This Cowl Is One of My Favorite Patterns

This crochet cowl (scarf) was one of my favorites to design because it uses less than one skein of yarn and it works up extremely fast which is always a win for me!

I love fast projects and If you do too then this definitely is the pattern for you. 

The Yarn

I decided to use one of my favorite yarns  (Vanna’s Choice from Lion Brand, Amazon) because of the wide variety of colors available and the durability of the yarn! It really holds up well.

I have made countless blankets, hats and scarves with it, and they still look great! 

After maybe a half hour of starting at my yarn stash, I chose the color Barley which is the perfect color to go with almost any outfit because it has a great neutral tone to it.

Attaching Buttons (Optional)

  • Place 3 buttons evenly along seam (where you joined the rounds) of cowl, attach yarn needle to 10″ piece of yarn left over from fastening off. Weave yarn down through seam and through button attaching it into place. Do this for the remaining two buttons. Fasten off yarn and weave in remaining yarn ends into cowl.

  2. Thanks for sharing! Would also look great in black and gold:)

  3. Thank you for this BEAUTY. I love this color and those gorgeous buttons!!! 🙂

  4. I’m very new to crochet, so I apologize if these are stupid questions, but…
    (1) In Round 4, if you put a dc + hdc in each of the 60 dc in Round 3, doesn’t that double the number of stitches from 60 to 120?
    (2) In round 9, are you putting the dc in the dc or hdc stitch of Round 8, or in both?
    Thank you for the clarification.

    1. Hi Wendy,
      In round 4 do a dc, then a hdc in the next st. In Round 9 you are doing a dc in every st around. Hope this helps.
