Super Speedy Crochet Cowl


This easy (and quick!) crochet infinity scarf is the perfect for those times when you need to make something and you need it done now (come on, I know I'm not the only procrastinating crafter out there). What makes this project so quick? Crochet is almost always fastest when you work the same stitch across a row and the same stitch for many rows. That's exactly what this cowl brings to the table: the first half of the scarf is worked in half double crochet and the rest is double crochet. Simple. Fast. Perfect.


Another secret to this cowl's speed? Bulky yarn. Use either two strands of worsted weight yarn held together or a single strand of bulky or super bulky weight yarn. In this tutorial, we're using two strands of worsted-weight yarn held together. The strands are different colors, giving the cowl a fancy marled effect.

Finished size

This is an infinity crochet scarf designed to be worn as one loop (cowl-style). It measures 9" across and 42" long. Each section (one in hdc and one in dc) measures 22" long.

If you want a longer infinity cowl that you can loop around your neck multiple times, add additional rows to each section accordingly, matching the length of one side to the length of the other (warning: if you go this route, you may want an extra skein or two of yarn).


Hold one strand of each color yarn together throughout entire project.

Chain 22.

Row 1: Hdc in second stitch from hook and each stitch across.
Rows 2 - 36: Ch 2 to turn, hdc in each st across
Rows 37 - 57: Ch 3 to turn, dc in each st across.
Fold so that the short sides are together and seam shut using slip stitch or your favorite joining method to create the infinity scarf. Fasten off and weave in ends. That's it!
