Free Cowl Pattern: Baby, it’s Cowled Outside!


By Megan Granholm


Crochet cowl

I have a scarf that’s about ten feet long. I adore it. I can wrap it around my neck twelve times and it still hangs down to my knees. I like to wear it under my jacket when I’m outside in the cold, but stuffing the ends in my coat makes me look like Quasimodo. I like to wear it inside over my sweater, but when I lean over the ends slip over my shoulders and drag on the floor, or I shut them in the car door and the ends get soaked. Solution: get rid of the ends. Duh. The result is a crochet cowl that is lacy enough to be worn with a nice sweater indoors, but bulky enough to keep your neck warm outside in the middle of winter.

Materials List

  • Opal Sock Yarn (425 meters/100 grams) in winter white, 1 skein (or any sock or fingering weight yarn)
  • 3.25mm (size D) hook

Finished Size

One size.


Gauge is unimportant in this pattern.


Picot: Ch 3, sl st in 3rd ch from hook.


Note: Ooh, it’s two looks in one crochet cowl pattern!  To make one of those popular mobius cowls, twist your starting chain 180 degrees before you connect the ends together.  It makes it look a little more interesting – a cowl with a twist!
