You know when you see yarn at Michaels and you think – Oooh! I know exactly what I am going to make with this!
But then it doesn’t happen?
Well this Warm and Toasty Twisted Cowl was initially going to be a pumpkin.
This was a happy accident pattern – and I say this because this yarn (which I had never thought to try before) is crazy soft and feels like a warm and cozy hug when it touches the skin.
I hadn’t even planned on making a pattern with it but once the cowl was finished and I was wearing it while watching Netflix because for some reason my living room felt like an icebox – I warmed up and felt so cozy. I even forgot that I was wearing it.
I think it looked smashing with my ‘comfy clothes’ – although no one was around to confirm that LOL
I may need to buy more of this yarn next year to make myself that pumpkin because I still totally love the color (personal note: it is the same color my grandparents used for their formal living room) and the textured look of the fabric you can make with it.

Warm and Toasty Twisted Cowl Pattern Instructions
The twisted cowl is crocheted back-and-forth in rows.
Using your 6 mm (J) hook (or size required for gauge) and leaving a 8-10-inch tail of yarn:
R1: Ch 25, sk 1 st, 1 sc in each rem st across, ch 1, turn. [24 sc]
R2-R48: 1 sc in the BL of each of the next 23 sts, 1 sc in the last st, ch 1, turn. [24 sc]
Finish off leaving 8-10-inches of yarn for assembling.
You can either seam this as a regular cowl using a whipstitch to join the foundation edge (R1) with the final edge (R48), or you can use the twist-technique to make the one edge of the cowl narrower.
To use the twisted technique please scroll to the Finishing Instructions at the end of this post Subdued Twisted Earwarmer. I have created a photo tutorial which demonstrates the technique.
