It’s been a long, long time since I posted a knit or crochet pattern. After baby number three arrived, the spare time for these kind of things seemed to become nonexistent, but one of my biggest goals for the new year was to get back to the things that I find most fulfilling, and crocheting is one of those things. I’ve been making these toddler cowls for awhile now, my daughter has one in almost every color of the rainbow, and I thought it was time to share the pattern. These cowls whip up very quickly (less than 30 minutes), are super cute and fun to style, and they are easy enough for even a beginner to make! This pattern easily fits a toddler/young child (ages 2-5), but can be adjusted simply by adding or omitting a few stitches from the foundation chain.
Super Bulky Yarn (such as Lion Brand Thick & Quick)
Size P/11.5 mm Crochet Hook
ch = chain stitch
dc = double crochet
Chain 30, and slip stitch into first stitch to create loop.
Row 1: Chain 2 (counts as 1 stitch), and double crochet into 2nd chain. dc around. Slip stitch into top of chain 2 (30 stitches, including chain 2).
Rows 2-6: Repeat row 1.
To finish: Tie off yarn. Cut leaving a 6 inch tail. Weave in ends using yarn needle.
That’s it! Super easy, right? If you need any help with the stitches, youtube is my go-to for video tutorials, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!
