Free Crochet Cowl Pattern.
This popcorn cowl pattern has a nice sturdy texture, which helps to keep you super warm. For a looser fabric simply use a larger hook or slightly thinner fabric.
The pattern is given in one size only, but it’s easy to adjust to any size that you want. As shown, it’s the perfect size for underneath a jacket, but in a simple multiple of two you can crochet this to any length that you like. The stitch pattern would actually look lovely in an oversized cowl.
For this pattern I made the popcorn with three half double crochets, which gives you a bit of a “pop” for added texture.
And the fabric looks lovely on both sides of the fabric. Here is the “Wrong” side of it.
