New Tunisian Crochet Cowl Scarf

Rimply the edgy, one-skein, big-hook neck warmer is packin' some Heat-Trapping Technology:

You're looking at common by-the-book Tunisian Knit Stitch, crocheted not-so-by-the-book to fortify it with stretchy padded goodness. That violet one above is for DK-to-Worsted Weight yarn and an L (8mm) Tunisian crochet hook. The grey one below is for Aran/Heavy Worsted Weight yarn and an M (9mm)Tunisian crochet hook. (Instantly downloadable pattern is written for both options.)

One long side has extra stretch built in so that it flares comfortably....seductively, even? the lower neck as it widens for the shoulders.  However, I really like the grey aran weight one worn upside down so that the stretchier edge is the top edge of the scarflet.

If you're not in Ravelry, you can see more photos of both versions in Rimply's Flickr set.
