The bullion stitch cozy crochet cowl is perfect for keeping your chin and neck cozy against the cold winter wind. It’s nice and sturdy, so it stays up on it’s own. Plus, there is no stitch multiple, so you can easily make this for any size that you need.
The way the bullion stitches are worked in this pattern makes it looks great on both sides of the fabric. On the one side, you can see the rolls in neat rows, and on the other side, you have a slanted strand that goes over the bullion stitches. This is because I did not use a chain one to close the bullion stitches. Who knew?

How to Carry Yarn for Slant at Back of First Bullion Stitch
- The image below shows the first bullion stitch in the round does not have a slant going across.
- To fix this, simply take your tail end from where you fastened off at the previous row and bring it up across as shown.
- Then secure the strand by crocheting over it starting with the second single crochet of next round.
- Here the second single crochet in next round is complete and you can see the strand is going across the first bullion stitch as in the other bullion stitches.
