Free Cross Hatch Button-Up Cowl Crochet Pattern

Cross Hatch Button-Up Cowl Crochet Pattern – Winter is quickly approaching but I have to be honest and admit that it’s not my favorite season; but at least I’ll be cozy this winter with this thick and rich cross hatch button-up cowl. I actually crocheted this cowl back in August while I watched my daughter swim at the lake – how’s that for being prepared! I’m sure all the other beach dwellers were thinking “um, kinda hot out here to be making a scarf.”

This cowl is the perfect pattern for the beginner or more experienced crocheter. It is super easy and quick to make; I’m sure I made it in one day. The yarn I used is really soft and I love how thick and luxurious it feels when I wear it. It’s the perfect scarf – make one for yourself and then make more for the special people in your life!

To figure out placement of buttons, on the end with the  5 points and side closest to you, sew the first button between shell 1 and shell 2 in the 3rd row (the centre of the button should be about 2” from each edge).  The second button should also be between shell 1 and shell 2 but should be further down in row 7, approx. 3” from the centre of the other button. Once complete, wrap the cowl around your neck and button the buttons in the space between the shells in between rows 2 and 3.

Easy Modern Crochet Patterns

| Crochet

Beautiful modern crochet patterns. Easy crochet patterns that are quick to work up and make great gifts.

Modern easy crochet patterns from Belle Noelle Creations.

Easy Modern Crochet Patterns – I apologize for my temporary absence but I’ve been away this summer enjoying some much-needed family time at the lake. It wasn’t all fun and games though, I actually managed to squeeze in some work, including something I’m really excited to share. Yesterday I opened a new Etsy shop called Belle Noelle Creations – in honor of the love of my life, my daughter Noelle. The goal of my shop is to offer modern, stylish and easy to crochet patterns. I don’t like to spend a lot of time on a project (what can I say, I get bored easily) so most of my crochet patterns are items that can be made in a day or two. I’ll also be posting some cute kids crochet patterns in the shop shortly.

Hopefully you’ll get a moment to check out my new shop and let me know what you think. I’m appreciative of any feedback you may have.

Everyone loves free giveaways so….the first 30 people who can show me that they’ve pinned the above photo on Pinterest or shared this post on Facebook will receive FIVE FREE CROCHET PATTERNS from me! Just send me a quick email here to show me a link to your pin or post and I’ll send you your free crochet patterns.

Oh, and I’d like to give a huge shout out to my beautiful model and friend Sherri who makes my designs look fabulous!

Infinity scarf

Easy crochet infinity scarf

Crochet Infinity Scarf – Today it’s 28 degrees Celsius in Victoria, BC (it’s typically about 18-20 degrees in September here) – not the sort of day to be thinking about winter clothing but let’s be honest, fall is right around the corner. This past week I started a new infinity scarf project.  I made this pattern up based on a baby blanket I made last year that I absolutely loved.  This pattern is so easy and has a really nice rhythm to it once things get moving along.

If you’re new to crochet and would like to get some help learning the foundation crocheting skills, I suggest taking an e-course from Craftsy. They have fantastic instructors and their prices are very reasonable.

Materials:

  • 1.5 Skeins of Yarn – Bulky – I used Loops & Threads – Country Loom – Ocean Tide
  • Crochet Hook – US K10.5/6.50mm
  • Embroidery needle
  • Scissors`

Ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, sc = single crochet, dc = double crochet (U.S.)

Directions:

  1. Counting in 3’s, ch as many stitches as it takes to make a chain 60″ long (this pattern calls for original chain to be any multiple of 3 so just count “1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3…” as you make the chain and make sure that your last chain lands on chain number 3).  Check that the chain hasn’t twisted and join to the first stitch with a sl st so that it now forms a ring.
  2. Round 2: dc in every chain until you’re completed the round and join to the first dc with a sl st.
  3. Round 3: ch 3 and then sc between the 3rd and 4th dc, ch 3 and then sc in between the 6th and 7th dc.  You want to keep repeating this pattern every 3 double crochets until you’ve completed the round. Join with a sl st.
  4. Round 4: dc 3 into the chain you made in the previous round and then dc 3 into the next chain and continue in this manner until you’ve completed the round.  Join with a sl st.
  5. Repeat the pattern from Round 3 & 4 until the scarf is the desired width.
  6. Bind off and weave in the ends.

If any of my instructions are unclear please view this video which is where I learned how to make the baby blanket that this scarf was based on.  The video tutorial is wonderful and very easy to understand.
