This cowl is part of the Holiday Stashdown CAL. You can find more info about this fun filled event HERE.
I was attempting to organize my yarn stash and realized I had a whole pile of leftover skeins of Vanna’s Choice Yarn and amazingly enough all the colors went together! Lets just call it fate LOL. I used those lovely bits to make this squishy cowl.
The Wildwood crochet cowl is the perfect stash-buster. You can make it striped like I did using your leftovers or a solid color with a whole skein. This took about 290 yards, which is a little less than 1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver/ I Love This Yarn / Big Twist Value / Red Heart with Love / Bernat Super Value. I think this would be a really great Caron Cake pattern too!
Ok what I am getting at is gather up your favorite #4 Worsted Weight yarn and your 8mm crochet hook and get hookin’.

Ch 81 to start
Rnd 1: (Sc, dc) in 2nd ch from hook. *Skip 1 ch, (sc, dc) in next repeat from * across. You should have 1 ch left. Skip this chain and taking care not to twist, join with sl st to top of 1st sc. Use your tail from the beginning chain to join bottom.
