Welcome to the Big Bobbles Beanie and Cowl crochet pattern. I love using super bulky yarn to create projects because it works up fast. I used Lion Brand Home Town USA and Go For Faux yarn to make the Big Bobbles Beanie and Cowl. This project works up super fast, fast like you could probably make both in one evening watching your new favorite binge-worthy show. The fur yarn is optional but it makes this cowl so soft and adds just the right touch. I had some leftover Go For Faux yarn and was so excited to add it to this cowl pattern.

A bobble in this pattern is yarn over, insert your hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through just 2 loops, repeat 3 more times until you have 5 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on your hook. Just count the loops on your hook as you go and it’s easy peasy.

I hope you love this this fun and quick pattern! Please share with me on social media. You can follow me on Instagram HERE and on Facebook HERE! Tag me @pinkplumeriamaui and use #pinkplumeriamaui.
