This is a very easy but lovely cowl in a rich colorway that is very flattering. The 3-D, textured roundels lend a "furry" and fun feel to the cowl, making it at the same time, cozier. It reminds me of a yarnie Hawaiian lei. Enjoy!

Materials-
1 skein Red Heart worsted weight yarn, Copper Classic (alternately, you can use Wintuk Rust)
1 skein Red Heart worsted weight yarn, Carrot
About 1/2 skein Red Heart worsted weight yarn, Pumpkin
Crochet hook size H
Scissors
Blunt needle to weave in tails



With Copper Classic or Wintuk Rust and H hook, ch 120, sl st to join rnd.
Rnd 1- Ch 3, work 1 dc in same spot as ch 3, and in each ch around. (120 dc)
Note 1- Ch 3 does NOT count as first dc throughout.
Note 2- Even though you will be working in rounds, you will have to sl st to join each round because of the roundels, it is easier to form them like that instead of working in a spiral pattern.
Rnd 2 (Roundel Rnd)- Ch 2, 1 hdc in same spot as ch 2, 1 hdc in each of next 2 dc, 1 hdc, ch 2, 9 times in next dc, remove your hook from the working loop, insert the hook from the back through the loop of the first hdc you made in that stitch, pick up the working loop again and make a sl st to close the circle. (Roundel made), make 1 hdc in each of next 3 dc, *1 roundel in next dc, 1 hdc in each of next 3 dc, rep from * around, 1 roundel in last st of rnd, sl st to join rnd.
Note 3- Roundels will form on the Wrong Side of work and this side will now count as Right Side of work.
Rnd 3- Ch 3, 1 dc in same spot as ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. (120 dc), Sl st to join Rnd.
Rnd 4- Rep Rnd. 3.
Rnd 5- 1 hdc in each of first 3 dc, work 1 roundel in next dc, push the stitches forward and downward, towards the previous rnd as you sl st the circle closed, *1 hdc in each of next 3 dc, 1 roundel in next dc, rep from * around. Finish the rnd as follows: 1 hdc in each of next 3 sts, 1 roundel in last st, sl st to close roundel, sl st to join rnd to beginning st.
Rnds 6 to 7- Ch 3, 1 dc in same spot as ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. (120 dc) Ch 2.
Rnd 8- Rep Rnd 2 (Roundel Rnd). Sl st to join Rnd. Fasten off Carrot, weave in tails.
Rnd 8- Join Pumpkin. Ch 3, 1 dc in same spot as ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. (120 dc) Ch 2.
Rnd 9- Rep Rnd 2 (Roundel Rnd) Sl st to join Rnd. Fasten off Pumpkin, weave in tails.


Variations:
1- If you love Red, here is a colorway you might try:
Substitute Copper Classic for Red Heart Claret
Substitute Carrot for Red Heart Burgundy
Substitute Pumpkin for Red Heart Ranch Red
2- If you love Blue, you might try this colorway:
Substitute Copper Classic for Royal Blue
Substitute Carrot for Delft Blue
Substitute Pumpkin for Light Blue.
3- If you love Green, you might try this combination instead:
Substitute Copper Classic for Med. Thyme
Substitute Carrot for Tea Leaf
Substitute Pumpkin for Honeydew
4- If you love purple hues, try this combination:

free crochet pattern lacy keyhole scarf

As you all know by now, I love to make feminine items for ladies. If I design a scarf, it has to have an element of loveliness to it, even if the rest of it has simple lines and easy stitches. Josette has a bit of lace at the edges to lend it that element of feminine beauty that makes you feel pretty even if you're wearing it with an old pair of sweat pants and a drab jacket to run a quick errand! It is also very easy, suitable for gift-giving and ideal for charity projects. The scarf was designed in a rich burgundy, a hue that will add a bit of vivid color to any gray, brown, black of navy coat or jacket you might want to wear it with. Enjoy!
