Welcome! I’m so happy you decided to participate in our Scarf of the Month Club this year! This month I have provided the All The Colors Cowl Pattern for you to crochet.

I have included how you can share your projects online, so we can find them too, at the end of this post! I’ve also linked to a tutorial I created to show you had to add your own project pages to Ravelry! We love it when you make project pages on Ravelry, so if you have time, please do!

All The Colors Bobble Stitch Cowl Pattern

You need 1 ball of Caron Cakes Yarn for this project!

This cowl is quite simple to make – it does take a little bit of time because the entire pattern is crocheted using a bobble stitch (also called a puff stitch) and single crochet. The fabric is soft and squishy and full of texture. You can wear it folded in half (as photographed) or as a single layer. I love how the levels of color are shown more dramatically when you fold it in half but if you are using a solid yarn it will look squishy and soft worn as a single layer.

Have fun with this project – the stitch is addictive and I am sure you will be looking for other projects to crochet using it!

 Supplies

Difficulty Level

ADVANCED BEGINNER

Finished Size

52 inches wide and 12 inches tall before assembly
14.5 inches wide (when on a flat surface) assembled and 12 inches tall; without being stretched

If you want it folded like I showed in the photos below the finished height folded is approximately 6 inches.

Gauge

1.4 bobbles per inch
3 rows per inch

7 bobbles worked in the pattern (bobble, sc) in 5 inches
12 rows worked in pattern (bobble row then sc row) 4 inches

You can substitute the yarn and hook of your choice for this design. Remember if you use a heavier weight yarn with a larger hook and then follow the written instructions; you will need more yarn than I used and the scarf will also be heavier and larger when it is finished.

Special Stitches

Note…do not be afraid of the bobble 🙂 it is basically a dc4tog all in one stitch…I will write it out for you below but if you have ever decreased double crochet stitches this is going to be a super easy project for you!

Beginning Bobble; abbreviated: beg-bo

Ch 3, *yarn over your hook, insert your hook into the first st of the row (this is the same one the ch 3 is in), yarn over and pull up 1 loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 of the loops on your hook.** Rep from * to ** 4 times. You will have 5 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops.  (do not chain 1)

beginning bobble

Please ignore the row which this is being worked into – I wanted to have a visual for you for the stitch so I worked it in my final row and then removed it.

Bobble; abbreviated: bo

*Yarn over your hook, insert your hook into the specified st, yarn over and pull up 1 loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 of the loops on your hook.** Rep from * to ** 4 times. You will have 5 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops.  (do not chain 1)

bobble step 1 and 2

bobble step 3 and 4

Bobble complete

Each bobble we complete will be followed by 1 sc in the next stitch. This is written in the pattern instructions below. I wanted to show you we are not doing a chain 1 to close the bobble stitch – instead we immediately work 1 sc in the next st – which ‘closes’ the bobble.

Finishing

I used an invisible seaming technique to join my side edges together. You can see how this is done in this tutorial:

If you are using a solid color of yarn or variegated yarn you can simply whip stitch your edges together instead 🙂 Need help? View this tutorial:
