Crossing Over Cowl
Disclaimer: This Post Contains Affiliate Links.
Here is the crossing over cowl to match last week’s beanie pattern. The cowl can be crocheted to any length by increasing the starting chains in multiples of 6.
You can use any type of yarn that you want. One of my testers used Caron Simply Soft, and the texture turned out really nice. However, I also love the drape you get with the ‘Woolike’ from Loops & Threads. So the choice is up to you.
Skill Level: Easy
Yarn: Woolike Yarn by Loops & Threads, (affiliate link) or any super fine (1) yarn.
Crochet Hook: G 4.0mm
Gauge: 2″ over 9 sts, gauge is not that important, however.
Finished Size: When laying flat it measures 21″ long and 4.5″ high. Can be crocheted to any size, however.
Ch/Chs = Chain/Chains
Dc = Double Crochet
FO = Fasten Off
Rep = Repeat
Sc = Single Crochet
Sk = Skip
Sl St = Slip Stitch
Sp/Sps = Space/Spaces
St/Sts = Stitch/Stitches
Ch 204 (or any multiple of 6); join with sl st in first ch to form ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in same ch as join and into each ch around; join with sl st in first sc. (204 sts)
Rnd 2: Ch 2 (does not count as st), dc in same st and into next 2 sts, *sk next 2 sts, dc in next st, ch 1, working in front of last dc, dc in first of skipped sts**, dc in next 3 sts; rep from * around ending last rep at **; join with sl st in first dc. (34 crossed sts)
Rnd 3: Ch 1, work 1 sc into each st and into each ch-1 sp around; join with sl st in first st. (204 sts)
Rnd 4: Sl st into next 2 sts, ch 4 (counts as first dc and ch-1 sp), working in front of ch-4, backtrack and dc in same st as join, *dc in next 3 sts**, sk next 2 sts, dc in next st, ch 1, working in front of last dc, dc in first of skipped sts; rep from * around ending last rep at **; join with sl st in first dc (3rd ch).
Rnd 5: Same as rnd 3.
Rnds 6-19: Rep rnds 2-5 until you have reached a desired height. FO at last rnd.
That is a very pretty pattern. Thanks for sharing it. I am pinning to my crochet board. Best wishes, Darlene
I love the look of this pattern. I was wondering if I could make it with rows and not in a circle. I would sew the two ends together once it is the width that I wanted.
Yes, I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. :) That’s a great idea… and that way you could do an infinity scarf that drapes even better. :)
Thank you for your response. I am going to make this as a gift for a good friend.
Great pattern! love the stitches, the flexibility, the color you used and the fact it’s free! :)
Gorgeous! Just gorgeous.
