This simple lace cowl crochet pattern is perfect for the spring and fall seasons. It is light weight to give you just the right layer of warmth once the cooler winds start blowing.
You have the option to customize the length to your liking, so you can wear this in many ways to match your style and outfits.
In this post I share the pattern for the cowl only, but you can match it up with this hat pattern for a nice fall set. Both follow the same pattern, using the same yarn making it easy for you to crochet a fall hat and scarf for yourself or your loved ones.
The light weight crochet cowl pattern is given in one size, but you can easily adjust the size you need in a multiple of 6 for the starting chains.
Mine is shown short to give you a single layer for the fall season. However, you can increase that for a cowl scarf that you can wear long over a jacket. Or, make it long enough to wrap it around once or twice to get the look you want.
I used a DK weight acrylic yarn called Red Heart Comfort Sport. It is a great yarn for light weight crochet projects for spring and fall seasons.
As with any acrylic yarn, it is cheap to buy, washes well and crochets up nicely!
A Litte About the Stitch Pattern
It worked this up with one of the first stitch patterns that I ever designed, the simple lace. With only basic crochet stitches you can create a pretty, yet simple lace that you will enjoy wearing with all your fall and spring outfits.
The only stitches you need to know are the single crochet, double crochet and chain spaces.
The pattern is turned after each round.
