Clustered V-Stitch Crochet Cowl Pattern

The clustered V-stitch crochet cowl pattern works up quick and easy for those who have mastered the basics of crocheting. It’s the perfect last-minute gift idea as you can easily whip it up in an evening or less.

The chunky yarn helps it to stand up a bit, making it the perfect cowl for keeping your chin cozy in the cold weather. However, washing will soften the yarn to give it a bit more drape, but still end up being a pretty cowl.

The open stitch pattern makes it the perfect cowl for fall and spring weather when it’s cool, but not too cold. And if you’re in a warmer climate, this might be all you need to keep cozy throughout the cold season. It has a nice texture and a lacy look, making it the perfect cowl for cooler weather.

The Stitch Pattern

The crochet cowl is worked in the round. I did one round of single crochet stitches, followed by multiple rounds of the cluster v-stitch until you get to the width that you want. Then simply work another round of single crochets to complete the cowl.

The cluster V-stitch is a combination of the cluster and v-stitch. To put is plain and simple, the cluster is basically a double crochet two together. Then to make the V, you simply work a cluster, chain two and another cluster into the same stitch or space.

It is a one row repeat, making it super easy and mindless to work on. As a matter of fact, it is the perfect pattern to complete while watching a movie.

The Size

The finished size is 28 inches in circumference by 7 inches wide. However, in a simple multiple of four, you can adjust your starting chains to any circumference that you like! Simply do a gauge swatch, then use that to figure out the chain length that you need.

I made mine nice and wide so it comes over the chin. But if you want you can just as easy reduce it by a few rounds, or fold it over for an even cozier cowl!

The Yarn

I used Loops and Threads Charisma, which is a #5 bulky yarn. It is a soft, yet durable acrylic yarn. I not only love wearing this yarn in the winter, but I also enjoy working with it! It works up well with an 8 mm or even a 9 mm crochet hook. For this pattern I used an 8 mm and one skein of yarn. If you want to make it bigger you’ll need to skeins as I used up almost the entire skein.

The chunky weight yarn gives it a  nice bold texture, but in a worsted weight yarn using a 5 or 5.5 mm you could get a pretty lace with lots more smaller details.
