Best thing about this...it is SO simple. It is just a repeat of chains and single crochets done in continuous rounds. Even a miscount here or there won't matter. This pattern works great with yarns with long color changes. This cowl can be made longer or shorter very easily, just change the number of chains in the foundation, keeping it a multiple of six. As written the cowl will measure approx. 60 inches in circumference.
Worsted weight yarn, about 180 yards - I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Dragonfly
(which I feel is less worsted and more DK weight)
Hook J (6.00mm)
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
sl st - slip stitch
sk - skip
Notes: worked in continuous rounds. Just keep going in a spiral. Easy peasy!
R1 - sc in the beginning ch, creating a circle, ch 3, sc in same st, *ch 5, sk 5, sc, ch 3, sc in same st, repeat from * until you have 5 ch left (or if you miscounted somewhere about 5), ch 5 and sc in to first 3ch loop
|at the end of R1 before sc into 3ch loop|
R2 - ch 3, sc in same 3ch loop as last sc, ch 5, sk 5ch, *[sc, ch 3, sc] in 3ch loop, ch 5, sk 5ch, repeat from * until end of round
|at the end of R2|
R3 - *[sc, ch 3, sc] in 3ch loop, ch 5, sk 5ch, repeat from * until end of round
Repeat R3 until desired width. I did 13 rounds before the last finishing round and had a width of about 4.5 inches

Last Round - sc in first 3ch loop, *ch 5, sk 5ch, sl st in next 3ch loop, repeat from * end with sl st in the first sc.
Weave in the two ends and you are done!
Now you have a beautiful, airy cowl for the end of summer and into the fall. Wear it long or looped or tied, however you choose, and ENJOY!
