This is a very easy to crochet cowl. The nice thing about it is that it's flexible. Since the holes in it are symmetrical, you can button it in a variety of ways:

  • Full length for a loose fitting cowl
  • A little tight to fit snugly around the face
  • Tightly to fit like a scarf


Materials List

  • I used a skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn, but it can easily be adapted to fit any yarn weight.
  • I used a 3.75mm hook, but again, use any size to fit your yarn.
  • Buttons

Finished Size

12in by 25in, but you can make it any size you want. Flexi Cowl




If you use a different yarn than Noro Silk Garden Sock, just chain as many stitches (multiple of 4 + 2) to make a 12in long chain.

The Pattern

This is a project that a beginner can tackle. The final result is a rectangle of 12 in by 25 in. I used a somewhat light weight yarn (Noro Silk Garden), with a 3.75mm hook, but you can use any hook and yarn.

  • Make a chain of a multiple of 4 + 2 (mine was of 82)
  • Row 1: ch 2 (counts as a sc), sc 1, * ch 2 , sc 2 * to the end
  • Row 2: ch 3 (counts as a dc), dc 1, * ch 2, dc 2 * to the end.
  • Repeat rows 1 and 2 until desired length, ending with a row 1.

The diagram would be something like:

o: Chain
-: Single Crochet

|: Double Crochet

--oo--oo-- Row 1
||oo||oo|| Row 2
--oo--oo-- Row 1
||oo||oo|| Row 2
--oo--oo-- Row 1

oooooooooo Chains
