284 (372, 500, 548) yards. I used #4 worsted weight Caron Simply Soft Party in Royal Sparkle (all yardages are based on 44” cowl)
Because I am a tight crocheter I used the I crochet hook to chain with, so the chain isn’t too tight. This will also keep it from buckling. If you crochet loosely then you really shouldn’t have to go up a hook size when chaining. Rule of thumb always check your gauge.
The cowl measures 8” wide x 44” long, before sewing together.
- Chain 4 at beginning of row counts as a dc and chain 1 unless otherwise stated.
- This cowl is made in 4 different widths. Image is displaying a 8” cowl that is 44” long.
- Puff Stitch: (yarn over, pick up a loop in designated stitch) 3 times, yarn over, draw through all 7 loops on hook
- Cross Stitch: dc in designated stitch, crossing in front of dc just made, dc in last skipped stitch
