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.

Materials

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

Make a cowl for your sister, keep one for yourself, or give it as a gift to your coworker.  However you use it, enjoy your crochet cowl with this free pattern and spread the love!If you’d like to make a longer infinity crochet cowl, check out this crochet cowl scarf pattern here.
