Chunky Moebius Cowl is an original PlanetJune Accessories crochet pattern by June Gilbank.

This unisex cowl pattern is infinitely versatile: make it as a short, snug neckwarmer, or a long loose infinity scarf that can be wrapped twice around your neck; make a narrow cowl for warmer days or to wear doubled, or a tall snuggly cowl for maximum warmth. You can even make a headband version to keep your ears warm!

With simple stitches and no turning or seaming, this pattern is amazingly fast to work up using a large crochet hook and bulky yarn, so it’s perfect for last-minute gifts. Use this pattern as a stashbuster for a single skein of bulky or novelty yarn, or hold two strands of a finer yarn together to make your own custom colour-blend!

Yarn: your choice, #5-#6 bulky or super bulky recommended, or 2 strands of #3 light (DK)

Hook: an appropriate hook for your yarn (at least a couple of sizes larger than the size recommended on the yarn’s ball band so your fabric isn’t at all stiff)

Sample cowls: All samples use an N US/10mm hook

  • Single-wrap cowls: 45m grey Sean Sheep Cassowary (#5 bulky), 40m green Bernat Softee Chunky (#5 bulky), 28m grey/multi Lion Brand Homespun (#5 bulky)
  • Double-wrap cowls: 116m Bernat Satin Sport (#3 light DK), held doubled (one strand each of red & purple), 55m pink Schoeller+Stahl Grazie (#6 super bulky)
  • Earwarmer: 18m blue Patons Allure (#6 super bulky)

Details: Pattern includes full written instructions, and instructions for resizing the pattern to make all the pictured options for men, women and children.
