This month for the Scarf of the Month Club CAL I have designed a beginner friendly and super quick scarf project for you to crochet. This is the Escape Evermore Cowl and to make one for yourself you will need 2 balls of Red Heart Evermore Yarn and an 8 mm (L) crochet hook.
This project works up lickety-split so you will probably want to make more of these as quick gifts later this year! The finished cowl is great for men and women and can be easily customized in size as no stitch multiple is needed. Scroll to the end of my post for the full written pattern.

Helpful Video Tutorials
- This project is worked back and forth in rows, before being seamed together on the side edges to form a cowl.
- I work in the back bump of the starting chain but you can work under the front (top) loop if you prefer.
- The initial ch 2 counts as 1 hdc. This means you do not work an additional hdc into that very first st (because the ch 2 is already there and counting as your first hdc).
- Remember the initial skipped chs count as the first hdc so be sure to work 1 sc into the top loop of the skipped chs when you get back to them, or you will lose 1 stitch on every other row.
- I recommend you count your stitches from time to time to make sure you aren’t dropping stitches.
- TIP: You can place a stitch marker in that initial ch 2 to remind yourself you need to work into it when you get back to it on the next row. This is an easy fix and will help you make your rectangle 🙂
- Finishing can be done using a different seaming technique if you prefer. I used a whipstitch seam.
- There is no stitch multiple for this project.
