Easy Ribbed Scarf or Cowl

Here's a quick and easy holiday project - a bulky ribbed scarf, or, if you're in a big hurry, a snug cowl.

Materials needed
• Crochet hook: 8 mm
• Yarn needle
For scarf:
• 2 skeins / 200 grams bulky weight yarn
For cowl:
• 3 buttons
• 1/2-3/4 skein / 50-75 grams bulky weight yarn

Gauge
In pattern, 6 sc and 5 rows = 2 inches

Directions
Ch 2, turn.

R1: 2 sc in second ch from hook (2 sc). Ch 1, turn.

R2 and all subsequent rows: work in back loops only.
R2: 2 sc in each st (4 sc). Ch 1, turn.

R3: 2 sc in second st from hook. Sc in each subsequent st. In final st, work 2 sc (6 sc). Ch 1, turn.

R4 - R10: repeat R3 until desired width. Repeating R3 through R10 = width of 5 inches.

Begin R11 (or your prefered width) on the tall side of the triangle:

R11: 2 sc in second st from hook. Sc in each subsequent st. In final 2 sts, work 1 st-dec. Ch 1, turn.

R12: 2 sc in second st from hook. Sc in each subsequent st. In final 2 sts, work 1 st-dec. Ch 1, turn.

R13: In first two sts, work 1 st-dec. Sc in each subsequent st. In final st, work 2 sc. Ch 1, turn.

Repeat rows 12-13 until desired length.

Finishing (Cowl):
Work until the cowl wraps comfortably around your deck. The shorter side should be 19-20 inches. Fasten off, weave in loose ends. Sew buttons on each corner of the triangle end.

Finishing (Scarf):
Work until the longest side is 55-60 inches. Starting on the short side of the triangle:

R1: In first two sts, work 1 st-dec. Sc in each st across. Do not sc in final st of row. Ch 1, turn.

R2: Work 1 st-dec. Sc in each st across. In final 2 sts, work 1 st-dec. Ch 1, turn.

Repeat rows 1-2 until all two sts remain. St-dec together, fasten off. Weave in loose ends.
