That's a Wrap! 7 Crochet Scarves + Cowls

Actions

Life's too short to only have one scarf. In fact, we think you should have at least seven (one for every day of the week!). From cowls you can make in 45 minutes to scarves that make granny squares chic, we've got your neck covered.

Super Speedy Cowl

Our somewhat unscientific research shows that double crochet may be the fastest stitch to crochet . That’s why this cowl is so fast to make: it doubles down on double crochet for a cowl that flies off your hook.

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.

45-Minute Cowl

This quick cowl uses doubled yarn (you’ll use both ends of the skein!) and a large hook for a lacy, open look. Because the fabric is so open, this cowl isn’t great for keeping out the chill, but it definitely can bring an outfit together.

Lacy Cowl

Spoiler alert: alllll these stripes come from the same ball of yarn. That’s right: self-striping yarn is there hero here — all you have to do is work some chains and double crochets. Easy peasy.

Cluster Scarf

If you’re looking for some beginner friendly lace, look no further. The simple cluster stitch is easy to work, and creates beautiful texture. If you’ve never worked from a crochet chart before, this is the perfect place to start.

Brompton Abbey Cowl

There’s a lot going on in the Brompton: half-double crochet in the back loop only, granny squares, and picot trim all come together to create a totally unique piece. Play with color to really push this into statement cowl territory.

Sampler Scarf

We’re always looking for things to do with granny squares that aren’t afghans, so it’s not surprising that this scarf caught our eye. A block of grannies is balanced by solid cluster stitch sections on either end. Stick with clean neutrals for a modern look, or go scrappy for a wild rainbow vibe.

Cardiff Cowl

Worked in the round with an allover shell stitch pattern, this cowl has a close, snuggly fit. Make sure you test the yarn by holding it against your neck before you start stitching — no one wants an itchy cowl.
