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!

Make a slip knot and chain 36.

ROW 1: 2dc in the 4th ch from the hook, skip 3 ch, 1 ch in the next ch, * ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 3 chs, skip the next 3 ch, sc in the next ch, repeat from * across row, turn.

ROW 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in next st, *skip next 3 dc, [1 sc, ch 3, 3 dc] in the next ch-3 space, skip the st, repeat from * across ending skip last 2 sts, sc in the top of the turning chain, turn.

FINISH:

Sew on your buttons. One end has 4 points and the other end has 5 points. Lay the finished piece down with the end with 4 points on the right and the end with 5 points on the left. 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 center 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 center 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.

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.

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’ve 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.
