Crochet Cowl Pattern

This crochet cowl pattern is sort of a continuation of our one skein crochet twisted headband project.

This crochet cowl is intended to be part of a matching set with our twisted headband, so I used the same crisscross stitch and the same Berocco remix as before.

Wearing a crochet cowl and twisted headband set.

The twisted head band was a “one skein” project ( really less than one skein) and this cowl was a little over a skein. So together, its a 2 skein project! Scrap yarn be damned! 🤣

The crochet cowl pattern is fantastic for fall, winter and spring, and the twisted headband is cool year round. It’s a great little set with a small investment of time and yarn.

The headband is a perfect little handmade gift you can make for everyone. If you have someone extra special, this set is for you.

If someone gave me a handmade, matching cowl and headband as a gift … I would be pretty darn impressed!

Your loved ones will be too. Or maybe you make these little projects to donate to strangers, which is even more fantastic.

Either way, if you’re looking for simple, easy, beginner friendly crochet projects that are inexpensive to make, the crochet cowl pattern and the matching twisted headband are sure winners.

If you’re a craft fair seller or just someone that makes a lot of crochet gifts, this would be killer too.
