 cm) wide

Super Bulky Weight Yarn (approximately 80 yards)
Crochet hook 12.00 mm

5 dc = 3’’
2 rows = 3’’
Gauge Swatch: 3’’w x 3’’h (7.5 cm x 7.5 cm) ch 7.
Row 1: dc in fourth ch from hook and in each ch across: 5 dc
Row 2: ch 2, turn, dc in each dc across: 5 dc
Finish off.

Puff Stitch: the puff stitch used in this pattern are 2 hdc puffs. See this tutorial for more help if needed, How to Crochet: Puff Stitch
