Easy Chunky Cowl

IMG_7673Here is the matching cowl to my Easy Chunky Toque pattern.  My eldest son calls it the “cobblestone” cowl because it reminds him of the cobblestone material in his Minecraft game!

This pattern is only written for children 4-12 (19.5″-21″ head size).  To increase the size of the cowl, measure the circumference of you head and crochet your foundation row to that measurement.  For a snugger fit, minus 2 sts.

**Optional” To beat those icy cold winter winds, line your cowl with fleece.
