I planned to make it very long, but I think a cowl is more comfortable after all. Especially for hiking, sledding ( I hope we have snow this winter) and stuff like that.
Red Heart Supersaver Aran, hook 5.5 mm
Abbreviations and special stitches:
beg ch-beginning chain
dc- double crochet
blo- back loop only
st, sts-stitch, stitches
bubble-(yo, draw loop in designated st, yo, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook ) 3 times in same st, yo, pull through 4 loops-bubble made (NOTE-the bubble will show up on the opposite side of your work)
Beginning chains in this pattern and are included in st count. They count as dc or sc.

Ch2 and turn, dc or blo dc in each st across, placing last st in beg ch1 [17 dc or blo dc]
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until you are pleased with length of your scarf. For a cowl fold your work and sew or crochet both ends together. Cut yarn and sew in the loose ends.

This is how the pattern looks with blo dc stitches, just a little bit more texture:
And smoother, with the regular ones:
And here's Mr. Polar Bear modeling the FO for me:)
And the Queen herself, too:
And here am I, in my PJs, dreaming of winter, and trying not to faint of overheating!
If you want to make your scarf wider - add three chains for each additional bubble you want to have. One for a bubble itself and two for stitches between the bubbles :)
