This wonderfully chunky neckwarmer is “Semita Cowl.” It is made in the super bulky yarn Malabrigo Rasta, and with a Q [16 mm] crochet hook. Those are the really big, usually plastic ones. You’ll need two skeins of Rasta, but you won’t use quite all of the second one.
It’s double sided!
This cowl is made using post stitches. If you’ve never used post stitches, you might not know how. See my tutorial by clicking here. The post stitches produce an extra thick fabric! Between the super bulky yarn and the post stitches, this is a thick cowl! Another interesting thing that post stitches do is produce texture. You can see the texture of one side in the picture above. That’s the same side as this picture:
The finished cowl is about 27 inches [68 cm] around and 7 1/2 inches [19 cm] wide. It’s very warm. I finished this cowl while on a road trip with the Mister. We stopped for dinner at a pizza place in Ardmore, OK (Ten Star Pizza Kitchen, yum!). I’m always cold in restaurants. I went back out to the car to grab this cowl and was almost instantly warmer after putting it on. It kept me pleasantly warm while we finished dinner, even though I was wearing short sleeves. Keep it handy!
