    I was going through my Christmas gift planner the other day and had this moment of panic when I looked at how much I had planned to make this year.  Rather than get totally stressed out and throw myself a pity party, I pulled myself together and started making an action plan.  My goal was to create something quick and easy.  I wanted it to be so easy that even an absolute beginner should be able to pump out dozens of these by the holidays.  Nothing works up quicker than chunky wool and a super-sized crochet hook.  With that in mind, I picked up one of the biggest crochet hooks I’ve got and some chunky wool and got to work.  Soon, the Super Quick Chunky Cowl Crochet Pattern was born.

    A few months ago, I made myself a cardigan using Bernat Beyond chunky yarn and I really enjoyed working with it.  I also ended up buying a TON of it when it went on sale.  When my husband saw me packing away 30 skeins of the stuff the day it was delivered, he just shook his head and walked away.  I’m pretty sure he said something about me being a nut bar, but I can live with that so I kept unpacking my new squishy yarn.

    When I say this cowl works up super quick, I mean it.  I was able to get one done in an hour with two little kids running around like our house is some modern version of The Lord of the Flies.  So if I can do it, you can too.  If you are in a bind and need a last-minute gift, make this your new go-to.

    You’ll need a 15mm crochet hook, your favourite super bulky yarn (if you aren’t using Bernat Beyond) to complete this project and you’ll need to be be able to crochet the following stitches: single crochet, double crochet and slip stitch.  That’s it!  The giant hook gives this cowl a bit of a lacy look and the alternating rows give a very subtle diagonal striping.  So grab your hook and let’s make us a Super Quick Chunky Cowl!
