Easy & Quick Crochet Cowl Pattern

I wanted to write a pattern for the perfect cowl I could toss on for brisk fall mornings. Not something as intense as the chunky knit cowl pattern I use when it’s snowing, just something that would keep out the whippy morning wind.

This easy and quick crochet cowl works up in a snap with bulky yarn and a size N crochet hook. It’s pretty easy and the result is a semi-open weave cowl to top off your I-refuse-to-admit-it’s-winter-so-all-I-will-wear-is-a-cardigan look. (It’s ok, we’ve all been there.) It’s functional without being over the top.

Chevron Crochet Cowl Free Pattern

Keeping good on my promise from JJCrochet’s Facebook page to share the pattern, I pulled out my notes and here you have it: a free crochet pattern for a  chevron cowl.  I’ve been obsessed with chevron/ zig-zag prints and made a cute chevron hat last night.  I’m still working out the kinks of the pattern, but will hopefully have that finished soon.

Crochet Ripple Chevron Cowl Pattern

Crochet Chevron Cowl Pattern

Materials

  • Size H (5.0mm) crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn (I used my go-to favorite, Vanna’s Choice)

Finished Size

6 inches wide; 31 inches around.

To make cowl larger or smaller, work in multiples of 12. Cowl is worked in flat, then sewn together using the infinity loop method.

Instructions

Chain 84 +2  (Extra chain 2 counts as first Dc).

Row 1: Skip 2 chain, Dc in next 3 chains. *2 Dc in next chain, 2 dc in next chain.  Dc in next 4 chain.  Dc2tog, dc2tog.  Dc in next 4 chain.* [<–Repeat is worked across 10 stitches]. Repeat from * to * around, ending with 1 Dc. Chain 2, turn. (82 stitches)

Row 2: Working in back loops only (blo), Dc in first 3 chains.  *2 Dc in next chain, 2 dc in next chain.  Dc in next 4 chain.  Dc2tog, dc2tog.  Dc in next 4 chain.*  Repeat from * to * around, ending with 1 dc.  Chain 2, turn (82 stitches)

Repeat Row 2 seven more times until you have a total of 9 rows.

Using the infinity loop method, twist ends of cowl before sewing together.  Using this method will put a half-twist in your cowl and allow it to lie flat.

Also, this was very unintentional, but I am about to leave for a long weekend and took a day off of work soooo this is a throw back to “Free Pattern Friday“.  (For those who weren’t around last summer, every Friday, I would post–you guessed it–a free pattern.)  Coming full circle – love it.

Special Crochet Stitches

**Note: If the foundation chain or herringbone half double crochet scares you, just work regular chain and half double-crochet stitches.  Your cowl will turn out the same.

FCH – Foundation Chain (or single crochet): Chain 2. Insert hook in the first of two chains.  Yarn over, draw through loop (chain stitch just created). Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook. (Single crochet created). You now have two fch completed. *Insert hook in upper loop of stitch just created. Yarn over, draw through loop. Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook.* Three fch completed. Repeat from * to *across for desired number of chain stitches.

HHDC – Herringbone Half Double Crochet. Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch. Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook. (This will be a little awkward, but it’s correct. You might have to use your left thumb and forefinger to really hold the stitches so you can pull through both of them.) Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook.

Crochet Pattern

FCH 46.  Do not join

Round 1: Chain 2 (counts as first HHDC now and throughout).  HHDC in each stitch across. (46 HHDC)

Round 2: Chain 2, turn.  HHDC in the BACK LOOP ONLY of each stitch across. (46 HHDC)  Working in the back loops only creates a slight ribbed effect.

Repeat Round 2 seven more times for a total of 9 rounds.

Fasten off, leaving a 12 inch tail.  Lay piece flat in a long rectangle.  Grabbing either end, bring short sides together.  Add a twist by flipping the right side once.  Match up sides and whip stitch together.  Weave in ends.

To create the infinity loop, instead of sewing the sides of your cowl together like this like you normally would:

Right Side           Left Side

A                              A

B                               B

You should sew them together like this:

Right Side           Left Side

A                                B

B                                A

FCH – Foundation Chain (or single crochet): Chain 2. Insert hook in the first of two chains.  Yarn over, draw through loop (chain stitch just created). Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook. (Single crochet created). You now have two fch completed. *Insert hook in upper loop of stitch just created. Yarn over, draw through loop.

Directions

FCH 45. (If you can’t quite get the foundation chain, don’t panic!  You can do a regular chain 45 and still be fine.  A FCH just creates a stretchier base which will be better for your cowl, but either works!)

Round 1: Chain 2 (counts as first HHDC now and throughout).  HHDC in each stitch across. (45 HHDC)

Round 2: Chain 2, turn.  HHDC in the BACK LOOP ONLY of each stitch across. (45 HHDC)

Repeat Round 2 nine more times or until yarn ends.

Fasten off, leaving a 12″ tail to sew ends together.  Match short ends of rectangle and whip stitch together.  Weave in ends.

You’re finished! I’d love to see your new project and so would the world.  Show off your new crochet cowl in JJCrochet’s Customer Gallery or post your project on Ravelry.
