One of the hottest fall/winter trends predicted this year is big, bulky, super thick yarn - and cowls and scarves of course! Well, Lion Brand has put together a super fun idea that speaks to both of those - #scarfie!
Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by Lion Brand Yarn.
Lion Brand sent me two skeins of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick - and the #scarfie challenge! Use the yarn, make a scarf or cowl, and take a selfie in it! The Stormy Weather Cowl is the result - and I love it! It's big, bold and works up crazy crazy fast with the Thick & Quick yarn. So even when stormy weather takes you by surprise, you can whip up one of these fast as lightning!

I hope you like the Stormy Weather Cowl! It was too fun to make! I don't usually post selfies here on Moogly - my kids make much cuter models - but the #scarfie challenge was too fun to resist! If you make a Stormy Weather Cowl, be sure to use the hashtag #scarfie so I can take a peek!

Ackkkkk....I may have to unfollow you for a while until I can get caught up with everything I have started... I am "almost" finished the Alpaca Your Wrap and have enough yarn to make 2 more, but now you post this little beauty!
😀 No, don't go! lol This one is crazy fast - whip it up when you need a little break from a larger project. 😉
I look ti like nice scarf but I never had on it just I want to be learn. How do that scarf.
Hi Teresa! The written pattern is right here. If you want to learn to crochet, check out this video series! 🙂
What a lovely cowl! Since I have a short neck, this cowl is too wide! Do you know if I use a thinner yarn and smaller hook if I would still get the same affect? Any suggestions on yarns & hook size? Thanks 🙂
Hi Sharon! You can absolutley use a thinner yarn and smaller hook. Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted and a J hook would be a great option. 🙂 Thank you!
Love Lion Brand yarns!!!!
Love! Love! The look! Can't wait to try it out! I'm thinking thin yarn for summer accesory.
😀 Thank you Anneke!
like very much this simple but sweet scarfie. I have make it for my daughter. Thank You.
Thank you! 😀
Hi...I have been crocheting for years. I have never done any crocheting with a bulky yarn before but I saw the Stormy Weather Cow pattern and I had to try it. Since Christmas is coming I thought about making an afghan with this pattern. It is very quick and the Lion Brand yarn is so soft.
Thank you so much and all of your tutorials are excellent.
This is Rose Curry again...
Sorry Stormy Weather Cowl Pattern...I just had to get back to my project.
🙂 Thank you so much Rose!
I downloaded all the needed to get the pattern & NO PATTERN!
Hi Linda! Did you use the green Print Friendly button, as directed at the bottom of the pattern?
Darn you for making this project so pretty and easy! I have never worked with a bulky yarn before or such a large hook, but this is so simple, I've made three already: one for my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and a coworker. So pretty and so simple! Thanks, Tamara for another excellent pattern!
😀 Thanks so much Adam! Glad you like it! Mwahahahahaha!
I finally found the perfect yarn for this and sat down to make it! I'm in love!!! Thanks for yet another amazing pattern! And of course, I posted my scarfie on instagram 😉
Oh and I ended up using Bernat Softee Chunky in Grey Heather and Emerald instead because the Emerald was so stinking pretty!
😀 I'm so glad you liked it Moriah!
So, I'm on round 3 and the directions make sense. I can see the ch-space from round 2, but when I go to work into the following DC, I have a hard time telling which loop is the ch and which is the top of the DC that I should be working into. Any tips?
i don't understand row 2
Did you watch the video tutorial linked in the pattern?
OH I didn't know u had one! thank u! I really wanted to make one of these beauties!
Thank you so much for the video. I was having trouble understanding the directions. The video helped so much! I love the scarf.
🙂 I'm so glad to hear it! Thank you Jackie!
