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 crochet 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 crochet pattern for beginners learning how to crochet or even the more experienced crocheter. It is super easy and quick to make; 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 crochet scarf pattern – make one for yourself and then make more for the special people in your life!

PATTERN:

Ch 36. 

Row 1: 2 dc in the 4th ch from the hook (skipped chs count as dc), skip 3 chs, sc in the next ch, *ch 3, dc in each of the next 3 chs, skip next 3 chs, sc in the next ch, repeat from * across, turn. 5 3-dc groups 

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in same st, [sc, ch 3, 3 dc] in each ch-3 space across, sc in the top of the turning chain, turn. 

Rows 3-47: Repeat row 2 forty-five times or until piece measures 35 inches.

Row 48: Sl st across to first ch space, [sc, ch 3, 3 dc] in each ch-3 space across, sc in each of the next 2 dc, sl st into the last dc. 

Fasten off, weave in ends. 

Finishing 

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 inches 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 inches from the center of the other button. 

To wear, wrap the cowl around your neck and button the buttons in the space between the shells of rows 2 and 3.

What do you think? Isn’t that such a cute stitch?
