Learn how-to crochet on the third loop with Adriana from Bowties and Fezzes and then make her chunky faux ribbed crochet cowl.
Make 1 round of HDC, which will look like this
Now, to achieve the ribbed effect, you will crochet on the side bar shown in blue, not at the top of your previous stitches as you would normally do
So you will not crochet here!
wrap the yarn around your hook (as you would in a normal HDC) and insert it into the side loop as shown in the picture
from the top, it will look like this
complete the stitch by wrapping the yarn around your hook once more and pulling it through all the stitches in the hook and you're done!
