Gotta find something to do up here in Alaska

I'm relatively new to the crochet world (I'm used to needles, not hooks) and I've been trying to find ways of practicing crochet while producing useful stuff. I'm not much into potholders and scrubbies, but I came up with a chunky cowl pattern that I wanted to share. It uses up my vast stash of yarn and it's super easy.

Various colors of worsted yarn.
Size P crochet hook
Darning needle
Crocheting with two strands at the same time, chain 52 stitches. I like to do the foundation-free method, which you can easily find on Google. This way I dont have one row thats wider than all the rest. Slip stitch into the first stitch, creating a big loop.
1. Bring in your next color by chaining 2 stitches. DC into each stitch all the way around, making 2 DC in the last stitch. Slip stitch to the top of the first DC.
2. Bring in the new color and Ch 2. DC all the way around and slip stitch into the top of the first DC.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 until you have 58 stitches or 13 rows, whichever comes first.
Cut yarn and draw up through the last loop. Weave in all the ends. I weave them in as I go, but you could also tie the bits of yarn to one another and clip them short.
