Homespun Chunky Cowl pattern

So I saw this cute cowl on Etsy for sale for $45.  I knew I could make one myself and I just happened to have a spare skein of homespun in my yarn stash so I took out my crochet hooks and went to work.
By the next morning this is what I ended up with.  I'm loving it.  I'm going to go to Michaels today I hope and will pick up a couple of skeins of homespun in different colors and make a few of these for Christmas gifts.

Here is the pattern.  I just typed it up and it is sooo easy.  If you know how to crochet you can make this in just a few hours.

Hdc in 2nd chain from hook, ch 1 , *skip 1 chain, hdc in next chain, repeat from * to end of row.
Join this row to form a circle.  Sl st in top of 1st hdc and later go back and join the bottom of the rows together as well.

Thanks, Pat! Can't wait to try this! I have a bunch of random Homespun skeins and I was hoping I could make a pretty cowl with JUST one skein. Looks very nice. :)
