I am often inspired by knit, but this project comes from a beautiful knitted scarf found, of course, on Pinterest. The construction looked complex and I really wasn’t feeling like an overly complex project, but I just had to have this scarf.

I grabbed some Lion Brand Thick and Quick and started playing around with the idea of creating a cowl with long tails that could be woven together. I thought about I how I eliminated sewing a seam in my Wrapped in Love Cardigan by extending a row with extra chains and there is where I found my solution.

The result on my pondering was a method to create long tails by adding chains and then working down the chain and across the other stitches. Sound confusing? Trust me, just follow the instructions for the simple one-row repeat and you will understand after a few rows.

The best way to figure out the woven cowl is to just try it out. Once you get it you can whip up a ton of these unique cowls to give as gifts for your friends. I have even included a pattern for a child’s size.

Woven Cowl Pattern

Left handed tutorial

Notes:

  • I do not count my turning chain as a stitch.
  • Starting on row two, you will chain to make that row longer and turn and work along that chain to create a  long tail to be woven together at the end. 
  • If you are using two colors, just choose a spot in the center of the cowl and change the color each row.
  • If you want to do a two tone scarf like the picture below take the number of hdc in the blo in rows 2-7 (2-10 for adult size) and work half of those stitches in one color and half in the second color.

Now the body of your scarf is complete! Let’s add the final touch with a little fringe.

Fringe

Cut 15 – 7.5 inch pieces of yarn for child’s fringe. Cut 19 – 6 inch pieces of yarn for adult’s scarf fringe. (The fringe is smaller in order to make this a one skein project. You will be attaching one piece of fringe to every single crochet and the ch 1 space around the woven section of the scarf.  Fold the yarn in half, pull the loop through the single crochet, pull the two ends of the yarn through the loop and pull tight.
